Pets at Work
Imagine a future where pets and people are even better together. A future where taking your pet to work is the norm for most people, not just a lucky few.
At Purina, we passionately believe that pets and people are better together.
We want more people to experience all the amazing benefits that pets bring: from improved health to happier workplaces. We want to help make pet friendly workplaces a possibility for everyone.

At Purina New Zealand, we’ve welcomed pets into our offices since 2001. We’ve also carried out a research with other companies who’ve experienced the benefits of bringing people and pets together in the workplace. All this experience and research has given us real insight into the great things pets can offer companies and their employees.
In 2021 we conducted research* with a thousand pet lovers across New Zealand which revealed Kiwis are happier employees with pets around.
- 96% of New Zealand pet owner respondents felt that having a pet around while working from home improved their mental health
- 95% of respondents said pets made them a happier employee
- 71% of respondents said it helped reduce their stress levels
- 48% of respondents stated pets helped them get outside more with 43% taking more breaks.
