Mad About Pets is an independently owned Family business located in Ferntree Gully, Victoria.

Since opening in September, 2004,   we have embraced the  Mountain Gate Shopping Centre community and shared their enthusiastic spirit for personal and friendly service. Over the years our commitment to quality and care has help us become one of Melbourne’s most exciting pet stores.  

In June 2007 when a nearby store became available we made the decision to split the business in two.  This way we each store could specialize in their own area of products and service to make it easier for our customers to find what they are looking for and get the very best specialized service.

Price match commitment

You can buy at Mad About Pets confidently that our prices are extremely competitive and that upon request we will match any advertised or in store price from an Australian Bricks & Mortar store for the same product if it is immediately available.  When a % discount is offered on a particular item we will price match with the actual dollar amount charged, not necessarily with the % discount offered.  All pricing matched will be like for like including delivery fee if applicable.  Our Price match commitment excludes stock liquidations, customer special orders, competitor clearance products or clearance stock that is close to use by date.  We do not match competitors category or store wide discounts.  Mad About Pets reserves the right to limit quantity of products available for price-matching at our discretion. We also reserve the right not to price match on prices below our wholesale cost  but you can be assured that as a family owned independent store we will do everything we can to always give you the right price for the products you want.
