As you know, at Jetpets we are ‘pet people’, so it makes sense that our workplace is filled with our favourite furry friends! We love that we are lucky enough to be able to bring our pets to work, not only does it make the day that much more enjoyable, we get to spend more quality time with our furry companions!

We think that’s conclusive evidence! Bring on more ‘Puppy Fridays’…
