12 years ago, a pair of teenagers in sunny Singapore found 2 rabbits hopping around their estate. They were bedraggled, mite-infested and thin. They took them in, housed them, fed them and got them groomed. They were named Adam and Eve. Little did this pair of teenagers know how apt the names were, because they soon had a garden-ful of bunnies and a room full of chinchillas!
Upon graduation,these teens realised there was no way they could care for their babies in the way that they wanted them to be cared for and juggle a full time job at the same time. The idea of Pets Republic was conceived in a small toilet whilst scrubbing down cages as a self-sustaining, temporary solution that grew into something much bigger than this teenage couple had ever imagined.
Pets Republic (circa 2006) started out as a small animal concept store in the residential heart of the East Coast. 10 years, 2 new stores and numerous transformations later, we have diversified into providing grooming and boarding services for our dog and cat pet-trons as well.
We strive to be an integrated pet hub that provides a holistic pet experience to all who walk through our doors. Balancing quality with price, we aim to be a store that serves one and all.
The Pets Republican ethos is one that strives to achieve the highest level of customer satisfaction from both human patron and furry pet-trons alike. And we do this with our small but dynamic and close-knit team!
