About Us

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.
