Welcome to your Hillcrest Unleashed in San Diego!

Your neighborhood Petco is open and ready to welcome you back with new cleanliness and safety standards. Shop in-store or try our new curbside pickup service and save on your order with pick-up available in 1-2 hours.

Following guidance from the CDC, beginning Friday, May 21, facial coverings are optional for fully vaccinated guests in our Petco pet care centers, unless mandated by state or local government. Our Petco pet care center associates will continue wearing facial coverings while we carefully evaluate what this means within each local community. All other established safety protocols remain in place at all Petco pet care centers, distribution centers and national support centers.

San Diego Unleashed by Petco

The Unleashed by Petco in San Diego is here to serve as the health and wellness partner for pets and pet parents. Petco's San Diego pet stores have friendly Pet Care Center Associates on hand to help you find appropriate, high-quality solutions for your pet food, supplies and care needs.

Hoping to find a new companion? Our pet store in San Diego has information on local and in-store adoption events where you can make a connection with a new pet looking for a forever home. Remember, you'll need toys, bedding, food bowls, crates and more to make your new pet feel at home.

Your local Unleashed by Petco helps make taking care of your pet easy. Keep your pet looking their best with our selection of accessories and grooming supplies.

Taking your dog on adventures is a great way to strengthen a bond, but if your dog isn't well-behaved, that's not always possible. Access puppy training classes in San Diego with onsite dog trainers or enroll in one of our online dog training classes to use positive reinforcement and promote social skills from the comfort of your home. Find dog training that is appropriate for every stage of your canine companion's life—from puppy to senior.

Our Pet Care Center Associates know how much you care about your pets' health and wellbeing and are happy to help you find the appropriate solutions and care for them. You can help prevent illness with a vaccination at our San Diego pet vaccine clinic, and once they have recovered you won't have to worry about your dog making canine friends at Harry Griffen Dog Park or Montevalle Dog Park.

Days spent at University Heights Open Space with your pet and friends are always a great time. Of course, you'll need to bring along a few toys and a leash. At Petco you can bring your pet with you to see which toys they like best before taking them home, which makes it easier to select interactive, appropriate toys to keep your pet engaged for hours.

Providing for your fine-feathered or scaly friends is easier when you go to your local Petco Pet Care Center. Browse our selection of bird cages, terrariums and aquariums to give your pet a healthy and engaging home, and purchase bird food, fish flakes, red wigglers, mealworms or live crickets to make sure they're well nourished.

Getting the care, supplies and food your pet needs from your San Diego pet shop is easier than ever. You can come inside and shop around, order Curbside Pickup or schedule a delivery. Our buy online, pickup in-store option further simplifies shopping for your pet—do the browsing and paying at home and simply come to the store to retrieve the items when you have the time.

Petco has been the neighborhood source for the products your pets require to live a fulfilling, happy and healthy life since 1965. Allow us to be the health and wellness partners for your beloved pets. Shop at the San Diego Unleashed by Petco at 308 Washington Street, near CVS and Whole Foods Market, to find the products to keep your pet happy and healthy.

All Petco stores are cleaned and sanitized daily as part of our normal business operations. In light of COVID-19, we're increasing the frequency and extent of those cleanings and taking proactive steps to ensure all Petco locations (including stores and our distribution and support centers) have ample hygiene and sanitation supplies available.

Out of an abundance of caution, we’re making disposable gloves and masks available to all Petco partners, and requiring that all partners wear masks while working in our stores. Additionally, we have installed plexiglass barriers in Petco stores located in areas that are highly impacted by COVID-19, and are in the process of making this safety feature available in stores nationwide.

Each Petco store has several hand sanitizer dispenser stations in place at varying locations throughout the store, and we've instructed our store teams to ensure hand sanitizer is also available at all checkout locations, grooming salons and other high traffic areas of the store.

Using in-store signage, we're encouraging customers to help us keep our communities safe by maintaining at least six feet of distance from others, limiting the number of people per shopping trips when possible, and other recommended precautions.
