About

A history of thinking outside the box, bag, and tank.

Succeeding as a distributor to independent pet retailers requires independent thinking. This does not mean simply filling orders, but fueling their growth by understanding the difference between trends and fads and by offering an innovative mix of premium products and unsurpassed customer service.

This combination of front-office expertise and back-office efficiency has shaped Southeast Pet since it opened its doors as Southeast Aquatics in 1975. Two years later, founders Greg and Holly Judge saw an opportunity to expand beyond fish and invested in a small pet supply company. Call it evolution.

Greg and Holly’s son, Ryan, joined the business in 2000. Together, the Judges have built Southeast Pet into one of the most respected pet supply and food distributors in the nation.

Based in Metro Atlanta, Southeast Pet’s 100,000 square-foot distribution center supplies retailers in six southeastern states with the new products and fresh ideas companies need to stay competitive in this fast-changing industry.
