What do you do when you can't find a dog sitter?
April 17, 2012
Packing up for a vacation and having your trusted dog-sitter back out at the last minute is an event that you may have dealt with at some point. Thankfully, a new company called Rover.com, has been set up to match responsible pet sitters with dog owners all over the country so they can find the ideal price point and experience that suits their needs, according to the New York Times.
Rover.com works by allowing dog owners to create profiles for their pooches that list a selection of relevant information, as well as a zip code. Sitters can also create a profile, and pet parents can read reviews, compare pricing and location to find the ideal choice for their canines.
The company has proven so popular that it has $3.4 million from numerous investors to expand nationwide operation, reports SignalNews.com. After being launched in November 2011, the site now has 10,000 active users in the U.S. and is available in 500 cities.
Another reliable way to find a sitter is through New York veterinary services or a New York Animal Shelter. These organizations can provide a referral to a trusted local professional.
