Rover.com Announces Launch in Big Apple

Apr 12, 2012 06:00 America/Los_Angeles

NEW YORK, April 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Rover.com, an online service that connects dog owners with local dog sitters, announced the launch of its New York marketplace today.

“New York is the perfect place to launch our local marketplaces,” said Aaron Easterly, CEO of Rover.com. “This city is home to a dedicated contingent of dog lovers who also travel and believe like we do that dogs prefer homes, not cages. We are excited to provide New York dog owners with an alternative to expensive kennels.”

New York dog owners can already browse hundreds of local sitter profiles for free on Rover.com and find affordable and convenient sitters in their neighborhood. Professional and non-professional dog sitters can list their homes and services for free on Rover.com.

Rover.com has partnered with New York’s Animal Haven and PAWS NY for this launch.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with a company that shares our values like Rover.com,” said Rachel Herman, PAWS NY Founder and President. “Like people, dogs need love and attention. Both PAWS NY and

Rover.com are dedicated to the idea that the best place for dogs to get that is in a happy home.”
Rover.com offers 24-hour customer support through its Rover.com Barkline and an absolute satisfaction guarantee that covers the dog, owner and sitter. Rover.com also provides its members with access to professional support, including training and certification, through partnerships with organizations like the International Association of Animal Behavioral Consultants (IAABC) and Pet Tech.

Earlier this week, Rover.com announced a $3.4 million Series A financing led by Madrona Venture Group, an early backer of marketplaces like Amazon.com and Redfin. Rover.com already has over 10,000 active members, tripling its member base in the last month.

    I get $50 per session and I go into the person’s home. My sessions are usually over an hour and many times for behavior things I really only need to go once and show the person what they need to be doing differently then I do a follow up phone call to see how things are going.
