Who is Watching Your Pet While you are Out of Town?
WHO CAN LOVING PET OWNERS TRUST TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR PETS WHILE THE’RE AWAY?
The National Association of Professional Pet Sitters is a national non- profit trade association with a mission that promotes the concept of in- home pet care, supporting the professionals engaged in in-home pet care, promoting the welfare of animals and improving and expanding the industry of pet sitting.
More than 60% of all the households in the United States have some kind of pet. In fact, there are an estimated ll0 million cats and dogs alone, not to mention all the hamsters, birds, fish, and other pets. According to the American Humane Society, these pets are happiest when they're at home, surrounded by familiar sights, sounds and smells.
In the past, however, most pet owners had few choices concerning care for their animals when they were away from home. They could turn to friends, neighbors or professional boarders -- all of which are possible solutions, but not ideal for every pet. Many have found that a new alternative presents the best choice of all -- a professional pet caregiver who comes into the home to care for the pet while the owner is away.
Candance Labane-Godfrey, who is a member of the Board of NAPPS and also runs her own pet sitting business, is available to speak on such topics as:
· How can NAPPS assist pet owners in finding professional pet sitters?
· How many pet sitters are there in the United States? How many are truly professional with going businesses?
· What are the benefits of using a professional pet sitter?
· What should you look for in a professional pet sitter?
· What types of people are pet sitters?
· How much time is spent with a pet?
· How does NAPPS contribute to the welfare of animals?
The incredible growth of the in-home pet-care industry over the past few years is evidence of its effectiveness in well-satisfied owners with well cared for pets.
