HomeMyPet.com helps to find pet sitters in the UAE
Dubai-based pet boarding platform aims to connect pet owners with verified pet sitters
A new online service for the UAE aims to help pet owners find trusted people to look after their pets while they are on vacation.
The ‘pet boarding platform' HomeMyPet.com, based in Dubai, has been set up to create a verified community of ‘pet sitters', searchable by location, rating and reviews, so that owners can find a trusted person to look after their pet.
Pet sitters have been carefully screened and verified through global security specialists Experian, a key partner of HomeMyPet, to ensure the safety of pets that have been left under their care.
The platform also provides first-hand customer support in the way of a booking guarantee for pet owners, which offers complete protection and full refund in the event of last minute booking cancellations or if a pet owner isn't completely satisfied with any part of the booking process, as well as 24/7 support to both pet owners and sitters.
HomeMyPet was founded by Amy and Lee, a British couple and avid animal lovers, living in the UAE. The couple said that like many families in the UAE, they travel often and had been struggling to find trusted and affordable pet care, so they created a platform that would help both pet owners and pet lovers in the region.
"As big pet lovers ourselves, we're so happy to bring this unique pet care solution to the UAE. With one click on our platform, pet owners can find a loving community of verified pet sitters who can't wait to look after their furry babies whilst they're away on their travels, whether it be in the comfort of the owner's home or theirs!" says the spokesperson of the company.
"With the ability to book and pay directly through the website, exceptional 24/7 customer support and reservation guarantee, HomeMyPet is the easiest and most caring way for pet parents to find and book a loving pet sitter."
The company says it is also working with a number of local animal charities on initiatives such as matching any charitable donations made by pet owners during the booking process, as well as donating one free meal to an animal in need for each email newsletter sign up they receive from their website.
