Fetch! Pet Care of Palo Alto, which offers dog walking and pet sitting services for pet owners, has just opened for business in Palo Alto, Redwood City and surrounding areas.
“As lifelong pet owners ourselves, we know how hard it can be to juggle going into the office or going on vacation with finding someone trustworthy to look after our fur babies,” said Tony Lacy-Thompson and Georgette Silver, owners of Fetch! Pet Care Palo Alto, in a press release. “That’s why we’re proud to bring Fetch with its national reputation to the Palo Alto, Stanford, Menlo Park and Redwood City areas.”
Pet ownership surged during the pandemic, with more people at home. As many return to the office, there's a demand for reliable pet care. Elderly pet owners, in particular, sometimes struggle to walk their dogs or are limited due to medical treatments. Fetch! Pet Care provides a solution, ensuring dogs are safely walked.
For some seniors, their beloved dogs can get a bit too much to handle on a walk, or they don't have time to go outside due to medical treatment. Fetch! Pet Care can ensure that dogs get walked without the risk of a fall.
“We also see this as an additional service that pet-friendly businesses and hotels can offer employees and guests,” said Lacy-Thompson, “ensuring that employees can have their dog walked while they focus on their work, and hotel guests can have a little more free time during their stay.”
All Fetch pet sitters are thoroughly vetted employees, undergoing training, bonding, and background checks before starting.
