How is this different from other pet care services?

Petterr is unique in that it relies on earned trust first and foremost. Pets are like family, and therefore the ideal candidates to provide pet care in an owner’s absence are those who already know and love the owner’s pet. A reliance on existing relationships and connections is the distinguishing factor from other alternative boarding and pet care service providers. Since your friends and people you know and trust are your best option to watch your pet, if someone is not in your network, they are not a viable option.

Ok, Ok….this sounds great but how does Petterr make money?

We make money through a 10% listing fee on all Woofs Posted. It gets added to the treat once you close out the process. If you post a woof and cancel it, we’ll collect the listing fee and credit it to your account for future use. By taking a small percentage off of each request for service, or “Woof”, Petterr will earn income that will sustain the app and allow us to add features and maintain partnerships.

Who is behind Petterr? Where did it come from?

Pet parents and pet lovers just like you. Petterr is a team of pet owners who came up with the idea after running into inadequate options for pet care. So, we did something about it! We built a solution for finding someone to watch our kids without having to ask friends one by one, corner them for help, send them to a kennel or leave them with a stranger. Then we came up with a way to give pet lovers and friends that love our pets an option to help without feeling obligated or awkward asking for money.

Is Petterr available on Android?
