PetVibe Offers The Pet Community A Social Hub Of Awesome
SPONSORED POST – By Erin Kirkpatrick
Being a pet owner and part of the pet community is an indescribable feeling, but as with anything in life, it comes with some challenges and trials. When people I knew started looking into adopting and welcoming pets into their families, they started planning all the things they were going to do with their new bundle. Whether it’s intentional or unintentional, pet owners can often run into some resistance and issues when their pets are in tow
If you’re a pet owner, know a pet owner, know a pet, or simply have an affinity for pets, you’ll love PetVibe. The app, which is available on both iOS and Android, has a social networking feel and layout, but its main goal is to create a “hub” specifically for the pet community.
It’s free, it’s APP-solutely awesome, and it’s got some features that address the annoyances and problems that plague pet owners. We’ve all been through the worst, now it’s time for the best (app).
NEVER EXPERIENCE A “SHORTAGE” OF ACTIVITIES AND FUN EVENTS
Get ready to fill your social calendar and attend an assortment of events … with your pet!
Many of us have found ourselves at the dog park or out on adventures with our pets wishing we had some additional company, a change of scenery, or other activities to partake in. Dust off that list of things you planned to do with your pet pal long, long ago and go do them! It’s go-time, people. We’re talking meetups in local dog-friendly parks and businesses, and pet-centric events like dog festivals with other members of the pet community. All these activities, meetups, and events are user driven, meaning they can be joined and created by anyone on PetVibe!
STOP THE “GUESSING GAME” WITH ACCESS TO PEER-REVIEWED PET SERVICES AND BUSINESSES (1st SCREEN)
Wouldn’t it be ultra-convenient to have access to a directory of pet businesses and not-for-profits in the area? Well, it’s a reality now! Gone are the days of aimlessly searching around for places that provide care and services for your pets. Now, you’ll have the information and all the answers at your fingertips, even while you’re traveling. Yes, you read that correctly! PetVibe readjusts based on your geographic location, so you’ll be able to expertly navigate towards pet-friendly businesses and not-for-profits no matter where you are. Users also have the option to submit and view user-driven reviews of pet services and businesses – an easy way to let the community know about the best pet options in the area.
GET THE MOST FROM THE MONEY YOU INVEST IN CARING FOR YOUR PETS (2nd SCREEN)
There’s no denying that pets can be pricey, but we think that they’re worth every penny. You’ve got food, toys, checkups, and a list of other expenses that you’d rather not think about. I bet everyone reading this would jump at the chance to put a little extra spending money back in his or her jeans. PetVibe connects pet owners with promotions on products they were already going to buy for a steal of a deal. Now, go put that money to good use and buy your beloved companion a toy. PetVibe is also invested in supporting the success of local stores and services. A loyalty program and e-commerce add-on that rewards app users for shopping at participating establishments is currently in the works! Let’s keep the local community thriving!
ALLEVIATE THE WORRY OF MISSING OR LOST PETS (1st SCREEN)
If you’ve ever had a pet go missing or knew someone who has, you know that it’s an extremely raw, emotional time of worrying, using tissue box upon tissue box, and waiting for news. Wipe those tears up because PetVibe app has a lost pet alert feature. This handy functionality allows you and your community to receive notifications and alerts from local organizations when a lost pet is found. It also notifies local rescues and shelters that a pet is lost. We hope that you never have to experience the ordeal of a lost or missing pet, but rest assured the search and rescue process will be better with this app on your phone.
KEEP PET OWNERS AND THEIR PETS TOGETHER, NO MATTER WHAT (2nd SCREEN)
Sometimes, life doesn’t go as planned, and we’re left in dire straits. This situation is especially trying if you’ve got a pet in tow. Luckily, the PetPals section was designed to give pet owners in peril support and assistance. Whether it’s temporary help or co-ownership, PetPals is made up of “pet sharing” classifieds to help pet owners and their pets stay together. For example, a person that is no longer able to support their pet on their own can find a local partner who loves pets but can’t fully commit to one. By reaching out to the pet community for support in the shape of co-ownership, pets are kept out of shelters and avoid the traumatic and emotional process of re-homing.
CREATE AND BUILD UP YOUR SOCIAL NETWORK
Pet owners have probably asked themselves (more than once), “How do I connect with other pet owners online in a meaningful way?” Wouldn’t it be nice to connect with new people and learn about the local pet community? PetVibe users can create social profiles for themselves and their pets, complete with pictures, videos, advice, pet news, and additional updates. User can also create and attend meetups, and add events! You’ll be connecting with likeminded pet owners before you know it!
RAISE MONEY FOR SHELTERS, RESCUES, AND NOT-FOR-PROFITS
Did you need another reason to download this app? It’s free and it helps you give back, so now you have no excuses.
PetVibe is in the process of partnering with not-for-profits, shelters, and rescues to help raise the necessary funds to make a difference in the community and provide the long overdue care for our four-legged friends who need it most.
The app is also offering free in-feed advertising spots for all not-for-profits, in an effort to find homes for adoptable pets and to notify users of any upcoming events, lost and found pets, and news.
PetVibe’s community is extremely supportive and accessible to everyone and anyone, even if you don’t have a pet (yet). When all is said and done, it’s a community of animal lovers who want to connect, relate, advise, and come together to make the pet experience – from whatever vantage point – the best it can be.
