How we began
In 2007 Deb, the founder of PetCloud, saw an opportunity in at-home local pet care when she frequently experienced a lack of availability when trying to book a pet stay with kennels and found that over peak periods, facilities around the city were quite booked out.
Other factors that she experienced were;
- Family members weren't pet lovers
- Employers req’d her to be away interstate (often at short notice)
- Her dogs picked up canine cough and seemed a little shaken up after previously boarding at a kennel
- It was a very impersonal experience
- Difficult to negotiate times if her plane was late to pick up pets as the kennel had set times.
When she did use an at-home boarding service, she had to wait for the paperwork to arrive in the post and then drive across town to meet a person she knew nothing about, didn’t know what they looked like, or what qualifications they had.
All of this made her think: “Surely I’m not the only one, and this has got to be online!” And after asking other friends who had pets, she confirmed they had all experienced similar challenges.
And so, PetCloud was born.
Why it Matters
Pet Owners without a network of animal lovers nearby to rely on can find it difficult and stressful finding pet care. Sometimes its moving house, a relationship break up and a new home living situation, a renovation, interstate funerals, a holiday, an interstate corporate meeting, sickness, accident, a new job requiring fly-in, fly-out rosters, hospitalisation, late stage pregnancy and labour, shift work, all kinds of reasons are why people need pet sitters, house sitters, groomers, vet taxis, and dog walkers.Read about our Social Responsibility
