Pets Are Inn Franchise Opportunity
At Pets Are Inn you are given the unique opportunity to be able to entrust the safety and welfare of your pet while you are away.
Engaging in the Pets Are inn franchise will allow you to ensure the well being of the clients' pets while they are away for several days.
The Pets Are Inn company pre screens private homes and families that will serve as the “Host family” in caring for the customer’s pets. This is especially popular when certain families need to be away for a while or are on vacation. Normally they will look for relative or friend that will be able to take care of the pet. Otherwise the next resort would be to rely on outside sources, which is a standard kennel facility. Nowadays since pets are considered as members of the family, pet owners are hesitant to leave them at kennels in cages, where their freedom is restricted and where they may not feel as comfortable as they are accustomed to.
This is where Pets Are Inn takes over, giving you the option of leaving your pet in the hands of reliable families, where the pets serve as lodgers in their private homes. This will give the pet a loving home environment in which they will feel more accustomed to as compared to being locked up in a cage at a kennel. In the hands of a loving family the pet gets exactly that, love. It is because of this that the pet is not deprived of attention, caring and affection which has become part of its daily routine with its owner.
To make reservations the customer will need to call and inquire ahead of time in order for the company to make the ample arrangements. What follows is an interview from which the staff will collect the required information regarding the clients’ pet. It is from this information that a match host family is acquired. Therefore, upon departure of the client, the pet will be shipped directly to this host family which will by then be well prepared to care for the animal. All important information regarding shots, medication, habits, exercise schedules and feeding must be discussed and listed thoroughly.
