Coming Soon: WoofMeets Will Connect Pet Parents with the Best Pet Sitters in Town

This new online marketplace will help pet owners find local sitters providing a variety of needs.

WoofMeets is a forthcoming online marketplace connecting pet owners with the best local pet sitters who treat their dogs and cats like family. Services will include dog boarding, doggy daycare, dog walking and training, house sitting, drop-in visits, and other offerings that sitters choose to provide. The site will launch on November 1.

Pet sitters and owners are likely familiar with similar services such as Rover and Wag. However, WoofMeets aims to build a new network that will improve the model and benefit both sets of users in a number of ways. Most strikingly, pet owners can expect lower service fees, and pet sitters will keep more of their earnings. 

For Pet Sitters

Pet sitters make about $16 an hour on average in the United States, and some can earn up to $1,000 a month depending on the services they provide. Using a pet-care app is an excellent way to connect with local pet owners and advertise services, but sitters should read the fine print to ensure they’re getting the best rates for their work.

For instance, Rover allows pet sitters to set their own rates, but it takes a 20 percent service fee from each booking. With Wag, earnings are based on the services provided and the rate set, but it takes a whopping 40 percent cut of profits.  

WoofMeets will only collect a 9 percent service charge from the pet sitter if they are not on a subscription plan. In addition, there are two types of service models pet sitters can use to lower their portion of the fee. 

Through the free basic plan, pet sitters only pay a 9 percent service charge; however, subscribing to the site’s month membership plan lowers the fee significantly. In fact, the top-tier option eliminates the sitter’s portion of the service fee altogether. Subscribers also receive trust badges to add to their profiles, which makes them more trustworthy and credible to pet owners.

Sitters that don’t want to purchase a subscription can still reduce their share of the service charge. WoofMeets rewards sitters that actively use the site — the more bookings a sitter has, the less they’ll pay in service fees. For instance, if a sitter has 51-80 bookings a month, they’ll pay a 6 percent service fee. The pet owner would cover 4.5 percent, and the sitter would pay 1.5 percent.

For Pet Parents

When pet parents use WoofMeets, they can be confident they’ll be connected with a local pet sitter they can trust to provide outstanding care for their pet. The site will thoroughly vet all its sitters and encourage them to receive ongoing pet care education. In addition, support will be available 24/7 to ensure a safe experience for both sitters and pets.

WoofMeets also guarantees that pets will be well-treated by its sitters and offers a veterinary care reimbursement of up to $25,000 if needed. 

Finally, pet owners will have transparent pricing. In addition to the sitter’s fees, owners will pay a 4.5 percent service charge — that’s it.

Conclusion

WoofMeets is the much-anticipated online marketplace connecting pet owners with reliable and trustworthy pet sitters in their local areas. Through up-front pricing and 24/7 support for all users, pet parents will be confident their pets are in good hands. And for the sitters in the WoofMeets community, low service rates will ensure they keep more of the money they earn. The site will launch on November 1.
