Fetch! Pet Care Franchise
Fetch! Per Care is a franchise for a pet sitting company. Paul Mann founded Fetch! Pet Care in 2002. The first location was in Berkley, California. Paul didn’t want to leave his pets in kennel boardings.
He wanted his pets to make sure that he doesn’t put his pets health at risk and wants them to receive the kind of attention as he would have given them himself. He founded it hard to find pet sitters and realized that the real good ones are consisted of only 1-2 persons and they are always booked. This was when he had his “Aha” moment. He then offered his free, in-home consultations with professionally screened, insured, and experienced pet sitters. He also set-up locations for each pet sitter to be able to accommodate every pet owner’s distinct need. After 2 years, Fetch! Expanded and covered the San Francisco Bay area and soon became the leading pet sitting company in Northern California. They then had 900 clients and 80 pet sitters. Because of its great success, they opened their first franchise in San Diego, California.
