What we've learned about maximizing productivity from the Time To Pet Users caring for more than 300,000 pets.
As we've all experienced over the last few months, life can be unpredictable — like seriously unpredictable! This has been especially true for the pet care industry. Working closely with well over 2,000 professional pet care businesses in sixteen different countries, we here at Time To Pet feel qualified to comment on what's currently happening in the pet care industry and where we think it's heading.
Let's start with the enormous, dancing elephant in the room. Things are not business as usual right now, and they haven't been since before COVID-19 came into our lives. We have seen how this global pandemic has impacted friends, family, and small businesses worldwide. For an industry that mainly relies on people heading to work and leaving their homes, pet care pros have definitely felt the effects. That said, we have seen things starting to improve for pet care pros month over month as businesses have safely started getting back into the swing of things. And that brings us to the bright future ahead for pet sitting, dog walking, and pet care businesses!
We've read dozens of news stories about shelters with empty cages from all the new adoptions. Woohoo! According to Vox, Petfinder reported a web traffic increase of 43% and an increase of adoption inquires by 116% in the second half of March.

With more families adopting and fostering new pets this year, we do not doubt that professional, reliable pet care will always be in high demand — especially with the recent surge of first-time pet parents.
