FETCH! Pet Care(TM) Expands Into Salem, Oregon

Nation's Leading Name in Professional At-Home Pet Care Now Servicing Salem, Oregon Pet Owners

SALEM, OR--(Marketwire - April 15, 2008) - FETCH! Pet Care, the nation's largest pet care brand offering professional pet sitting and dog walking services, today announced it has launched a new location in Oregon's Salem to Wilsonville region to provide area residents with unsurpassed pet care services. This new franchise marks the 159th FETCH! Pet Care location that, in aggregate, now services more than 10,000 active clients throughout 1,500 cities and towns in 33 states across the U.S.

Greg Hart and Sheila Twist, who own and operate FETCH! Pet Care of Salem to Wilsonville, gave up their respective professions in sales management and marketing to establish the franchise, capitalizing on their love of animals with a proven, turnkey home-based business for one of the lowest capital investments in the franchise industry today. They now provide pet owners throughout Salem, Oregon, including Wilsonville and Newberg, with a range of services that meet every need and budget, including boarding and daycare in the sitter's home, overnight sitting or daily visits in the client's home, private and group dog walks, pet taxiing, and miscellaneous home care. A free in-home consultation permits clients, pets and sitters to get pre-acquainted and address each pet's unique needs.

"Selecting a sitter to care for a pet and a home is a critically important decision," notes Sheila. "Now, there's no need to impose on family members or friends, or subject one's pet to kennel boarding. Our highly trained staff of sitters ensures all pets receive the love, attention and skilled treatment expected of a professional caregiver, and that the client's home remains secure."

To assure operational efficiencies, FETCH! Pet Care employs a sophisticated telephone dispatch system and advanced software that tracks assignments and delivers real-time electronic client order confirmations and automated sitter assignment reminders. In addition, each sitter undergoes a thorough criminal background check, references review, and training regimen, and each location is fully bonded and insured.

Paul Mann, FETCH! Pet Care founder and president, notes, "The demand for professional pet care services is at an all-time high -- especially those that allow pets to maintain their routine while receiving the attention they need. With many pet owners frustrated by the lack of professional and reliable caregivers, or reluctant to kennel their pets due to health and other concerns, our safe, convenient, and nurturing care provides peace of mind."

As part of the grand opening celebration, through May 29, 2008 FETCH! Pet Care of Salem to Wilsonville is offering a 10% discount off each new client's initial service. FETCH! Pet Care of Salem to Wilsonville can be reached by telephone at 866-237-2205 and via email at sw@fetchpetcare.com or on the web at www.fetchpetcare.com.
