Nation's Leading Name in Professional At-Home Pet Care Expands Further Into Southern Rockland County, New York and Northern Bergen County, New Jersey
NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - July 7, 2008) - FETCH! Pet Care, the nation's largest pet care brand offering professional pet sitting and dog walking services, today announced it has further expanded its locations in Southern Rockland County, New York and Northern Bergen County, New Jersey to provide area residents with unsurpassed pet care services. FETCH! Pet Care now services more than 13,000 active clients throughout 1,700 cities and towns in 34 states across the U.S.
Brandon and Jill Iurato, who currently own and operate FETCH! Pet Care of Southern Orange County and Northern Sussex County, have increased their territory to include Northern Rockland County and Northern Bergen County. After 7 years as a K-9 enforcement officer with the U.S. Customs Service, Brandon left his 9 to 5 job to spend his day caring for pets. Together Brandon and Jill have expanded their franchise operation to further capitalize on a unique opportunity to combine their love of animals with a proven, turnkey home-based business for one of the lowest capital investments in the franchise industry today.
The Iuratos now provide pet owners throughout Southern Orange and Southern Rockland Counties, New York and Northern Sussex and Northern Bergen Counties, New Jersey, including Nanuet, Suffern, Monsey, Pearl River, Blauvelt, Mahwah, Park Ridge, Montvale and other neighboring towns, 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 Brandon. "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 more than 50 sitters ensures our client's pets receive the love, attention and skilled treatment expected of a professional caregiver, and that their 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 CEO, 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."

Pet Care of Southern Rockland County and Northern Bergen County are offering a 10% discount off each new client's initial service. FETCH!
