"Host Families", i.e. caregivers, are carefully selected. Pets Are Inn coordinates travel schedules and provides round-trip pickup and delivery. Both pet and owner prefer the worry free services provided.
Products & Services
The Pets Are Inn concept was founded in 1982 by a couple in Minneapolis, Minnesota. When vacationing, the family pet, Chopin (who was disguised as a dog), did not do well in a kennel facility. On subsequent trips, they solicited friends, relatives or neighbors to care for Chopin. However, they were uncomfortable with this arrangement.
They had inadvertently stumbled upon an ideal alternative to kennel boarding. Namely, soliciting a "Host Family" to care for their furry family member while they were away. This humane alternative addressed equally the pet's physical and emotional needs and the family's peace of mind. Thus, Pets Are Inn was born as the "#1 Alternative for Boarding Your Pet While You're Away" with "All the Comforts of Home." Now, finding a loving family to care for your pet is not solely dependent upon having relatives or friends available since Pets Are Inn provides lodging for customer's pets in private homes. Pet lovers endorsed Pets Are Inn and its values! In 1986, the business began expanding through franchising.

To the customer, you can offer "Peace of Mind", a guilt free vacation, and a genuine alternative to kennel type boarding. Remember that there always have existed a large group of consumers who have been thoroughly uncomfortable using kennel facilities and imposing on friends, relatives, or neighbors. They believe their pet(s) will be ignored, isolated, and frightened ... not to mention traumatized ... being locked in a cage for days and weeks at a time ... coming home tired and horse from barking! As to what you can offer the pet? How does comfort... love... and affection sound in a "home environment". Not to mention a "real" bed to sleep on at night.
The main advantage is that there is NO inventory ... NO receivables ... and NO payables. Not only does this mean that you do not need to rent storage space, but you also do not have potentially thousands of dollars tied up in costly inventory.
