PetsLoveDeals.comlaunched a website to benefit local pet organizations. The company generally features discounts on pet products as well as services such as, dog and cat boarding, grooming, training, pet sitting, dog walking, doggie day care, and veterinary care.
Pets Love Deals, Inc. Co-Founders Susan Brautovich and Virginia Lukkes, both marketing veterans, business owners and pet lovers, saw the need to create a pet coupon discount site aimed exclusively at Bay Area pet lovers that also benefitted animal non-profits.
“We knew the large deal sites like Groupon and Living Social occasionally run a ‘pet stuff’ deal and that there were a few national deal sites for mostly low-end pet stuff,” said Brautovich, “but none were focused on San Francisco pet coupons or the Bay Area and none offered a means of supporting local animal non-profits. Bay Area pets owners spent over $1 billion on their pets in 2010. A lot of them are also passionate supporters of local animal shelters, animal rescue, and wildlife advocacy organizations.”
“We also found that pet lovers are looking for great experiences they can have with their pet as well as essential goods like food or supplies, and pet services for less such as grooming and boarding. That’s why we’re featuring deals on pet-friendly hotels, restaurants, and fun day trips you can take with your pet,” added Lukkes.
For every purchase, PetsLoveDeals will donate 10 percent of profit to one of nine local non-profits. Costumers select the non-profit to receive the donation on check-out.
