FETCH! Pet Care™ Expands Into Canton, Michigan
Nation's Preeminent Professional Pet Care Network Now Servicing Pet Owners Throughout Canton, Michigan and Surrounding Areas
CANTON, MI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 25, 2006 -- FETCH! Pet Care, America's largest and most
sophisticated pet care franchise offering professional pet sitting and dog
walking services, today announced it has launched a new location in Canton,
Michigan to provide area residents with unsurpassed pet care services.
This new franchise marks the 50th FETCH! Pet Care location that, in
aggregate, now service over 900 cities and towns throughout Arkansas,
California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana,
Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North
Carolina, Pennsylvania and Texas.
Duane Schiller, who owns and operates FETCH! Pet Care of Canton, left his
profession as a corporate travel agent to establish the franchise,
capitalizing on a unique opportunity to combine his love of animals with a
proven, turnkey home-based business for just $6,000 -- among the lowest
capital investments in the franchise industry today. He now provides pet
owners throughout Canton, as well as Livonia, Plymouth and Westland, 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 Schiller. "Now, there's no need to impose on family
members or friends, or subject their 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 licensed, 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
