PetsLoveDeals.com Launches Pets Only Deal Site for SF/Marin/East Bay

Pet Deals and Discounts on Local Pet Goods and Services; Net Proceeds Shared With Local Animal-Related Non-Profits

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 14, 2011) - Not your average coupon deal site, PetsLoveDeals.com offers pet deals and discounts on pet-related goods and services in the San Francisco/Marin County/East Bay area while also showcasing local animal welfare non-profits and sharing a portion of net revenues with them. Typical deals will include discounts on local dog and cat boarding, grooming, training, pet sitting, dog walking, doggie day care, veterinary care, pet-friendly hotels, restaurants, and day trips, and products and supplies for all kinds of pets.

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 each pet deal purchased, PetsLoveDeals will donate up to 10 percent of their profits to one of nine local non-profits, including Marin Humane Society, Pets Unlimited, Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, WildCare Wildlife Rehabilitation, Wonder Cats Rescue, Marin Friends of Ferals, and Golden State Greyhound Adoption. Purchasers select the non-profit to receive the donation on check-out.
