RISMEDIA, Nov. 5, 2007-With an estimated 70 million pet owners in the United States, many people each year are faced with the difficult decision of how to safely move their pets during relocation or travel. As a result, a leading pet relocation company offering door-to-door shipping services is experiencing strong demand for its custom pet travel services.
According to the company, PetRelocation.com is a one-stop-shop for the local, national and international transportation of live animals, with a strong emphasis on assisting companies with relocating employees who are pet owners.
“Relocating can be a stressful time and worrying about a pet can make matters worse,” said Kevin O’Brien, president of PetRelocation.com. “We provide a hassle-free solution that gives people one less thing to be concerned about.”
Headquartered in Austin, Texas, the company has just launched a newly-designed Web site, offering real-time, interactive communities with information for pet lovers.
Additionally, pet travel supplies are now being offered to accompany shipping needs, including crates, water dishes and bedding.
Web site visitors will also have free and unlimited access to hundreds of pages with information specifically focused on their destination, including details on local veterinarians, dog parks and vaccination requirements.
“We’re excited about the new site,” stated O’Brien. “It’s a great resource for relocating pet owners and will allow us to reach out to a wider base of customers.”
Along with its established corporate clients, PetRelocation.com has also seen growing interest from other markets, including pet breeders and traditional moving companies with pet shipping requests.
With more than 40 million Americans moving each year, O’Brien contends more people than ever before will be needing assistance transporting their pets.
“With over 60% of US households owning a pet, there is a significant segment of the population that can take advantage of our services,” he said.
