There’s a new Uber-style app called Paws en route, which is a pet transportation service that lets you book transportation for your pet.
This Indie88 feature is presented with Paws en route. Transporting your pet around Ontario and the GTA is easy with Paws en route. Need a ride for your pet or with your pet to the airport, daycare, boarding, pet playdate or to see the veterinarian, pet groomer, family/friends or anywhere around town? Our dedicated team of pet experienced and pet-friendly drivers are here for you! Download our app at the Google or Apple App stores or Visit pawsenroute.com today!
Compatible with both iOS and Android, you can book a ride for your pet in the same way that you’d book a car for a human via rideshare, with the price calculated by both time and distance travelled. The service is ideal for picking up or dropping off your pet at the vet, groomer, or park, and you don’t have to worry about a rideshare driver turning you down.
The business was started by Dacia Rohlehr back in 2017, and it enables pet transportation “for any pet, any time, any place.”
“We love pets! We believe that pets should feel loved, safe and secure at all times. Because we are pet owners too, we felt compelled to create Paws en route,” Paws en route explained to Indie88. “As important, is our in-depth understanding of pet owners’ transportation needs, and the limitations that exist in the marketplace for them.”
“We strongly believe that the transportation of our four-legged family members should not be left to just anyone. We knew it was paramount for our fellow pet owners that all Paws en route personnel and drivers have pet ownership experience, pet care expertise, and knowledge.” Paws en route only hire pet-experienced and pet-friendly drivers, and their team is made up entirely of people who have been a pet parent, worked in the pet industry, have love and compassion for pets, have great customer service and communication skills, and have a clean driving record with no criminal background. Each driver completes both a background and driver’s abstract check.
Paws en route have also adapted to the COVID-19-era by implementing strict protocols. “In Canada, approximately 1 million new puppies have been adopted and we are assisting by booking pet air fares, preparing travel documents and providing ground transportation in order to get these pups to their forever homes”
The company boasts a R.E.S.T. AssuredTM transportation solutions system, which is an operating philosophy based on research of what pet parents expect out of a pet transportation service. R.E.S.T. stands for reliability, experience, safety and trust.
