Fetch! Pet Care, America’s largest franchise provider of professional pet sitting and dog walking services, has been selected to join the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP). Fetch! Pet Care was one of 42 new MSEP Partners who joined the initiative at the Department of Defense (DoD) New Partner Induction Ceremony and Partner Meeting in Washington, D.C. titled “The Power of Connection,” on Tuesday, October 22. They plan to formally launch the program within its franchise system on Veterans Day which is Monday, November 11th.
Military spouses have a 24 percent unemployment rate and a 25 percent wage gap compared to their civilian counterparts, according to the Partnership. The inability of spouses to obtain and retain fulfilling employment as they relocate compromises the quality of life of many military families. MSEP was created by the DoD in 2011 in response to a growing readiness issue and has reached a milestone with more than 400 employers as partners.
“We’re honored to be a MSEP Partner,” said Fetch! Pet Care President James Mowery. “Military spouses are an often overlooked and undervalued community, however, they are some of the most loyal, resilient, motivated, and adaptable people you’ll ever have the privilege of working with. As a leader in the pet services industry, Fetch! is very proud to continue our effort in supporting the military and veteran communities.”Read the Press Release
Before most people toss the pumpkins off the porch, Sue Reeg and Cora Baker, owners of Fetch! Pet Care in Ewing, are busy booking a hectic holiday season. Amid vacations, parties, late work nights, shopping and cooking, precious pets may get less attention in the holiday hustle.
“Clients and pets can benefit from the numerous services Fetch! offers, from regular walks for the dog to daily visits when you’re away from home,” says Cora Baker. They will also water plants, collect mail, take out trash and rotate blinds and lights as if someone is home. “That’s the Fetch! slogan – We’ve got your tail covered!” Cora affirms.
Fetch! tailors each service to meet your pet’s needs. They will feed your pet, play or walk and love them – whatever the pet wants and needs to keep them happy and healthy. They also tend to necessities, like scooping the litter box, and provide specialty services such as giving medications, including injections.
After each visit, the sitter communicates with the client, providing notes and pictures, through the My Fetch! app. The app includes GPS tracking so everyone knows a service is completed. Clients can message sitters and provide reviews and feedback through the app. It really helps to keep the Fetch! “Happy Pets Promise” – peace of mind, convenience and satisfaction guaranteed!Read the Article

When you’re going on vacation or working long hours, you’ll want to rest assured your pet is in good hands, being loved and receiving the proper care and attention to remain healthy and happy. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a mid-day walk and check-in, or if you’re planning to travel abroad for a month or more. Fetch! Pet Care will ensure your furry friends are looked after, whatever their needs. Cora Baker and Sue Reeg have worked for the franchise for about eight years and are now recent owners, having taken over the business from a couple who retired after ten years of ownership and working within the community.
“As pet owners ourselves for thirty years, we know how difficult it can be to get someone you trust to look after your pets,” says Cora.
Cora and Sue are the happy owners of their dog Sadie, a Jack Russell terrier and Greyhound mix. They started working with the previous owners doing this job on the side for the love of pets. The two always wanted to own a business and took it as their opportunity when the previous owners retired.
“We had big shoes to fill with the former owners,” says Sue. “Paul and Deb did a lot of training with us before handing the business over and reviewed with us the pets’ personalities, traits and special needs. It was a seamless transition. We already had relationships with many of the pets and had visited them before.”Read the Article
