SEATTLE, WA—November 12, 2020—Rover.com®, the world’s largest and most trusted network of five-star pet sitters and dog walkers, announced today a first-of-its-kind collaboration with Walmart, America’s largest and most trusted retailer. Pet parents can now access Rover services—including walking, sitting, boarding, and check-ins—through Walmart.com. This collaboration introduces Walmart Pet Care, which will include other pet support, such as veterinarian and insurance, provided by trusted brands.
“Rover’s mission is to make it easier for everyone to have the unconditional love of a pet in their life. We help pet parents find neighborhood animal care providers who match their pet’s needs, their lifestyle, and their budget,” said Bill Kong, Chief Marketing Officer. “As the largest retailer in the world, there’s no one better at meeting the evolving needs of its customers than Walmart. Like Rover, they are committed to the communities they serve. The new pet services will connect their customers to safe, convenient, and personalized pet care with our network of 300,000+ walkers and sitters.”
Walmart customers who book Rover services through Walmart Pet Care will receive a $20 Walmart gift card upon completion of their first booking to help them pay for food, toys, and other supplies for their furry family members. They’ll receive another $20 Walmart gift card when they complete their fifth booking within six months.
