SEATTLE, WA—January 24, 2023—Rover® (Nasdaq: ROVR) the world’s largest online marketplace for loving pet care, announced it has added its pet care services to Bright Horizons’ Back-up Care portfolio, the leading provider of care and education solutions. This partnership allows employers across the US, UK and Canada who leverage Bright Horizons to provide a more holistic benefits offering, including pet care, to their employees.
“Nearly all pet parents see their pets as part of the family, and the majority of US households have pets—so joining forces with Bright Horizons to offer Rover’s pet care services is a natural step in evolving the modern-day benefits package,” said Brent Turner, President and COO at Rover. “This is an exciting opportunity for Rover to add value to employers looking to provide more equitable benefits that suit every family’s needs.”
As of October 1, 2022, companies who leverage Bright Horizons Back-up Care can also offer employees the ability to convert their back-up care days into Rover credits. Rover credits are redeemable for pet boarding, dog and cat sitting, drop-in visits, doggy day care, and/or dog walking provided by loving pet care providers who list services on the Rover platform. For employers, this benefit makes it easier for their teams to manage competing priorities and focus on their work, because they know their pet is in good hands.
This first-of-its-kind partnership for Rover marks the company’s entrance into a new employer-sponsored distribution channel by enriching employer benefits packages to include pet care solutions.
