Book Dog Boarding on Rover, Donate to a Cause

Our Sit a Dog, Save a Life program lets you raise money for local dogs-in-need by doing something you do already: asking your neighbors to watch your dog instead of leaving them in a kennel. Many Rover sitters in Philadelphia donate a percentage of their earnings to nonprofits through Sit a Dog, Save a Life. When you book with a sitter who has the Rover Donation Badge on their profile, you're helping dogs in need, right here in Philadelphia.

We're proud to be supporting over 200 organizations across the U.S., including the City of Elderly Love.
