The Pack of Tampa Bay Celebrates 25th Professional Pet Sitters Week™ March 3-9

The Pack of Tampa Bay will donate 10 percent of all profits and match 100 percent of all tips March 3-9 to the Suncoast Animal League in honor of Professional Pet Sitters Week.

The Pack of Tampa Bay encourages pet owners and pet lovers alike to celebrate the 25th annual Professional Pet Sitters Week, March 3-9, 2019. Professional Pet Sitters Week (PPSW) was introduced by Pet Sitters International in 1995.

PPSW is celebrated annually the first full week in March, honors the hard-working pet-care professionals who care for the world’s companion animals when their owners are away. This week acknowledges the dedication of professional pet-care givers to provide unparalleled, quality care to their pet-owning clients.

“The Pack of Tampa Bay chooses to celebrate the wonderful clients who support our local business by giving back to the community through a donation to the Suncoast Animal League. We are proud to be members of a pet-loving community and are happy to give back,” said The Pack of Tampa Bay co-founder Morgan Thacker.

According to the 2017-2018 American Pet Products Association National Pet Owners Survey, pet ownership is at an all-time high. With the increase in pet ownership, the need for high-quality, professional pet sitting services has also increased.

The Pack of Tampa Bay offers Professional Pet Sitting, Dog Walking, and Doggy Adventure services in North Pinellas County and has plans of expanding soon. The Pack of Tampa Bay is fully insured and bonded, trained in Pet First aid and CPR and consistently serves hundreds of local families.

“The Pack of Tampa Bay is happy to join thousands of fellow pet-care professionals around the globe in celebrating this week that recognizes professional pet-sitting companies like The Pack of Tampa Bay,” said Tyler Baumgardner, co-founder of The Pack of Tampa Bay.

“It’s also an opportunity to remind pet owners that professional pet sitters like us are available and that professional pet-care businesses can provide peace of mind that other options cannot,” added Baumgardner.

In addition to donating to Suncoast Animal League, The Pack of Tampa Bay is sharing a free checklist to help local pet parents prepare for their professional pet sitter.
