PETZCheckIN.com is a third party online pet sitter verification service. Members use the system to help remind friends, family or pet sitters to care for their pet while they are away. PETZcheckIN.com removes the human risk out of pet sitting, gives pet owners peace of mind and provides a way for pets to “tell” owners if they are hungry. The service guarantees that pets will always be cared for by requiring the pet sitter to call into a toll free number when they arrive at the client’s house. If by chance something happens and they don’t check in, the automated PETZcheckIN.com system calls the pet sitter to see if they are planning to provide care. If the pet sitter is unavailable, cannot be reached, or for some reason cannot provide care, PETZcheckIN.com activates the owner’s backup plan of friends or family who agreed previously to help in case of need.
Pet owners can also enter their pet’s information into the ePETZid form including food types, medications and vet contact information, which will remain on their personal profile on the website; just login for quick access to your pets emergency information. PetzCheckIN.com works on a credit system. Members purchase credits ranging from 5 to 30 that directly reflect the number of events purchased. For example 1 credit can equal 1 reminder call.
