Pet sharing is about connecting with each other and making new friendships with a pet.…
Share My Pet was founded in 2018 with the intention of enriching the lives of pets in NZ. We believe in supporting animal welfare and trying our best to support local charites that have animal’s best interests at heart.
Our company aim is to connect pet owners with animal lovers in local communities. Pets can recieve extra care and attention. However, we are also passionate about supporting local, national and international animal welfare
As our pet sharing community grows we have come to realize that pet sharing is hugely beneficial to people too. Mental well-being, improved physical health and being connected to your community are some of the huge benefits of pet sharing.
A pledge to improve the lives of pets and animals
To maintain Share My Pet, Dave and I continue to work our day jobs. As such we have a limited budget which goes towards the running and maintenance of the website. When, in the future Share My Pet begins to make money, we have pledged to give a percentage of the profits to animal welfare charities within NZ and worldwide.
In the mean time our passion for helping animals has led us to contribute from our own pockets. We often join up and support other community organisations to raise money for animal welfare charities. Dave and I also regulary organise our own pet friendly events to help raise money for animal welfare organisations we admire and support. Here is a brief outline of our involvement and support since we started Share My Pet.
