Pet ownership is at an all-time high. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals estimates 23 million households acquired a pet during the pandemic. The spike in ownership has sparked the growth of innovative pet products and services. Meanwhile, pet businesses are facing hiring struggles. The pet industry is seeing staffing challenges across all sectors, including retail, manufacturing and veterinary care.
Where both pet ownership and pet businesses overlap, Seda Bolulu and Fadi Rasheed find a solution that benefits everyone. Introducing PackHire.
