PETspot is an innovative, fast-growing Tech Startup based in Sydney, Australia who is bringing the pet industry online.
Countless industries have benefited from having a centralised online platform, Cars with Carsales, Holidays with Airbnb, Streaming with Netflix, and many more.
However, these benefits have not been brought to the thriving pet industry, which has remained left behind with no Online Central Hub.
Our team is changing this, we launched an online platform two years ago which we called PETspot 1.0, it connected thousands of Australians to Responsible Breeders and Rescues and provided a safe way to adopt/purchase their next Pet Companions!
Thanks to this rapid growth, we are now building new technological solutions that cater for the entire pet lifecycle through an improved Web Platform and Mobile App, called PETspot 2.0. It will utilise the latest technologies to cement PETspot as the #1 online destination for the Australian Pet Industry.
