Published July 10, 2019
TAMPA, Fla. – Essentials PetCare and Get Your Pet, a national peer-to-peer pet adoption website, announced on Wednesday a new partnership to provide enhanced access to safe public meet-up points for individuals looking to re-home or adopt a pet.
Beginning immediately, all Essentials PetCare locations, including three in Texas and one in Florida, have been designated as official community meet-up locations for the Get Your Pet adoption process. An additional six locations are expected to be announced in the coming months as Essentials PetCare continues to open new clinics across the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The clinics, which are conveniently located in select Walmart stores, provide a perfect venue for the Get Your Pet meet ups as well as being a great place to access routine and preventative veterinary care for pets.
“We are proud to partner with Get Your Pet and are excited to support their adoption network by providing safe, reliable and convenient locations for the adoption process to take place,” said Dr. Jill Lopez, director of marketing and strategic partnerships at Essentials PetCare. “We strongly believe our new partnership with Get Your Pet will help more pets find their forever homes.”
Get Your Pet is an online community where people who need to give up their pet can directly connect with people who want to adopt a pet like theirs, making it a simpler, smarter and more humane approach to pet adoption.
“Our new partnership with Essentials PetCare is invaluable because it strengthens our ability to connect pet guardians to those looking to adopt in a safe and convenient environment,” said Angela Marcus, founder of Get Your Pet and a life-long animal welfare advocate. “We believe that this partnership has the ability to greatly increase the flow of adoptions in our community, while having the added value of reliable veterinary care on-hand from the beginning of the adoption process.”
Essentials PetCare offers pet parents an array of veterinary services for both cats and dogs on a walk-in basis, without the need to schedule an appointment. On-site pet care services include routine vaccinations, labwork and minor illness exams. Patients with more serious ailments, like chronic illness, or those in need of emergency care, surgical and specialty procedures, are referred to full-service and specialty veterinary hospitals in the surrounding community.
