Interested in owning your own pet business? Pets Are Inn offers a wonderful pet franchise opportunity for people looking to be a part of the $75 billion pet industry! Prime locations are available.

The Pets Are Inn concept was founded in 1982 when Harry & Kal Sanders-Greenberg discovered that the family dog Chopin did not do well when boarded in a kennel. After that, they, like most people, boarded Chopin with friends. Even though this was much better than a kennel, they grew uncomfortable always having to impose on friends and relatives. It seemed that they had inadvertently stumbled upon an ideal alternative to kennel boarding. Finding individuals who would be willing and excited to care for their pet as one of their own while their owners traveled.

Thus, Pets Are Inn was born as an alternative for boarding your pet while you are away, with all the comforts of home – without having to depend on your friends or family or a neighbor being available! Pets Are Inn’s sudden success and attendant publicity reinforced what was already known: pet lovers would be quick to patronize a boarding service that delivered personalized care and with lots of love!

The Pet Industry is a growing industry – in 2018 it was recorded at being $72 billion. That number is predicted to be $75 billion in 2019! 68% of U.S. households own a pet – which equates to 84.6 million households. The pet industry has been growing at a steady 4% annually and has been proven to be recession resistant by continuing this rate even through recession years of 2007-2009. More and more people are treating their pets as true members of the family and are willing to spend more on giving them the care they deserve. Read more about the Pet Industry and Market.

Pets Are Inn solves the problem of owner guilt at leaving their pets for an extended period. Meanwhile, franchise owners enjoy making money doing something they love – working with pets and providing a truly wonderful pet care alternative to kennel boarding.
