Atlanta, GA, October 16, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Yes, its true. Pets can "bring home the bacon" too, with today's launch of PetPloyee.com. This new free job search and community networking website finally makes it possible for pets to pull their own weight. PetPloyee.com empowers pet owners nationwide to search and apply for available jobs on behalf of their pets as well as post resumes for them. Individuals, families, the elderly and agencies that work with animals can connect with pet owners to employ a wide variety of pets as models, companions and more on a voluntary or paid basis.
Any pet, with or without special training, can earn a salary which helps pay for their basic needs such as food and veterinarian care. "This comes at a time when every penny counts," said PetPloyee spokesperson, Michael Delavan. The annual cost of pet ownership can range anywhere from $580 to $875 per year for dogs and about $620 per year for cats. "People impacted by the economy find it increasingly difficult to pay for their pets' needs. Now, there is an easy way for pet owners to connect with fellow animal lovers willing to lend a helping hand."
The family pet is one of the first members of the family to suffer during difficult times. Statistics show that 6 to 8 million dogs and cats are being relinquished to shelters each year. PetPloyee aims to reduce these numbers by allowing pet owners to search for local volunteers willing to offer their furry companion a permanent or temporary foster home.

Animal lovers can search, apply and post job opportunities for people or pets. Members can join discussion groups and learn about different breeds of animals and the jobs they are best suited for.
