)-- Lisa Halstead, Executive Director of GreaterGood.org, announced today that The Animal Rescue Site and GreaterGood.org have been selected as Preferred Partners of Rover.com’s Sit a Dog, Save a Life [tm] program.
Sit a Dog, Save a Life™ enables participating Rover.com sitters, who can be identified by a badge on their Rover.com profile, to donate all or a portion of their pet-sitting proceeds to a pet-related charity.
“Creating innovative, easy-to-do actions to help rescued animals online is what we’ve been doing for the past decade,” said Halstead. “This is a great idea and a wonderful way for Rover.com to support rescued dogs.”
Rover.com helps consumers find local dog sitters as an affordable, cage-free alternative to traditional kennels. Started in Seattle, WA, in 2011, Rover.com is already established in more than 800 cities.
“We are excited to welcome GreaterGood.org into the Sit a Dog, Save a Life™ program. Our shared passion for the welfare of dogs makes this a perfect match," said Aaron Easterly, CEO of Rover.com.
