I’m going to be straight up and just say, I prioritise my furry friends over anything else. They’re the best cure for a bad day, they know when you’re sad and they’ll just show you unconditional love.
I remember how much having a dog around benefited me more than therapy. Sadly, I’m not allowed pets at home so I just stop and squeal (occasionally cry) when a doggo walks pass me.
Maybe with Singapore start-up, Furpal launching their service connecting dog lovers to owners, I might finally have a chance to be around more bundles of fluff?
This peer-to-peer platform allows people to search for dogs nearby them via location and personality of the dog – you can then arrange a meetup with the pet owner and spend some time with their dog. Founded in 2019, their aim is to reduce abandonment rates through educating dog lovers about the responsibility of ownership before committing to one.
Their comprehensive Furpal guide ensures that dog owners and borrowers know that they should not only be considerate but caring toward the pups that they’re borrowing for the day.
Each dog owner and their pet is also thoroughly screened to ensure that they’re suitable for the Furpal service. The two-way feedback system that is implemented also makes certain that responsibility is maintained from both sides.
If you’re an owner worried about your dog being left alone with the borrower, Furpal’s service doesn’t mean the borrower takes your dog out and about; they’re just coming over for a playdate with you and your pet.
Basically, if you’re just looking for a fuzzy friend to hug at the end of a ruff’ day, as well as make a new acquaintance, Furpal might be right for you.
Not only will you be able to help the dog get used to meeting new people, but you’re also guaranteed to be even happier after your short stint with the fur-baby.
Don’t pass up this oppawtunity for a pawfect playdate and book your Furpal now!
