PetsNet aims to create a powerful online community driven resource. A place to chat, meet other members, share information and offer advice and tips on everything pet related.
On a personal level the idea is based on the fact that such a resource would have been invaluable to me personally over the years but in particular when going through some very challenging times dealing with negative pet policies and blanket bans on pets.
We at PAAW House are not going to take all the credit for this idea, we were inspired by MumsNet. We can personally resonate with Justine Roberts story of how MumsNet came about. Her journey started with a family holiday, ours started in our family home! As mentioned earlier we were going through some very challenging times, a three-year court battle ensued, during which time we received dozens of messages via a variety of channels. There were messages from people in similar situations, messages of support and even messages offering advice and help.
I realised at this point that we needed a dedicated platform where people could share stories, support each other and offer advice in the pet world, who better to look to look to for inspiration than the people who had already done it for Mums and Dads. In fact, we were so inspired we wrote to them for tips and advice and they incredibly kindly took time out to respond and wish us luck, nice one MumsNet we’re very grateful.
We hope in time we can create the same support resource for pet parents as MumsNet have provided for all the parents out there.
