Pet Sitters International Celebrates Professional Pet Sitters Week on Facebook

Pet Sitters International (PSI), the professional pet-sitting organization founded by Patti J. Moran in 1994, is celebrating the 20th-annual Professional Pet Sitters Week (PPSW), which is observed March 2-8.

PPSW, which was introduced by PSI in 1995, honors professional pet-care providers, educates the pet-owning public about the advantages of professional in-home pet care and encourages pet-loving entrepreneurs to explore professional pet sitting as a viable career.

“PSI celebrates PPSW to recognize professional pet sitters who work 24/7 to offer the best possible pet-care services,” said Moran, president of PSI.

PSI is encouraging its nearly 7,000 member businesses to celebrate the week with pet-sitter networking events, special offers for clients and local media promotions. PSI will be sharing member success stores and giving away daily prizes on its Facebook page. Through March 20, the association is also offering new members a free copy of the Pet Sitting Service Contract CD when they join PSI.
