Americans love their pets. Turns out, two out of every three American homes include a pet, and 95 percent of households consider their pets to be family members.
But where do those pet parents turn to when they need help? How do you know if your pet is getting the proper nutrition? We wanted to provide a resource for overwhelmed pet owners and created WellPets.
Paws for thought: WellPets
We are a group of pet-loving student entrepreneurs from Roslyn High School, located on Long Island, 20 miles from New York City, and are the creators of WellPets.
We developed the business as part of a youth entrepreneurship program at our school called INCubatoredu. It gives students the opportunity to work with mentors to create their own start-up businesses while getting a taste of the real world. At the end of the course, students “pitch” their ideas to a group of local community professionals and entrepreneurs for a chance to win funding and continue their work.
From grooming to nutrition—WellPets is an app to assist pet owners in keeping track of their pet’s health information. All you have to do is enter their breed and size. The app provides the proper nutrition plan for your pet. Notification features remind owners of grooming needs or a trip to the vet. The app will also give users the option to shop for pet products and compare prices for those products.
