How the pet club business is growing
A dog breeder and her husband have launched a pet club in New York City, where dogs are being traded for money.
“If you have a puppy or a dog and you’re trying to raise a family, you’ve got to find the right person to take care of it,” said Mary Beth, a pet owner who runs PetSafe, a website that tracks puppy rescues and offers adoption tips.
“The first thing I’m going to do is start a club.
I have a lot of dogs.
So I just need to figure out how to get people to sign up.”
PetSafe has already registered more than 6,000 people as owners of dogs, which it says will enable it to make a profit.
It has raised more than $50,000 so far.
“It’s a pretty new idea, but it’s working,” said PetSafe’s CEO, Mary Beth Boudreau.
‘You don’t have to be wealthy to be a pet lover’ PetSafe is also selling dog-related toys, food and grooming supplies to help people make ends meet. “
You want to start with a couple of dogs and see what they’re good at, then you can build on it and add to it.”

Boudée said the club is open to anyone who wants to join.
“We don’t want to be the ‘we don’t need any money, we have no problems, just want to have a pet’ club,” she said.
“That’s what we want to encourage, and if people are willing to help, then that’s what they should join.”
The PetSafe website says the club has been popular with people who have lost a pet and want to buy their dog back.
“With so many people who are looking for a pet, they don’t necessarily have the money to buy it,” she added.
“They don’t know where to get it.
They don’t even know if they can afford to buy one.”
Boudé said she would like to see more pet-related websites like PetSafe.
“I’d love to see this kind of thing, where people can go to a pet store, and there’s an app on their phone or they can look up their pet on the internet, and then they can get their dog and buy it back for the low price of about $50,” she told Al Jazeera.
“So people can find that person and help them out.”
The club also offers information on pet safety and dog rescues.
The Pet Safe website is owned by Boudette’s husband, and it does not have any revenue.
But, as with many dog rescue sites, it has been growing quickly.
In December, the site was able to sell more than 4,000 puppies.
The number of dogs registered as owners has more than doubled to more than 50,000.
