The story so far

Founded in 2011, by Aaron Easterly (CEO) Rover.com is the world's largest network of 5-star pet sitters and dog walkers. Founded on the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the unconditional love of a dog (or cat!), Rover improves and simplifies life for pet parents and the pets they love. Rover gives pet parents peace of mind whenever they’re away from their furry family members by offering 24/7 support, reservation protection, the Rover Guarantee, background checks, vet consultations, GPS walk tracking, and the nation’s #1 pet sitting and dog walking app. And with The Dog People—one of the nation’s top dog blogs—Rover reaches millions of readers with tips and articles that delight, inform, and enhance the bond between people and their pets. In 2019, Rover was named Next Text Titan by Geekwire. Rover is also regularly featured amongst the best workplaces by the Puget Sound Business Journal, and were named one of Seattle Magazine's “100 Best Companies to Work For.” They are a media darling, featured in Forbes, USA Today, ABC News, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Mashable, CNN, and The Huffington Post. OMERS Ventures invested in Rover in 2014.
