Rover.com, a Seattle, WA-based network of pet sitters and dog walkers, raised $40m in Series E funding.
The round was led by Foundry Group and Menlo Ventures with participation from Madrona Venture Group.
The company, which had already raised $51.5m, intends to use the funds for product developments, geographical expansion, continued market growth and merger and acquisition activity.
Led by Aaron Easterly, CEO, Rover.com connects pet parents with a marketplace of pet sitters and dog walkers. Through Rover, pet parents can discover, book, and manage personalized care for their dogs, including in-home dog boarding, pet sitting, dog walking, and doggy day care.
The platform offers insurance for all services booked through Rover, secure online payments, customer support, vet consultations, and a 24/7 team of experts.
Rover Cards, a new feature, allows pet sitters and dog walkers to track and share information with owners, including when they arrived at the home, a GPS map of the dog’s walk, a personal message from the sitter, photos of the dog while in their care, and notes of any bathroom breaks along the way.
Rover now has over 65,000 sitters and dog walkers throughout the country.
