In America, we LOVE our pets.  

The pet industry as a whole is a $70 BILLION a year industry.   $5.7 BILLION of that is an industry focused solely on pet sitting/ boarding/ walking.

Rover.com is at the forefront of that industry. They've created a peer-to-peer marketplace offering up a variety of services pet lovers need.  

The idea for it all started at a 2011 'Startup Weekend' in Seattle and a conversation between a college student and a venture capitalist about a dog named Ruby.  

Six years later, the company is valued at more than $300 million.
