As a pet owner, you understand the special bond that exists between you and your four-legged companion. Pets are more than just animals, they are cherished members of the family. You prioritize their happiness and well-being, always ensuring they are safe and taken care of. But have you ever considered what would happen to your furry friend if something were to happen to you unexpectedly? Who would know you have a pet at home? Who would provide the same level of care and attention as you? This is where Woof comes in – an app designed to give pet owners peace of mind.
Woof was founded by Arsy Khodabandelou, who is also a pet owner. He lives in the Upper East Side of New York City with his three dogs: Marty, Hank, and Odin. He understands the anxiety and worry that pet owners experience when leaving their pets at home alone, and that is why he created Woof.
This app combines geolocation technology with advanced 24/7 support based in the United States to monitor you and your furry friend. Woof is designed to quickly rescue your pet if something unexpected happens to you, such as a car accident or heart attack. The app has a three-tiered support structure that is automatically activated if your pet’s safety is at risk.
When you sign up for Woof, you will be asked to create a comprehensive pet profile that includes all of your pet’s details, routines, and preferences. This information is essential to ensure that your pet’s well-being can be maintained by any caretaker. With Woof, you can have peace of mind about your pet’s safety, knowing that there is nationwide coverage and 24/7 support available to look after your furry friend.
Woof uses geolocation timers linked to your home address to monitor your and your pet’s safety. You only need to set these timers once, and Woof will remember your preferences. The timers automatically start when you leave home and stop when you return. If the timers expire, that means your pet’s safety may be at risk, and Woof support is automatically alerted.
First, Woof will attempt to contact you, then your emergency contacts, and finally conduct a wellness check at your home to rescue your pet if unable to confirm their safety. Woof Support will contact 911 and request your local police department to perform a wellness check at your home address as a last resort to ensure your pet’s safety.
In addition to monitoring your pet’s safety, Woof has a Pet Passport feature. This feature captures essential information about your pet and shares it with your pet beneficiary or anyone else taking care of your pet. You can instantly send your Pet Passport to anyone who may be temporarily looking after your pet. The Pet Passport is your central hub for storing all information about your pet. Woof’s support team will use this information if needed to maintain your pet’s well-being.
If something unexpected happens to you, Woof will contact your designated pet beneficiary and send them your Pet Passport so that your pet can maintain the same lifestyle that you have created for them. You no longer have to send lengthy instructions to your pet sitters. You can easily text or email your Pet Passport to any pet sitter, ensuring that anyone can care for your pet as well as you do.
Woof is available as an annual or monthly subscription, and there is a 7-day free trial available. It is a small investment that can make a significant difference in ensuring your pet’s safety and well-being. With over 36 million hospitalizations in the United States each year, you never know when you might be involved in an incident and unable to return home to your pet. Woof solves this problem and gives you peace of mind.
