I’ve put together this pet resource center so that dog owners can easily find helpful services for all of their pet’s needs in one place. My pet resource list includes how to save money on pet supplies, where to look for and hire professional dog care providers, as well as where to find experts online to ask veterinarian questions. I will add to the pet resource center as I explore more great services.
Disclosure: Some of these links are affiliate links, but they are all services I recommend using. I won’t add anything to this list that I have not personally used or verified.
Pet Resource Center
Save Money On Pet Supplies
Ibotta: Ibotta is an app that gives you cash back on your pet purchases at Petco, PetSmart, Amazon and much more. I don’t like scouring the internet for coupons or clipping them the old-fashioned way, so Ibotta is an easy way to always have coupons right at my fingertips. Get $10 just for signing up here.
Amazon Subscribe & Save: Amazon offers a program that’s perfect for pet owners where you can save 15% by subscribing to automatic shipments of 5 items of your choice every 1 to 6 months. This is great for the pet supplies you use most like dog food, dog treats, waste bags, etc. There is no cost to join, and you can skip a shipment or cancel at anytime. I also love that shipping is FREE. Start shopping your Subscribe & Save items here.
Ebates: Ebates is a website and an app that rewards you with cashback for shopping online at your favorite pet retailers (and thousands of other retail stores for that matter!). To earn cashback, you just go to Ebates.com or open the Ebates app on your phone, select your store and shop online as you normally would. It’s that easy.

Dog Care Providers
Trusted House Sitters: Trusted House Sitters is a platform that connects pet owners with trustworthy, verified dog care providers. These sitters are people who want to travel to your area and will care for your pets for free in exchange for accommodation in your home while you’re away. It’s a really simple exchange that can help you keep pet care costs down, and your home safe at the same time when you’re out of town. Learn more about Trusted House Sitters here.
Rover.com: Whether you need overnight pet care services or someone to come let your dog out for a quick potty break, Rover.com is an absolute go-to for finding great dog care providers. Rover’s pet care services include dog boarding, on-demand dog walking, doggy daycare, drop in visits and even house-sitting.
Care.com: Care.com is a great place to find a personal in home pet care provider, dog walker or trainer at a budget you can afford. On Care.com you can post a job, browse through profiles of qualified dog care providers and connect with the ones that meet your needs. I have used this platform in the past to be hired as a sitter and it has worked out fantastically. Join Care.com for free here.
Ask Veterinarian Questions Online
JustAnswer: JustAnswer.com is a paid pet resource that gives you one-on-one access to verified experts where you can ask veterinarian questions online and get answers quickly 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I love the convenience of this service because it saves a trip to the waiting room and costs less too.
