PawFect Daily Deals!

A new pet only daily deals website, guaranteed to offer our furry friends (and their masters too) huge daily savings on everything from pet grooming to pet resorts, launched last week, following the huge success of other group buying, daily deal websites.

The point of difference with Pawfect Deals is that it is a pet only site, established by anAustralian vet and veterinary nurses, intent on using their industry knowledge and contactsto save consumers money on pet products and services.Founder and vet Dr Rod Sharpin was constantly hearing his clients express how expensiveanything to do with their pets was, and saw a gap in the market when it came to discountsrelated to our furry, feathery, hairy, and scaly friends.“Australians just love their pets. In fact, 78% of pet owners spend more time with their petsthan they do with their own spouse,” says Rod. “They’re more than happy to spend moneyon their pets, but we wanted to offer pet owners a way of using their collective power toscore some ‘pawfect’ deals for pets.”With discounts ranging from between 40-90%, Dr Sharpin has already had strong interestnationally in the areas of grooming, vet and other health services, vet vaccinations, kennels,catteries, day-care, pet resorts, holidays, pet photography, pet cafes and restaurants, petfood and a huge variety of pet supplies both online and from retail stores.

The daily deals will cater to cats and dogs, but also fish, birds, horses, reptiles, and other small fluffies! Each day, a pawsome deal will be offered to members either nationally, or in each capitalcity. Members can pounce on that deal by clicking on the ‘Buy it now’ button, and once theyhave purr-chased the deal, a voucher will be sent to their inbox.

Like other group buying sites, the deal will only go through if the minimum number of deals are purchased – and make no bones about it, the bigger the community, the greater the savings! Founder Dr Rod Sharpin graduated from Vet Science at the University of Queensland in1996, before working in Bendigo and England. He then purchased the Altona Vet Clinic in2001, where he continues to practice. He has utilised his extensive network of industrycontacts to secure partners nation-wide for his already 10,000 Pawfect Deals members.
