the nation’s largest network of dog sitters and dog walkers, today
announced that for everyone who books a stay over the holidays, Rover
and its Sit a Dog, Save a Life program will donate $1 to Pet

“Rover exists so that everyone can experience the joy of having a dog in
their life, and Pet Partners’ therapy animals make more than a million
visits to people in need each year,” said Brent Turner, Rover’s chief
