GoPetie allows members to exchange pet sitting and pet walking for FREE. If a member wishes to offer to do pet sitting and pet walking he/she can simply activate these services under “Pet Services” on the main menu. When you activate these features, the corresponding icons on your profile will be in blue and members looking for the services will be able to send you a request.
The request will have the date, time and a message with the details. You will also be able to see the profile of the member requesting the service and chat on the app before deciding to accept or deny the request. Please note that members offering the service can accept or deny the requests as they wish. GoPetie does not charge any fees and we encourage members to do the same. Tips are OKAY, but don’t ask for them. Members can activate or deactivate the pet services feature at any time.

We recommend that the user should be over 16 years old to use the services. If you are under 16 years old and wish to register on GoPetie mobile community, we recommend asking your parents or legal guardian's permission. We encourage families to register their children & pets in one single profile/account so they can enjoy GoPetie together with the supervision of parents or legal guardians.
Currently we allow the registration of up to two pets. After registering the first pet, the pet owner can add another pet and the pet’s profiles will be under the “pets” tab on your profile view. Other users will be able to see how many pets you have registered on the profile view.
Why only two pets?
We understand that some pet owners have more than one pet and soon we will allow our members to add more pets on the app. Please follow us on our social media for updates on our features.
There are two types of QR code on the GoPetie app. The one located on each pet’s profile is the pet’s unique ID and it carries its complete information and ownership. The QR code located on the main menu is your profile’s unique CODE. Other members can simply scan the CODE to find and connect with you on the GoPetie app. The CODE is also your passport to participate in events and promotions promoted by GoPetie and its partners.
We only share some basic information such as country, state, city, username and profile pictures so other members can connect with you. The information that is described as confidential on your profile will not be shared with other members. GoPetie app may randomly check profiles and verify information of members to prove their accuracy. Members are solely responsible for all the information entered and shared on the GoPetie platform.
Ask the representative to complete the two-step registration process and after uploading the necessary information our team will verify and approve the account. After approved, shelters can create profiles for each pet available for adoption and fostering and promote their pets on the mobile app. Promoted pets will be shown on the News Feed to all members located in proximity to the shelter. Members can see the promoted pets, share and invite other friends to look at the profiles through the GoPetie app, Facebook and Twitter. Members interested in adopting or fostering pets can reach out to the shelter directly from the GoPetie app. Pets available for adoption are also listed when users are looking for adoption.
