Kelly Robinson, a New York entrepreneur, is now creating an e-commerce store for pet goods. Think of Poshmark. Now, Think of Etsy. Think Poshmark meets Etsy, but for pet supplies. In the age of the internet, she wants to make it as easy as possible for people to find what they need from online shops.
“The idea of PSFP came to me when my dog grew out of his puppy products and there wasn’t a dedicated pet consignment platform to sell them on,” shares Kelly. Kelly, the serial entrepreneur that she is, formed the team and the company during the COVID lockdown, when she couldn’t legally show homes in New York.
Kelly couldn’t be the only one whose storage was being filled with toys and supplies that her pup had outgrown. According to the American Pet Products Association, the pet product industry was in excess of $19 billion in 2019 and over $22 billion in 2021 when so many pets were adopted during the pandemic.
Pets outgrow their beds, lightly used toys, collars, and various other items from when they were younger. This platform isn’t just for dogs and cats either. Kelly excitedly shares, “We have products for all types of pets: reptiles, amphibians, horses and beyond!” These items often become either garbage or just end up sitting in storage. As a new store, PAWn Shop for Pets is currently building up its stock of various pet supplies such as:
- Dog beds
- Guinea pig harnesses
- Horse Toys
- And beyond
It’s difficult to find pet owners’ unused or lightly used pet-related items. Many pet owners have these items sitting idly by or being wasted when they could be sold or donated and put to good use. Kelly aims to sell these items, so they don’t go unused and also help other pets in need.
PAWn Shop for Pets‘ mission is to provide a highly effective and efficient online marketplace for the buying, selling, and donating of quality pet supplies. Whether you want to sell your used pet goods or make a donation, PAWn Shop for Pets is the best option on the web.
PAWn Shop for Pets’ goal is to convert the supply of unneeded pet items into an avenue by which they can help other pets in need and the owners who love them. This can save them from going to waste and provide new homes for shelter animals. All proceeds go to animal rescue non-profits across the country to help save more pets. PAWn Shop for Pets’ mission is a win-win situation. In addition to that, the platform also creates an opportunity for owners to bond with other pet lovers.
Helping Pets in Need Today
PAWn Shop for Pets can help reduce animal homelessness by providing an easy way for people to sell or donate their lightly used pet items and help other needy pets. On top of that, A portion of all sales go to help a pet in need.
Many older dogs are abandoned at shelters due to owners not realizing their changing needs and what it takes to look after them properly. Affordable beds, toys, treats, and everyday supplies can go a long way towards rescuing these animals.
With better buying options online, thanks to PAWn Shop for Pets, fewer items will end up sitting idly or being thrown away when they could be used for another animal in need instead.
There are too many animals without homes who could benefit from the donations collected at PAWn Shop for Pets. Connect with PAWn Shop for Pets on Instagram at pawn.shop.for.pets.
There are several things to come from this impact-driven entrepreneur, including the launch of their official site and a start-up having to do with pets and aviation.
