A community of trusted pet owners caring for each other's pets

PetSwapp creates a community of trusted pet owners, connecting them to take care of each other’s pets when needed – to pet swap.

What is PetSwapp?

You have planned a trip, the tickets are bought, the Airbnb is booked and the whole crew is ready to go… except someone – your beloved pet!

PetSwapp creates a community of pet owners, connecting them to take care of each other’s pets when needed – to pet swap.

We provide an efficient and safe alternative to expensive and/or unsafe pet caring practices.

How it works?

1
Search for other pet owners in your area
2
Meet up and leave your pet with a trusted host family
3
Take care of a pet from the community

What are treats?

We introduced points (treats) as a way to incentivize members to host pets. Each Swap is valued by its length:

1 night stay = 10 treats
Same Day stay = 7 treats

For example: if you do a 1 night stay with another member, you would be transferring 10 treats to them.

We are giving everyone 30 free treats to start. Once you run out, you can always earn more by hosting!

The PetSwapp Experience

Hosting other pups whenever we can is so fun! Rodger gets to have new buddies to play with, and I get to help a new friend out. This is such a good concept, I wish it had come out earlier!

Wow! I had a last minute trip, and the PetSwapp team was incredible in helping me find someone to look after Po for 10 days. The host was awesome and her dog has since stayed with Po and I!

Felix and I really enjoyed the PetSwapp experience. We were a bit worried about trust at the beginning, but as soon as I met Felix's host all of that went out the window!

Trust & Safety

We are building a community based on safety, trust and love. No one is part of PetSwapp to make a profit out of it. We are all pet owners and lovers looking to help eachother out.

Every member goes through a screening process before being accepted. In a future stage we will implement background checks, ID checks, and more!

Currently in LA

What better place than LA to launch PetSwapp! Finding someone to care for our pets should be as smooth as possible, that’s why we’re only launching in select areas, so that it’ll be easier to meet new friends nearby!

Once we have enough members in LA, we will launch other large cities. If you’d like us to launch in your area, contact us and let us know!

We’re in BETA!

We’re in our beta test phase, which means you may encounter some bugs, or may have suggestions for us.

Any feedback is very welcome - we want PetSwapp to be the best pet community out there, and we'd love you to be a part in shaping it! Just email us at arianna@petswapp.com.

For the best experience, we recommend that you update the app regularly. It's super easy: just close the app completely, and reopen it.

Thanks for joining and for helping us test,
Arianna and Klavs, Co-Founders

About Us

Arianna was born in Rome, Italy and raised by a Mexican family. She moved to Los Angeles after graduating high school. She has a background in marketing, but her life changed after she adopted her 2 dogs, Kiwi and Mango, who are the inspiration behind PetSwapp. She finds humans and animals to be fascinating, and has always loved bringing people together.

Arianna Jacchia
Co-Founder & CEO

Klavs has always been into tech, as well as travelling the world. His dog, Rodger, doesn't get to travel as much, and it’s always been an issue finding someone to take good care of him. When Arianna first told Klavs about the idea of PetSwapp, he was immediately on board, and eager to finally solve a problem he's had for so long!

Frequently Asked Questions

If you know a PetSwapp member, ask them to vouch for you by sending you a referral text!

You can also join our waitlist, which we continually review.

Trust is at the base of what makes the PetSwapp community so special, and referrals by existing members play a key role in making this possible.

As an existing member, you’ll earn extra Treats each time you refer someone and they complete their profile!

We introduced points (treats) as a way to incentivize members to host pets. Each Swap is valued by its length:

1 night stay = 10 points
Same Day stay = 5 points

Safety and trust between members are our top priority. We screen all pet parents before their profile is activated, and everyone is held to the highest standards. We do recommend having a meet and greet with other members before doing a Swap, to make sure that there’s a good connection between both the humans and the pets.

As of now, we are inviting dogs and cats, but we plan on including more species soon!

During our beta stage, PetSwapp is 100% free. Our plan for the future is to have a free version, and complement it with a premium membership.

You can download PetSwapp on your iPhone through the AppStore. We will soon launch on GooglePlay for Android. Join Android waitlist!
