Grab Philippines reintroduces its pet-friendly mobility service GrabPet, providing pet parents with improved access to safe, reliable, and convenient transportation when out and about with their beloved furry, feathery, or even scaly pets.
GrabPet is back!
GrabPet, a specialized on-demand service, is meant to assist travelers in ferrying their dogs to various places such as veterinary clinics, groomers, pet-friendly eateries, and more with the touch of a button. Driver-partners who are GrabPet-ready are prepared to take dogs, cats, turtles, hamsters, rabbits, and fish on rides. This service is currently only offered in certain areas in Metro Manila.
Animal-loving driver-partners with spacious six-seater cars were specifically chosen for the GrabPet fleet and even received extensive training in managing pet-related bookings to guarantee the highest caliber of transportation for GrabPet customers. All GrabPet rides now include additional insurance to guarantee the safety of pets on board.
“As a pet parent myself, I understand how challenging it can be for Filipinos to bring their animal companions to essential services and even leisure trips given the limited transportation options available. As an expression of our dedication to addressing the varying transportation needs of commuters, we have launched GrabPet. It is our firm belief that safe, reliable, and convenient mobility services should be accessible to everyone – even families with winged or four-legged friends,” shares Grab Philippines Chief Operating Officer Ronald Roda.
Working Together for Above-Par, Pet-Friendly Rides
Grab Philippines has implemented a series of guidelines for users of the GrabPet service to protect both the safety and convenience of passengers as well as the immaculate condition of the driver-partners cars.
- Pets should be accompanied by human passengers.
- Pet owners should also refrain from booking rides for pets with parasites and/or fleas
- Pet owners can bring a maximum of two small and medium-sized pets or one large pet per ride, subject to the discretion of the GrabPet Driver-Partner.
- A maximum of four passengers can accompany the pet(s) during the ride.
- Pets are also required to be in diapers and inside carriers.
Roda adds, “We are committed to ensuring that owners and their pets are safely and conveniently transported to their intended destination while also preserving the integrity of the vehicle of our driver-partners. A driver-partner’s vehicle is their means of livelihood, hence by collaborating with us in maintaining high hygiene and safety standards during the GrabPet ride, pet parents help in making sure that our driver-partners can go about their day worry- and hassle-free.”
