Fetch! Pet Care Selected to Join Military Spouse Employment Partnership
Fetch! Pet Care pledges to support military spouses by offering fulfilling work in the pet industry as one of 400 MSEP Partners committed to supporting military families.
Dayton, OH (PRUnderground) November 7th, 2019
Fetch! Pet Care, America’s largest franchise provider of professional pet sitting and dog walking services, has been selected to join the Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP). Fetch! Pet Care was one of 42 new MSEP Partners who joined the initiative at the Department of Defense (DoD) New Partner Induction Ceremony and Partner Meeting in Washington, D.C. titled “The Power of Connection,” on Tuesday, October 22. They plan to formally launch the program within its franchise system on Veterans Day which is Monday, November 11th.
Military spouses have a 24 percent unemployment rate and a 25 percent wage gap compared to their civilian counterparts, according to the Partnership. The inability of spouses to obtain and retain fulfilling employment as they relocate compromises the quality of life of many military families. MSEP was created by the DoD in 2011 in response to a growing readiness issue and has reached a milestone with more than 400 employers as partners.
“We’re honored to be a MSEP Partner,” said Fetch! Pet Care President James Mowery. “Military spouses are an often overlooked and undervalued community, however, they are some of the most loyal, resilient, motivated, and adaptable people you’ll ever have the privilege of working with. As a leader in the pet services industry, Fetch! is very proud to continue our effort in supporting the military and veteran communities.”
With locally-owned franchises serving communities nationwide, Fetch! Pet Care is uniquely positioned to offer military spouses transferrable skills in the pet care services industry. The company offers franchise discounts to military families who want to become Fetch! Pet Care franchisees themselves when they near separation from the Armed Forces. Fetch! franchise owners find this business opportunity to be one of the most exciting and practical home-based, lifestyle businesses around.
