Before Uber and Lfyt, there was this method of transportation called a taxi cab and calling one in order to be able to take a pet somewhere was a nightmare. Individual drivers’ reluctance to transport pets still exists. Here’s some good news for pet owners: Instapet is a pet-friendly cab service that will provide urgent transport and concierge for four-legged pals, with TLC drivers whose cars are comfort kennel- enabled.
Targeted at “wealthy pet parents,” Instapet will eventually offer their services for strays and other animals, and non-profit causes. Their long-term plans are to save millions of pets lives over the course of 50 years. The app is set to premiere in a week.
