What is Host a Pet?
HAP Canada was created from need to have alternative trustworthy and professional options to traditional caged kennels for their pets, when busy, at work, or on vacation. In this era, domestic pets have become an essential part of the family, and their well-being becomes one of the family’s top priorities. Leaving the pets alone at home, or locked in a cage when busy, travelling or at work is not an option anymore. Traditional options offered to pet owners include pensions that use cages and are also quite expensive, and lodging them with friends or family, that are not always available and is often inconvenient.
