Not everyone has the luxury of owning a car and this makes it harder when pet owners wish to bring their pet around. With the demise of Uber Pet service and the rising car prices in Singapore, there seems to be a growing demand for pet transport services. Apart from the occasional vet visits, owners are enrolling their furkids to regular lessons or activities that require a private car to get them to the destinations that are more obscure. To make things worse, we are not as fortunate as the New Yorkers where they are allowed to bring their pets (as long they can fit into a bag) on the subway. Since public trains and buses are not a solution for Singaporean pet owners, here are 6 trusty service providers you can check out for your next ride.
This is the Grab/Uber for pets. The app allows owners to book a ride for their furkid as and when they need one. This on-demand service comes in handy when you have an unexpected situation.
