Business and Commerce
Stimulate brick & mortar businesses
Cities have the ability to increase accessibility to retail and hospitality businesses, by allowing pet safety stations on public property so long as these don't obstruct pedestrians and access to wheelchairs.
Such accommodations can make a huge difference for businesses that provide convenience and rely on local consumption while facing intense competition and rising costs.
Health and Well-being
Protect the needs of all constituents
While domestic animals have been shown to contribute to the physical and emotional well-being of pet owners, their increasing presence within society creates challenges for health protection authorities.
Both regulators and enforcement organizations need to adapt to this phenomenon while ensuring the personal rights and safety of all members of the public are protected without compromising on public health.
Our stations provide a balanced solution to satisfy the needs and constraints of all citizens, service providers and authorities.
Environment and Mobility
Promote walking over motor vehicle use
Investments in cycling, vehicle-sharing and micro-mobility infrastructure and programs have already shown results in reducing society's reliance on cars and helping local governments meet their traffic and emission goals faster.
Similar to how cycling is encouraged, accessibility to pet safety stations at businesses and public venues provide pet owners the flexibility to combine shopping and errands into their daily routines.
Public Safety and Enforcement
Reduce the strain on public servants
Thanks to increased dog ownership, people can be witnessed walking city streets at all times of day, effectively providing more vigilance against property and other types of crime.
At the same time we are experiencing more occurrences of distressed pets left unattended in vehicles or tethered outside businesses, resulting in various incidents and calls for intervention.
PetParker stations provide safe and comfortable pet enclosures that mitigate such situations and reduce the need to dispatch bylaw enforcement or first responders.
