Roadie App Helps Canine Cancer Patients Get to Vet Appointments
You may have heard of Roadie, the super cool on-the-way delivery network that is totally changing the way deliveries are made, and communities are coming together. Now, Roadie has partnered with the National Canine Cancer Foundation (NCCF) to help bring relief to pups with cancer, and to their parents who tirelessly fight to cure them.
A diagnosis of canine cancer devastates a family as they look not only to fund treatment, but to transport their furbaby back and forth from appointments. Roadie wants to help ease the burden on those families and is offering reduced pet transportation prices to those part of the NCCF. Roadie operates in a unique way–connecting people who have stuff (or now pets!) to send with drivers who just so happen to be going in the right direction! Roadie utilizes the more than one billion square feet of extra space passenger vehicles on the road have, and now will use this extra space to help safely transport pets to appointments and such in an affordable manner.
Often times, canine cancer treatment centers are many miles away and pet parents struggle to get the best care for their furry family member simply because of the logistics of transportation. Roadie not only eases that burden, but they’ve also pledged to donate a portion of their proceeds from each pet gig (travel arrangement) worldwide to the NCCF in an effort to help support and raise awareness for canine cancer.
Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in many dog breeds, and the NCCF works tirelessly for canine research. Roadie CEO and founder Marc Gorlin knows that pet owners want to do all they can when their pooch has cancer, but often it’s expensive and difficult. As Roadie was founded on the southern hospitality mentality where neighbors help neighbors, it’s obvious that four-legged friends, especially in need, cannot be left out.
If you’re a pet owner who needs to use Roadie, you can visit their website or download their app, and remember that only verified drivers can offer to drive pets–so you know they’re in good hands. Pet owners can keep in touch with their drivers the entire time.
