IBPSA founder, Carmen Rustenbeck, was featured today in a news story on CBS This Morning making this important point: “If you had a child would you just accept a person on an app to take care of your child or would you do more investigation? And that’s what I encourage all pet owners to do.” News anchor Gayle King – just named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People (congratulations) – really liked Carmen’s point. Watch the full news story here on the CBS News website.
During her interview, Carmen did offer tips on how to find a quality pet care provider but, of course, not everything said can make the cut in a news story. For pet owners trying to choose a pet care provider, IBPSA has some guidance here: https://www.ibpsa.com/for-consumers/.
