Frequently Asked Questions
MyPetBuddy (MPB) is an online community designed to bring pets and animal lovers together to form real life connections that benefit both our four and two -legged members. MPB is built upon the goal of benefiting pets, pet parents and pet lovers in the UAE by providing a platform for increased socialization, alternative pet care options and part-time companionships. It’s based on the idea of a sharing economy, which thrives on the desire to share time, advice, resources and more for the mutual benefit of the community.
Pet Parent’s profile should consist details of their pets, tell future pet buddies about your dog or cat or even both. Share their liking and display, even if your furry friends just need extra cuddles every now and then. Just follow our user-friendly profile creation to complete your Pawfile and don’t forget to add a picture of your furry friend(s).
As a pet buddy you will create your own profile, tell your future furry buddy and their parent your interest, what you can offer, your experience etc. Just follow our user-friendly profile creation to complete your Pawfile and don’t forget to add a picture.
Absolutely! One of the main reasons we started MPB was for pet parent to have access to trusted pet caregivers for when they’re busy or travelling. So if you don’t own pets or can’t right now but want to spend time with them, MPB is the perfect community for you! Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about what types of animals you connect with most and that you may want as a fur baby in the future.
Yes! You can feel confident that we keep the safety of all our members—both pets and people —as our number one priority. Every member goes through a verification process before they’re given access to the community and able to connect with other members.
The verification process is based on your mobile phone number and identity card. With this information we’re able to verify you and grant you a full-access membership. Please refer our T&C’s page.
