As COVID-19 sweeps the globe, delivery services are becoming more in demand. Minimizing contact with other people by going to public places less is becoming a social normality. This makes getting everyday commodities like toilet paper and dog food that much more challenging.
As a pet owner, making a run to the pet store isn’t as easy or safe as it used to be. But, our snuggly companions need to eat! With many local pet shops and stores offering curb-side pickup or delivery to your home, there is no need to run to the store and be at risk! For your convenience, we’ve put together a list of our favorite pet supply delivery options.
Why consider home delivery for pet services?
COVID-19 is no joke. Coming into contact with strangers can be catastrophic for those with even the best of immune systems. The importance of home delivery in this time of chaos is vital for shoppers. Making a purchase online for pet food can result in a lesser risk of potentially catching or spreading the virus.
Delivery services, especially those who deliver pet food and supplies, take their jobs seriously. Making sure delivery personnel are wearing masks and have hand sanitizer available to wipe down boxes can give a shopper peace of mind. Furthermore, not coming in contact directly with a cashier, sales assistant or other employee is perfect for those who are looking to stay healthy. The majority of delivery services are offering contact-free delivery so you don’t even need to open the door and sign for anything; your products are placed right at your door.
Ordering pet necessities and having it delivered right to the apartment resident’s door is a perfect way to keep one’s pet healthy and fed. These services can include flea medication, food and toys.
