Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) September 05, 2012
Australia-based digital solutions company The Digital Group jumps in on the online pet market with the launch its very own pet-related discount aggregator site, Petbox.
Petbox is a one-stop online shop which brings together the latest and the best deals and specials from all major online and offline pet stores and websites. Petbox allows members to tailor daily deals received via e-mail by selecting pet type and categories of interest. The new pet site also serves as a forum for members to ask questions to a resident veterinarian, search an extensive list of previously answered pet questions as well as pet information, share pet stories and videos, and interact with pet owners from different parts of the world.
Petbox also sponsors the adoption of an abandoned animal one at a time until it has successfully found a home for the featured pet.
According to Petbox resident veterinarian Doctor Rod Sharpin, the new site is unique in that it fills a gap in the marketplace. “Australians just love their pets. In fact, 78% of pet owners spend more time with their pets than they do with their own spouse,” he said. “Petbox will definitely become the new community site for pet owners and pet lovers. They will always find savings on their pet expenses and more importantly, also have a forum to share and enjoy their love of pets,” Sharpin added.
Petbox is just among the several new joint venture sites that The Digital Group is adding to its portfolio. The full-service integrated digital solutions company also manages female oriented shopping portal LetsShop.com; multi-user back end site for boutique winery offerings OzWineDirect.com.au; daily deals, catalogues and online savings aggregator site DealMonkey.com.au; commission-free daily deal site DealFree.com.au; and the HTML newsletter service for real estate, financial planning and mortgage broking, RocketEmail.com.au.
