BabelBark Creates Community For Pet Owners, Veterinarians & Businesses

Technology is an integrated facet of the digital era of humanity. Even being a pet owner might mean using technology that benefits you and your furry friends. For one company, they combined personal concerns with innovative solutions to give pet parents and their communities a peace of mind knowing their pets are safe and loved. BabelBark is an excellent representation of how technology and software blends into being a pet owner.

The company was started by two software engineering pals who created a solution to a problem. Roy Stein and Bill Rebozo simply wanted to take a vacation, but were worried about their fur babies while away. As tech detectives, they did what any software guy would do -- they engineered an app that allowed them to check on their pets while they are away. They were able to keep in contact with the pet sitter and stay worry-free while away.

As the popularity of the app increased, the duo decided to make it available to all consumers. With the recent official launch, they also added other facets of the business that can help foster an online pet community dedicated to the safety and wellbeing of all pets.

"Each pet has unique needs. Whether you have a young dog that craves activity or an older dog with medical conditions, BabelBark provides the support you need to manage their happy and healthy lives. We designed BabelBark as a "multi-tool" capable of supporting any combination of people and pets. BabelBark also supports cats!" -Rebozo

BabelBark helps to connect pet sitters and pet owners. Finding a pet sitter isn't always the easiest task. Trusting someone with your pet is a lot of trust to put into one person. But with BabelBark, they make it easy. To further the care a pet receives, the company created another extension called BabelVet which connects veterinarians and clinics with local pet owners. Picking out a vet can be just as hard as finding a primary care doctor. Vet clinics are eager to work alongside BabelVet and care for new furry friends. To fully integrate the pet community, the company offers BizBark, which showcases local businesses within the pet community that can benefit and provide the added extras that comes with being a pet owner.

"There's never been a better way to link everybody in a pet's life. BabelBark is the only digital platform that brings everyone in a pet's life together, because BabelBark links to BizBark for pet businesses + shelters and BabelVet for veterinary hospitals + clinics. So, everyone's on the same page when it comes to care because everyone's viewing the same profile." - Stein

The success of BabelBark comes for a few reasons.

First, the company is the first and only horizontal PeTech platform, which gives it substantial competitive industry advantage.

Secondly, generational changes induce shifts in consumer behavior. With the current millennial purchasing behaviors and lifestyle, they are deciding to delay having children and getting married, but in replace of that, they are choosing to adopt pets. Because they don't have the responsibility of financially caring for a child, they are making sure their pet has luxury items. Most pets are living their best life with millennial parents.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
