Truckstop introduces pet verification badge amid Take Your Pet to Work week – Truck News

According to Truckstop’s recent survey of more than 450 of its carrier customers, 66% are pet owners, and more than one-third have modified their trucks to accommodate their pets. More than 40% of carriers who own pets like to travel with them – of those, 86% travel with their dog.

In honor of Take Your Pet to Work Week, Truckstop has launched its new service — a pet verification badge — as its survey revealed that 53% of carrier pet owners believe it’s important to confirm the credentials of pet services, like groomers or walkers, before using them.

This week, transportation professionals can have their furry or feathery friends ‘verified’ by Truckstop and show off their badges for a good cause.

For each image shared on social media, Truckstop will donate $20 to a pet charity, up to $500, the company announced in a news release.

“The long hours on the road can be tough, but having my dogs with me changes everything. They aren’t just pets; they’re my companions and co-pilots,” said Truckstop customer and owner-operator Sam Bissonnette in a release. He takes his two Belgian shepherds, Denver and Dallas, on the road with him. 

“Their unwavering loyalty and companionship keep me motivated and give me a sense of home while I travel. I can’t imagine life on the road without them by my side.”
