The Petsy Service

We agree to provide you with the Petsy Service. The Service includes all of the Petsy products, features, applications, services, technologies, and software that we provide to advance Petsy's mission: To bring pet owners closer to their beloved pets.

The Service is made up of the following aspects:

You can create profiles for your pets, connect with other pet owners, trainers, and pet lovers, and share precious moments with your furry friends.
