SellMyTimeshareNow Says Demand is High for Pet-Friendly Timeshares

SellMyTimeshareNow, a leading timeshare resale and timeshare rental company, says the need is strong for more pet-friendly resorts in the growing vacation ownership industry.

Dover, NH (August 15, 2007) -- SellMyTimeshareNoq calls on the timeshare industry to make a greater number of pet-friendly timeshare units available. A leading timeshare resale and timeshare rental advertising and marketing company, SellMyTimeshareNow believes that many pet owners would become timeshare owners if resort developers designed more timeshare properties with the needs of pets and their owners in mind.

Statistics compiled from the American Pet Products Manufacturers Association 2005-2006 "National Pet Owners Survey" show that there are approximately 73 million dogs owned in the United States, accounting for roughly 39 percent of U.S. households and 90 million cats owned, or about 34 percent of households.

SellMyTimeshareNow works with many vacationers who are interested in taking their pets with them on holiday rather than paying the high cost of boarding one or more pets. Dealing with the anxiety that both the pet and the pet owner feel during the separation shouldn't be part of the family vacation. Jason Tremblay, SellMyTimeshareNow's founder, says, "While we acknowledge that such facilities do exist, we believe that in light of recent stories regarding the timesharing of dogs and alleged mistreatment of animals by sports stars that more needs to be done to cater to pet owners' holiday experiences."

According to research by SellMyTimeshareNow, only 45 resorts in the United States offer a pet-friendly policy or specifically cater to pet owners. Of those resorts, Silverleaf timeshares account for 26 percent of all pet-friendly resorts in the U.S.

SellMyTimeshareNow assists timeshare buyers and renters in finding the vacation property that best fits their needs, including helping people find pet-friendly locations, ensuring that fewer pets are left behind during vacation or travel. Rosanne Luba, Director of Sales, says, "Many of us at SellMyTimeshareNow are also pet owners. We understand how important it is to be able to include your pet in your holiday plans."
