The purpose of the letsps pet-centric community platform is to educate potential pet parents and inspire pet lovers with an inclusive space where they can discuss the struggles, joys and frustrations of being a caretaker for their precious pets.
This website is also intended to be a forum where participants can ask the online pet community questions about pet care, health or related topics. These questions can then be managed by letsps employees and responded to by pet professionals and/or other community members.
The objective is to bring pet lovers together to find solutions to commonly asked questions and share stories about their beloved pets.
