This strategic move into its third state follows Swifto’s presence in New York City and Miami, supported by an initial $2.5M from Benchmark Capital.

The acquisition is crucial for Swifto’s growth, leveraging technology—including GPS tracking and real-time updates—to scale operations while ensuring personalized service.

Wagz ‘n Whiskerz joins brands previously acquired by Swifto in NYC, such as Furkid Co and Barkbud. This acquisition provides Swifto a new footprint in Lake Norman, North Carolina, demonstrating its commitment to expanding.

“After many rewarding years, I am delighted to pass the reins to Swifto, a company that shares our values of care and community. Their technological support combined with our local insight ensures that our clients and their pets will continue receiving top care,” stated Pat Blaney, Owner.
