Rover To Sunset DogVacay Brand On June 12th
In the battle of online pet marketplaces Rover and DogVacay, it appears that Seattle-based Rover--at least, the Rover brand--has won. In an email to users and information posted to DogVacay's users, Rover and DogVacay said that they will be redirecting all of DogVacay's users to Rover as of June 12th, and that users on DogVacay must migrate their accounts over to Rover before that date. Ultimately, the two said that DogVacay's site and app will redirect entirely to Rover. The sunset of the DogVacay brand comes almost six months after Rover acquired DogVacay in an all-stock deal. No financial details of that deal have been announced.
