Founder, CEO Pet Pros ServicesMark Garvin, CEO, Jack of all Trades

While working as a business consultant for a major consulting firm, and having to travel extensively, Mark made the difficult decision to find his rare bred 195 lbs Tosa Inu, Somo, a new home. He started advertising online, in newspapers, etc. to make sure he found the right family to take in his pup. After exhausting all efforts, and realizing that there were probably other people just like him who needed to re-home their pet without utilizing the local shelters, a light bulb went off. Within days of doing extensive research, he found out there were few websites that aided people in re-homing pets, especially large rare breeds like Somo. He immediately began work on developing such a site and within a few months, Pet Pros Services was born in Mark’s small apartment in Orlando, Florida.

After the perfect home was found for Somo through the very site he created, Mark decided to leave his 6 figure Consulting career (against the advice of his friends and family) and dedicated his life to Pet Pros. Being a true entrepreneur who believed in his business with lots of drive, ambition, focus, and a never say die attitude. Mark knew his new venture would be a successful and rewarding one.

Mark started Pet Pros in California online and then expanded to Texas and other major states. Pet owners from all 50 states were calling to sign up for the Re-homing services. Based on his customers desires, needs and wants that they expressed, he later added Pet Taxi, Pet Maids and other Pet Services. He decided to take this same concept and start Home Health care services for pets nationwide.

Mark received his MBA in Finance and Accounting from the University of Michigan Ross Business School and currently runs Pet Pros Services and Genesis Home Health Care, dedicated to Nursing, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Aides. On his spare time, as a fun hobby, Mark is a licensed Business Broker and enjoys helping business owners buy and sell their pet and healthcare businesses. Mark does Mergers and Acquisitions for large and corporate pet and healthcare companies for enjoyment. He lives in Orlando, Florida with his family.
