     Founded out of Seattle in 2011, Rover.com lets you sign up as a service-provider or a dog-owner, with a simple online form serving as a means to search for a specific offering, including dog-boarding, house-sitting, and drop-in visits. The company also recently introduced so-called “Rover Cards” to its mobile apps, which lets carers share real-time information with the owners, such as a GPS-powered map of the dog’s walk, photos, and other messages.
   A number of similar companies have sprung up over the years, including Jogs for Dogs and the now defunct Stayhound. But Rover.com is slowly emerging as a pre-eminent brand in the pet-sitting space, and claims 65,000 sitters and dog walkers across the U.S., while boasting that it “tripled” its revenues last year, without providing any real numbers.
   However, Rover.com has now raised around $90 million in funding to date, garnering around $50 million over a number of roundsdating back to 2012. Its latest cash injection will be used to continue “redefining the pet care space through product developments, geographical expansion and continued market growth,” according to a statement. Additionally, the company may pursue mergers and acquisitions.
  “Every once in a while, you have the opportunity to back a category-defining company,” said Venky Ganesan, managing director at Menlo Ventures. “At Menlo we have been fortunate to back companies like Uber, Siri, Hotmail and Gilead Sciences. Rover is on that trajectory and that’s why we decided to double down and go all in on this investment.”
