Pete Davidson is just a regular guy in the world of pet owners.
But with a knack for raising money and raising dogs on the internet, he’s now one of the most successful dog owners on the market.
Davidson, who lives in Melbourne’s south-east, has had his fair share of online success.
“I’m actually quite surprised how much money I’ve raised through the web,” he said.
Davidson started posting his photos of his pets on a number of online websites, and now the popular PetSafe app is a thing of the past.
“If you want to know what I’ve been doing on the app, just look for the tag ‘pets’,” he said, pointing to his photos on the App Store.
I was looking at this guy in Australia.
It was all about pets.
It’s like the cat that can’t speak English, it doesn’t know the difference between ‘I love you’ and ‘please go away’.
It’s just a lot of love.
So, I’m really happy to see the app is dead, I think it’s great that they’ve taken the dog-care tag off of it and have taken away the pet-care tags that people are looking for.
“Sometimes I don’t even know what to tell people.” “
It’s just so much fun to get requests from people for their pets,” he laughed.
“Sometimes I don’t even know what to tell people.”
Davidson is one of many pet owners looking to get their name out there on the world’s largest online marketplace.
The Australian Dog owner has now raised more than $100,000 through the app to date, which he said was “great”.
“I had this thought, ‘Why don’t I make a few people famous for doing this, and people can give me money back?'” he said with a laugh.
“But then I realised people are going to make money doing it, so why not give it away?”
Davidson has already started putting up his new pets on the platform, and is aiming to raise another $500,000 within a year.
He said that he was looking forward to getting some more dog owners to help him raise the money to get his dogs up and running.
“There’s a couple of different ways people are trying to get in touch with me,” he explained.
“One of them is by email, so I’m trying to do that as well.”
Davidson’s other methods for raising funds are social media and emailing friends.
“I’ve just been sending people a lot more emails than I’ve actually sent to them,” he joked.
Davidson said he’s been surprised at the interest in his business.
“People are going in and asking me questions like, ‘What are you doing?’ or ‘Are you selling any dogs?'”
He said he thought it would be a good way to show the community that he wasn’t a crazy person.
“When I first started, I thought it was just an experiment,” he added.
“Then I realised it was the only way I could raise money, so now I’m making it as good as it can be.”
Davidson said that while he had been on the hunt for new clients, he has already received an offer of about $100 from a woman who has a dog.
“She just said, ‘I’d like to donate my dog to you for a few days so you can raise money for him’,” he explained with a smile.
“That’s so generous and lovely.”
Davidson was initially hesitant to adopt a dog, but decided that he could do it if he had to.
“In the past, I had a few pet owners that didn’t like the idea, but then one of them said to me, ‘You should do it’,” he laughed, “and that’s exactly what I did.”
Davidson will soon be making his way to New Zealand to adopt another dog, a three-year-old terrier mix called Thelma, which is currently on the street.
Davidson said Thelmea will be the first dog he’ll ever give a home.
