 About Roo

Happy vets make for happy pets. 

Roo is on a mission to create a world of increased opportunity, professional empowerment, and improved animal care for animal hospitals and veterinarian professionals.  By connecting hospitals in need with professionals with a new groundbreaking platform, our goal is to optimize hospital talent staffing and improve quality of life for veterinarians, all while giving pets a chance to have access to safe, high-quality care.

Over the next decade, Roo will unlock millions in economic opportunities, improve quality of life for tens of thousands of veterinarians, and facilitate millions of hours of pet care. We've been growing tremendously since launching in early 2019 and now seeing even more traction as we scale up fast, already generating millions in revenue while just scratching the surface. 

We’re also proud to have Floodgate Fund as our lead investor, along with Logan Green (Lyft CEO) and Lyft's fund, AirBnB’s fund, and notable healthcare stakeholders also participating in our exciting journey
