Zingy's On-Demand, Dog Walking Services Acquired By Rover
Los Angeles-based Zingy, an online, on-demand dog walking service, has been acquired by Rover, according to the companies. Financial terms of the acquisition were not announced, and it's unclear when the actual acquisition occurred. Zingy founder and CEO Tobi Skovron says on his LinkedIn profile that he departed the CEO role in March. Rover has posted details of the acquisition on a web page, but the Zingy website has disappeared. Zingy launched in 2015, offering up a way to find on-demand, dog walking services from a marketplace of independent providers.
