Founder, Petfinder.com & 911FosterPets.com, CEO Heal House Call Veterinarian Betsy Banks Saul is the co-founder of Petfinder.com, one of the busiest web sites on the Internet. With a vision to change the way the public views shelter pets, Ms. Saul harnessed the infant technology of the Internet in 1996 and molded it into one of the most successful e-businesses to date. Petfinder, which Ms. Saul describes as a “social profit company,” is on a mission to see that no pet is euthanized for lack of a home. In November of 2006, Petfinder.com joined forces with The Discovery Channel, greatly increasing Petfinder.com’s ability to help pets worldwide. In 2013, Petfinder was acquired by Nestlé Purina. Ms. Saul remains on the Board of Petfinder foundation. Her newest venture is HEAL, a house call veterinary franchise.
