About Baxta

Baxta's mission

Baxta’s global platform connects pets, pet owners, and pet-loving communities with each other. Our technology simplifies the world of pet resources, businesses, and services by putting them at the fingertips of our pet community to deliver the best experiences and outcomes every day, all within a safe, pet-friendly environment.

When Chris met Daisy

When Baxta founder Chris Russell met Daisy the Frug in March 2016, it was love at first sight. Like all pet parents, Chris believed Daisy deserved to be lovingly treated and cared for like his own children. He wondered, “What if there was a safe space just for pets and the people who love them? A one-of-a-kind social network where pet-owning experiences, recommendations, pet-related advice, and meaningful connections are created and shared.”
