No Vacancy Reservations & Occupancy Management Software

Big Dog Ventures is developing a completely new software for use in veterinary hospitals, dog kennels, and dog daycare facilities. No Vacancy is a dynamic, system that acts as a real-time auditor for your pet care business. The average pet care business loses $165,000 per year in missed charges and even more in unrealized opportunity. No Vacancy was built utilizing AI, to ensure every dollar is accounted for and every kennel is filled. No Vacancy has partnered with Vetspire Veterinary Practice Management Software for use in veterinary hospitals as well. Big Dog Ventures has spent years building the software that has it all! We are excited to finally be in beta testing. Be sure to sign up for updates!

    Volunteer Projects

    Big Dog Ventures is very active in giving back to the animal community, here in the United States and in Mexico. Over the past decade, Big Dog Ventures has organized several trips to help animal hospitals abroad by bringing medical supplies, medications, books, internet and even veterinarians to provide much needed continuing education and surgical services. A Sea Turtle rescue program was put in place in Mainland Mexico that protects the sea turtle eggs from poachers who believe that they are aphrodesiacs. Please contact us if you would like to participate in one of our trips, have knowledge of an area that needs help, or would like to donate to help animal hospitals and animals in need around the world. We are more than happy to help, and grateful for your participation.
