CONNECTING PEOPLE THROUGH PETS
WHO WE ARE
Offleash’d is a social community that fosters an inclusive bridge connecting pet lovers. We provide a platform to cultivate relationships through shared experiences, knowledge, and resources. Our goal is to spread the joy & well-being that pets inspire.
Our Founder & CIO, Manish Methai, sparked the idea of the company when he met the woman of his dreams who had a puppy she loved more than anything. They truly bonded after she saw how much her puppy loved him. The love that pets inspire is the basis of Offleash’d.
With 8+ years of experience in the tech industry, Manish evolved the concept of human connections through the love of pets into a social app that is meant to foster relationships and friendships. The app’s purpose is to provide an inclusive community to make connections through their shared experiences and love for pets.
In 2020, a locker room chat led to two friends deciding to partner in this business venture together. Combining their diverse yet distinct backgrounds in technology, finance, and business, Methai and CEO, Terry James, set out to revolutionize the concept of Methai's love story, into a product, so that others could share similar experiences through their common love of pets.
During Summer 2021, they introduced Offleash'd to the broader pet community, at SuperZoo Pet Conference, with over 20,000 people in attendance. Emboldened by the feedback received on their new concept, they set out to form a team to help them start building their social community and propel Offleash'd forward to the launch of their app in Summer 2022. Offleash'd recently launched in LA in February 2023.
