(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) CO-FOUNDER OF PET TAXI SERVICE, HEBATALLAH ADEL SOLAIMAN, SAYING:"We wanted to offer this service in Egypt because it was unavailable, and at the same time we want pets to move without restrictions and not carried around in cages. There must be a friendly and loving attitude with pets, so when they see us again next time, they will love us and recognize the people they are leaving with. We also want to ease the hassle of transportation for people."
