Going on a holiday but not sure if your neighbor would be willing to look after your pet yet again? Owners of dogs and cats need not worry about being stuck in this dilemma any longer with Bagong.cn, a Chinese startup that was launched in April 2013, which aims to solve this problem by providing pet owners with a list of pet stores or animal hospitals that offer boarding services.

Available as an app and website, users living in Beijing and Tianjin can simply enter the district they’re living in to pull up a list of available stores or hospitals near them. Each listing displays a collection of photographs of the venue, as well as the price range for boarding on a daily basis.

The pet owners can then indicate the type and size of their pet, which determines the cost per boarding day. Following which, an online reservation and payment is made before the owner drops the pet off at the designated venue. Owners are also required to provide their pets’ immunization records and certification (dogs only) to the venue.
