Summer vacations are very close, and they are the perfect excuse to go out and enjoy the outdoors as well as other tourist attractions. However, some pet owners desist from their vacation plans due to the impossibility of taking their furry friends with them.

The good news is that in Mexico City there exist several platforms that offer boarding to dogs, cats, birds, and even plants! They promise to take care of your pets for some hours to even days in comfortable lodgings, away from uncomfortable cages and mistreatment.

Here are three options from the varied offer in the city.

It has more than three thousand caregivers in the most important cities of Mexico. Ignacio Guglielmetti, one of the founders, said in interview that his site focuses on cats and dogs, and specializes in boarding and walks. Those interested enter their address and select the filters of the hosts (who establish a price between MXN$180-300 per night).

“The owner will receive videos and photos during [their pet’s] stay. Each booking has a veterinary coverage, thanks to the release of the service Telemedicina in alliance with Banfield Pet Hospital, to give consultations to the health issues that could exist,” he said.


It contacts pet owners with hosts through their website or through their app, available for IOS and Android. “Those who commit to take care of the animals have a profile in the app that shows their location, the boarding details, their experience, their skills on veterinary first aid or the application of medicines, the species they accept, etcetera. Veterinary guarantee is also offered for up to MXN$15,000,” declared Eduardo Baer, CEO of DogHero.

Also, by downloading their app, you help donate 1kg of food for dogs in street situation. What are you waiting for?


The animal hotel has a safe space in Cancún, where the quadrupeds can drain their energy and socialize. “The nursery (MXN$150 for half a day, $180 for a whole day) opens Monday to Saturday, from 8:00 to 19:30hr, and it includes drinking water, private room with air conditioning, access to all the facilities and custom supervision. The hotel varies in prices” they explain in their site.

They are also an adoption center, so if you are looking for a new furry best friend do not hesitate to contact them!

Are you ready to go on Summer vacation now? Your pets are too!
