The startup aims to be a one-stop shop that comes bundled with listings for veterinarians, pet supplies, boarding spaces, pet spas, resorts and pet-friendly restaurants
TailsLife, a Bangalore-based startup that aims to be a one-stop shop for all pets-related information, has secured an undisclosed sum in seed funding from a bunch of active investors in India.
With this investment, the company has also announced the commercial launch of the app.
The funds will be used to open an online pet store, where users can buy appetising food for their pets and pick up trendy accessories like leashes and food bowls for them.
“We will also launch a pet outings feature on the app wherein we will connect the owner with pet-friendly resorts and eat-outs. They can also enjoy a quick getaway or even a laid-back vacation with their pet via our app,” said Balaji Ramesh, Co-founder and CEO of TailsLIfe
The startup was launched in November last year by Ramesh and Kanishk Lihala.
TailsLife is a mobile app that has all the information that a pet owner needs. It aims to be a one-stop shop that comes bundled with listings for veterinarians, pet supplies, boarding spaces, pet spas, resorts and restaurants that are pet-friendly.
TailsLife, available on both Android and iOS platforms, is currently working on new features whereby it will offer tailored content specific to the breed and age of the dog/cat by experts, booking of services, interactive forum and vaccination reminders.
“With rising disposable income and pet ownership, India is one of the fastest growing pet markets in the world. What India lacks is an integrated ecosystem where pet owners can get all their needs fulfilled in a common single platform. Being a pet owner myself, I am happy to be invested in TailsLife which provides a unique, unparalleled market place experience for all pet owners,” said V Balakrishnan.
“The petcare space has seen tremendous growth and largely the solutions that a pet parent is looking for is fragmented. Tailslife can a play a significant role and add a lot of value by bringing everything on a single platform to a pet parent such as myself,” said Suresh Kumar, Partner, Encube Ventures Partners.
