Two local female entrepreneurs Kyne Lupini and Shannon Sweetman have launched a revolutionary new pet management system that takes pet wellbeing to a whole new level. The Tame app is the app that all pet parents will love.

TAME Pet APP is available in Android and IOS.

TAME allows you to keep track of your pets health, buy products and even adopt! – all from your phone.

As a pet parent I’m always worried that I may forget an important inoculation/ Vaccine or need some advice regrading my fur babies.

Each of my Fur babies has their own profile on TAME.

Harley our rescue cat , rules the house and my husband’s heart (literally if the house was burning down her would save the cat first!) Harley enjoys to sunbath and eat. He lives up to his name with a purr that sounds like a motorbike.

Shumba is our Rhodesian Ridgeback ( but honestly think she is a Kangaroo) . This energetic little lady needs lots of exercise and attention. She loves to run and play with Em.

As a pet parent I want the best for my best friends and this APP helps me keep on top of keeping them healthy and happy.

Usability :

· The App is easy to use and download.

· You can see that a lot of thought has been put into this app to make it as user-friendly as possible.

· The app is beautifully designed.

· There are in app purchases and upgrades that you can buy to unlock more features.

· Handy to have all their medical info in one place ( less paperwork and filing)

· The Shop function can be dangerous to your wallet, with tons of gorgeous products to buy. From bedding to collars and food.

· My favourite function is that you can find Pet Friendly restaurants and accommodation!

This is life changing. As we cant leave Shumba at home alone for long. Now I have a list of Dog friendly accommodation – Family holidays!

Some features on the App:

My Pet

Here you are able to capture everything about your pet, from their name and birthday to their microchip and insurance numbers. You can request pet insurance quotes, add your vet and grooming parlour details and update all medical records, including medication and vaccination dates. The best part about all of this – besides eliminating the need for paperwork and filing and having everything on hand in one place – is that you can share your pet profile at any time.


The list of vetted services – whether you are home or away on holiday with your animals, thanks to geotagging – includes vets, groomers, daycare services, pet sitters, dog walkers and behaviorists. With full contact details provided, you can even message the listed provider directly if they are online. Plus owners can get quotes for inbound and outbound travel for animal travel by simply inputting a few details.


Kyne and Shannon are passionate about supporting local and bringing the entrepreneur to the pet owner. “The amount of quality artisanal brands we have in South Africa is positively astounding and the world needs to see more of them,” says Shannon. You can shop for all your pets’ needs via TAME’S selected shopping partners, including Absolute Pets (for pet care and food products) and Raw Food (retailers/suppliers of raw food) and a bunch of cool local brands, with more being added every day.


Here you can search pet friendly restaurants, accommodation and events according to your location.


A really useful option is the ability to seek advice across categories including medical, grooming, nutrition and training, or talk to a pet professional during working hours. Drawing on experts in the industry, interesting topics are covered each month with the option of videos and downloadable e-books making this an exceptional library of information.

Find Me a Pet

Premium users can also find their new pet here – whether you’re looking for a dog, cat, horse, bunny or parrot. Simply type in what pet and breed you are looking for and it will give you information about the breed and connect you to breed-specific shelters. “Find Me A Pet is our passion project and our way of giving back. We have tried to make the process as easy as possible with our online match assessment which will give the rescue organisation great insight when placing a pet,” says Kyne. Talk

Inspired again by the challenges faced with consultations during lockdown, the Talk functionality allows the user to contact a vet or behaviourist with their concern, share their TAME pet profile and have a ‘live’ appointment via a video call. Alternatively you can share photos for the consultation. The consultation is included in the premium package so there is no extra fee.

Do I use this APP? Yes I do. I think its great as I’m rather forgetful and need to be reminded regrading vaccinations and dental appointments.

I love that there is an adoption portal but this is dangerous for me . If I could I would take in every animal needing a home.

Note: I was given access to the APP as part of a trade exchange agreement.
