Friends turned business partners Lim, Nga and Lee pool their different professional skills together to elevate pet care services

A common love for pet animals has brought three good friends together to start an online pet service provider. Among its services are pet boarding, pet sitting, dog walking, dog training and even pet taxi, all on a single platform.

Agnez Lim, Joanne Lee and Nga Szu Man left the corporate world to work on providing a platform to help raise the standard of pet care in Malaysia. Since JomPaw (jompaw.com) was launched at the beginning of 2017, it has successfully recruited 100 active caretakers and reached out to 200 customers.

Although a majority of the services are limited to the Klang Valley, it has expanded to Penang, Perak, Negri Sembilan and Johor. But the three co-founders have no plans to rest on their laurels and are ready to expand operations to the rest of the nation.

How JomPaw began was quite accidental; it was inspired by Lim’s golden retriever named Big Boy. When Big Boy died in late 2016, Lim felt the need to fill the void but she wasn’t ready to have another pet.

Since she was in between jobs and needed to earn some income, she decided to pet sit for others.
