Adopting a pet in China


Are you a dog or a cat person? A pet can add life to a home and make an ideal travel companion during your expatriation in China.

However, formalities or regulations might put you off traveling with your pet making adoption a better option.

Are there any particular rules or procedures for the adoption of an animal in China?

What are the costs associated with adopting a pet in China?

Are there different procedures depending on the animal?

Are pet-sitting options available?

Have you ever adopted a pet in China? Is he or she still with you today?

Thank you in advance for your feedback,


Not recommend to keep a dog in China.
Most of Chinese still thinks  "dog is animal, not family member"
1. They walk dogs without rope. So many dogs lost on the street then caught and sold to Guangdong as food.
2. Low medical degree. Doctors sell drugs and supplement mostly instead of normal treatment
3. 99% Chinese does not clean shit when walking dog. It cause negative impression when others see someone who is walking dogs

Cat is ok since you keep it at home. Dog is not recommend yet if you don't want to see it suffers.
