Four veterinary science students at Chulalongkorn University developed a web application to help find new homes for stray animals.

The Thai-language "RightBaan" (Right Home) application "is part of our senior project requirement," said team member Pimrumpa  Kao-ian. "We decided to develop a web application that collects information of homeless animals from different shelters to pass on to those who wish to adopt them."

The app collects information on the history of the animals, such as vaccination, sterilization, as well as their pictures and stories. "We want these animals to have a better quality of life," the team said.

The app has information about cats and dogs at present but will include other animals in the future. A search box, notifications, and alerts will also be added.
