Users can apply filters in order to increase the chance of a match with their future pets. Preferences for breed or age? Have a family with children and/or other pets? Interested in an animal with special care needs, or absolutely not? In addition, a map function reveals the location of the nearest shelters. An update for the app has already been planned; in the newer version, users can complete their own profile and also opt to receive automatic alerts when an animal becomes available that answers to the user’s search criteria.
The app’s launch coincides with the animal protection agency’s Kanjer (crackerjack) campaign, which draws attention to long-term residents of the shelters. One hopes that the app will make it possible for even more animals to find a new home quickly.
