Robert: New app matches you with dogs looking for homes
This Valentine’s Day, how about you let someone a little furrier steal your heart?
Animal lovers in Lithuania have created a mobile app similar to popular dating apps like Tinder and Bumble, but instead of matching you with a potential girlfriend or boyfriend, this app let’s users match with dogs in local shelters looking for new owners.
The app, called GetPet, launched last month and is getting hundreds of new users daily and already has made successful matches. The app features profiles of furry four-legged creatures and information about the pup. Those interested swipe right.
For now, the app only features dogs, but the plan is t include cats and other animals in the future.
GetPet is the latest in a growing industry of pet adoption apps. Others include PawsLikeMe and BarkBuddy.
