These applications are becoming quite popular. In an effort to get the word out on some shelter dogs in NYC looking for loving forever homes, a dedicated no kill shelter called Social Tees is using the app to fix people up with their very own furry best mates, and the response is surprising. The app is designed to respond much in the same way as it would to a profile for a human.
You can also tap on the photos to read the dog’s name and the description, as well as share the post to Facebook, or reach out to the shelter directly to arrange a visit. Dogs you like are saved to your Favorites in the app as well, and BarkBuddy then uses that information to start building out a profile of the type of dog you like.
The company says its overall goal here is to build products and provide technology that reaches new audiences and allows the good shelters to succeed. The Bark & Co. team has been playing around with the app internally since quietly launching it earlier this month, and is now ready to roll it out to a wider audience.
BarkBuddy is free to download on iTunes.
