Animal lovers finally got the matchmaking app they always wanted. GetPet is a new Tinder-inspired app that aims to connect dogs with their future owners and it might revolutionize the way of adopting pets.
After a person downloads the app, they are presented with photos of the dogs available for adoption alongside key information about them. If they like the dog, the person can swipe right and immediately start the process of adoption. If not, they can swipe left and continue with their search.
When someone initiates the adoption process, they are provided with essential info and tips on pet care as well as a mentor who will help them to form a bond with their new animal friend. The idea of helping and supporting new pet owners is one of the key elements of the app, as it aims to ensure that all adopted dogs are in good hands.
GetPet was designed by a team of volunteers from Lithuania, and managed to reach over 5000 people since being released mid-January. If the concept turns out to be successful, the team might consider adding cats and other animals to the mix.
“For a long time while taking care of homeless animals and helping animal shelters, I could only dream about a modern tool to solve most relevant animal welfare issues in Lithuania. Now I am happy, that it unexpectedly came true, all because of our enthusiastic team, which voluntarily gathered their skills and power to create GetPet project and make it happen.” – said Zaiceva Stalmakova, one of the team members.
