It’s an app that is based off of their website petfinder.com. You can view animals in your area and around the country, search animals of a specific breed, gender, or size, and read all about each animal. Petfinder allows you to “favorite” your top cats and dogs so that you may return to them later. You can even share them on social media

LikeThatPets allows you to take a photo of a cat or dog that you like, and, with the help of image recognition technology, it will generate a list of similar pets that are up for adoption. Even if you don’t have a specific animal you love, you can still browse sample pictures to find your perfect match.

Pose a Pet is a cell phone app that allows you to take a digital photo of your pet, create a rescue flyer, and distribute it over social media. The free app features pet photographer-tested noises so that you can be sure to get a winning shot of your cat or dog. Even if you aren’t planning to give a pet up for adoption, this app can still come in handy if you are volunteer at a local animal rescue or animal shelter. Snap a picture and share with friends, family, and colleagues.

BarkBuddy is a free smartphone app that aims to pair humans with their perfect pet. After registering, users complete a survey that tells the app their preferences in a companion animal (size, age, gender, etc). Then, Barkbuddy generates a list of matches located in shelters near you. Swipe right for animals you love, and swipe left to pass. Each animal’s profile has the contact information of the shelter at which they are located, making it easy to meet your new best friend.
