Adopt the Purrfect Cat Using the Feline Finder App
Every month, Scout sponsors a Pet Entrepreneur Meetup in various cities (Denver, Philadelphia) . One of our Philadelphia Meetup members built a free app, Feline Finder, and we wanted to share it with you. Feline Finder is an app that helps cat lovers adopt the purrfect cat to fit their lifestyle Check it out!
Feline Finder was created by the software engineer, and full-time cat lover, Greg Williams. Shortly after Greg started to work on this pet project, he discovered a way to use the app and help cats in need of being rescued. Overpopulation is a huge problem and leads to the death of too many animals living in shelters. Greg hopes the mobile app can help by finding homes for homeless cats.
Feline Finder is connected electronically to a non-profit called RescueGroups. When animal shelters enter their information into RescueGroups, the app can use the info you enter to narrow the search. Once you log in and fill out the short survey, you have the ability to “favorite” cats you like and keep tabs on their availability. If you find a cat that is a good fit, there are several ways for would-be pet parents to contact the shelters. This includes email address, phone numbers, and other contact information. Are you not quite ready to bring a new pet into your home just yet? You can still get involved with the rescue! Just tap the share button to post adoptable cats to your social media accounts for your fellow cat-centric friends to see.
Right now Greg is trying to get the word out about his app and start helping pets in need. Download his app today and help reduce the population of homeless pets.
