Apps to Adoption: How Wireless Helps Pets Find Homes


Riley Davis

Are you looking for your fur-ever friend? Whether you are more of a cat or dog person, there is an app to help you out! Wireless can help place shelter animals in loving homes.

That’s right, wireless connects more than people. It can also connect you to your future pet. Mobile networks have revolutionized the way location services work, and now those services extend to the pet and pet care industry.

According to a study, the internet has revolutionized dog and cat adoptions worldwide. In some shelters, the average stay is dramatically shortened for our feline and canine friends, thanks to the aid of mobile media platforms like Facebook and Instagram.

Adoption websites have also gone mobile, with many offering apps that allow you to search pets based on criteria like breed, age, distance, time spent in shelter, etc.

And wireless enables more than just adoption services, it allows you to track your pet.

New GPS-enabled collars and tags let dog and cat owners track their pet’s location via SMS services or via in-app services, if they ever get loose.

New apps emerge every day to help care for pets too, from dog walking and pet sitting apps to mobile grooming services.

And still others remind you when to medicate your pet, track your pet’s fitness, find pet-friendly neighbor haunts, and more.

Mobile doesn’t just make your life better, it makes your furry friend’s life better too. And at the end of the day, isn’t that what matters most?
