Tinder for pets helps you give shelter animals forever homes

This new addition to the growing number of Tinder-like apps out there is possibly the cutest one yet – it lets you browse dogs, cats and other animals in shelters looking for their forever home.

The Tinder for pets we’re talking about was developed by adoption website AllPaws, which isn’t new to taking cues from dating services. In fact, the website itself looks more like online dating portals instead of traditional pet adoption haunts on the web. Just like Tinder, you need to swipe left or right to browse through contenders and message a shelter through the app when you find one that tugs at your heartstrings.

The app lists 200,000 adoptable animals at the moment, and while we can all look at dog and cat pics all day, you can also filter them based on breed and on your geographical location to easily find viable candidates. Of course, nobody should ever adopt pets based on looks alone, but apps like this help entice people to go to shelters – many might even end up going home with another dog or cat than the one they originally wanted.

You can now download the AllPaws app from iTunes and finally find someone who’ll love you more than you love him/her.
