An app that allows your local animal adoption agency to create profiles for the available animals which can then be matched with people looking to adopt. There could be a couple of benefits to approaching adoption in this way.
1- You can get to know the animal before adopting them. Often, people walk into a rescue centre and spend like half an hour with the animals before picking one. With this app, the agency can write a comprehensive bio for the animal, paired with photos and videos. This will allow you to really see what the animal's personality is like by following them for a while, ensuring that you get the best match for you.
2- It can be easier for adoption companies to screen people. Humans will also have to set up a profile to use the app, when doing so, they can answer questions about their living conditions, like whether they have other pets, if they have a yard, if they have small children or if they have taken care of a pet before. Adoption agencies can then filter potential matches using these answers to make sure that the animals go to the best possible homes.
3- It could cast a wider net for adoption. If people are willing to travel to collect their pet, they could look at different available animals from all across the nation. This means that places with more homeless animals than people who are looking to get a pet might benefit from getting someone from further away who might not be able to find what they are looking for in their area.
There would obviously be ways to monetize this, either through a paid subscription, taking a percentage of the adoption fee or even simply add revenue, but that's not really the goal of this idea.
The idea is meant to match people with the perfect pets so that they can provide them with loving homes.
