Take Home a Shelter Dog for A Day

While having a discussion over Bulletproof Coffee, Charlie and Cristina Saunders have come up with a great new app to help get shelter dogs adopted. The idea for it was inspired by a shelter that the couple visited in Hawaii, while they were visiting on their honeymoon. The app works by offering lists of dog shelters and their locations for people to look through to find a shelter near them. It also shows the dogs at each shelter that are available for adoption. The owners can visit the shelters and borrow a dog for a day. It benefits the dogs greatly, because they get exercise instead of being stuck in a kennel. Dog walkers are always sorely needed by shelters. The dogs learn important socialization from being taken out by potentially several people. The goal is to hopefully get more dogs adopted this way by having people get a chance to “know” them.
