Munich Animal Shelter Using a Dating Like App for Cats

An animal shelter in Germany is getting creative to help find new homes for their resident cats and dogs. They’re using new tricks for an old problem.

“Quite simply, it’s a lot of fun and better than boring newspaper ads,” says Jillian Moss with the Munich Animal Shelter. “We thought we’d join the young people and follow the trend on Tinder.”

You won’t find cute kittens or playful puppies here – these are older animals. They still love long walks on the beach but that have a harder time finding new owners.

“We’ve created profiles for 15 potential pets,” says Benjamin Beilke, senior writer for Agency Territory. “It’s important to highlight that many of the animals here are lonely souls.”

The COVID-19 lockdown saw many pandemic puppies adopted, but some are now being abandoned as people go back to work. Many end up at the shelter.

Additionally, some animal shelters in the United States are reporting the number of pets being returned has doubled since COVID restrictions have lifted.

Now, they’ve already got folks swiping right in approval of their new Tinder approach.
