Tinder For Dog-Borrowing Launches To Cure Your Loneliness
Have you ever walked across town and seen a dog walking on the other side of the road and been jealous of the person walking the pupper?
Me too. Looking at other people’s dogs is a legitimate pass time, and I don’t care what anyone else says.
Thankfully, we are not alone in our canine affections, and thanks to a new app, you too could have access to walk all of these Very Good Boys.
The app, Bark’N’Borrow, has been dubbed the Tinder for dog-borrowing, and it allows you to meet up with all kinds of dogs, owners and sitters to fulfil your dreams.
Bark’N’Borrow allows dog owners to pair up with reputable dog walkers to procure their doggie services.
Users are able to swipe to look after or adopt shelter dogs from a handful of different adoption centres, according to Elite Daily.
The app allows users to see whether a dog is available to borrow or adopt, and you can set up a doggy date to spend some time with the best puppers ever.
Liam Berkeley, CEO and founder of Bark’N’Borrow, said recently in a press release:
There are nearly 4 million homeless dogs in shelters across the US who are in desperate need of care and a permanent home.
We’re excited to work with NKLA to bring more attention to their adoptable dogs and to offer our users the ability to meet these incredible animals with the goal of long-term adoptions.
A lot of our users are currently waiting to find the right kind of dog to adopt, and in the meantime are excited to borrow to see which breed suits their lifestyle.
Berkeley came up with the idea when he wanted to rescue a dog, but realised it didn’t work with his living situation.
Users are vetted by an ‘experienced and trustworthy team’ who use a criteria to determine who are the most ‘passionate and genuine’ dog lovers.
Speaking to KTLA, Berkeley said:
We’re making ownership of dogs not as much of a commitment and an easier process and just sharing the love for dogs in general.
