Walkzee, a smartphone app for shelter dogs



During a honeymoon to Hawaii Christina and Charlie Saunders, a Couple from San Jose CA, decided to enroll in a program at a local animal rescue that allows people to borrow dogs to join them on outings such walks. This allows dogs time to get out of their cages and socialize with potential adopters. While the Saunders were out and about with Z, one of the local rescue dogs, they came up with a brilliant idea for a smartphone app called Walkzee.

Walkzee, the smartphone app, would allow shelters across the country to list the different dogs while potential dog walkers or adopters can search for dogs based on location. The user would be able to contact the shelter either directly or through the app requesting to take one of their dogs out for part of the day. Afterwards walkers can leave a review about the dog's personality and temperament as well as reviewing the shelter in general. There will even be an option to donate to the rescues and shelters through the Walkzee app. The Saunders couple states that Walkzee will be a 100% free app and will rely on donations and advertising banners for funding.

Unfortunately Walkzee is not yet on available to the public. The Saunders launched a kickstarter campaign to raise the $20,000 required to fund their project and as of March were able to surpass that goal through 494 backers and a total amount of $28,999 in donations. The app is now in beta development with plans on being launched later this year.
