Jaye Graham, an Economics and Sociology student created a ‘dating’ style app to match rescue animals to new owners. Her idea won a £1,000 investment last year from the Kent Business School.

The app called ‘Pawfect Match’ matches users with rescue animals within a certain distance from their homes, depending on how far they would like to travel. Shelters take photos of the animals, upload them to the platform and within a few moments the animals will appear on the platform.

Similarly to ‘dating’ style apps, you swipe left if you are not interested and right to add the animal to your favourites. You can then send a message to the shelter.

Jaye has started to work with an app development company and aims to have the app ready to download by the summer. See more info here.
