This brilliant new Fourpaws app is like Tinder for rescue dogs and you can download it now.
The Irish application allows users to find and adopt a furry friend in a need of a home. Much like Tinder, the app allows you to like or dislike your way through Irish dogs available for adoption, and as soon as you see your preferred four-legged friend you can apply to adopt them.
Every year 15,559 Irish dogs end up in the pound and 6,338 end up in Rescue Centres. It's at these centres where Fourpaws' pooches in need currently reside.
The Tinder-style app is free to download and provides an online presence for Rescue Centres. The people behind the app work on a volunteer basis, using their own money to cover its running costs.
