Adopting a Pet? Adopt the App!

Animal lovers rejoice! The Winnipeg Humane Society (WHS) has launched their official iPhone app.

As Manitoba’s largest and most experienced animal shelter and animal welfare organization, The Winnipeg Humane Society has found a new way to keep us all in the loop. Their new app looks awesome, and offers a variety of useful tools and information.

If you are looking to adopt a pet, the app hooks you up with all of the dogs, cats, and little critters that can be adopted from their various adoption facilities. You can also stay up-to-date with WHS events, or find the nearest off-leash dog park in Winnipeg.

The create-a-postcard function is a sweet little tool that allows you to create a customized postcard that you can share via Email, Facebook, or Twitter. So if you’ve got some birthdays coming up, or want to send your mother something cute for Mother’s Day, you definitely need to check it out.

My personal favorite function of The WHS app is the pet-friendly apartment list. If you are, or have ever had to look for a pet-friendly apartment, you know just how frustrating it can be sifting your way through all the “no pets allowed” ads out there.

In addition to promoting responsible pet ownership, The WHS app offers important contact info for The Pet Loss Support Program, the WHS Help Line, animals in distress, and cruelty/abuse complaints.

The Winnipeg Humane Society App is available through the App Store.
