When our friend Lisa at Dogs ‘N Pawz (DogsnPawz.com) asked us to join her and Rachel at My Kid Has Paws (MyKidHasPaws.org) in promoting a new phone app that benefits animal rescue and shelters, we wanted to help. As it turns out, we get to have fun in the process as well.
Pose A Pet™ app is an app that was created to help you take photos of your pets by using the same sounds, such as squeaks, howls, and quacks, that professional photographers use to get pets’ attention.
Pet photography is so much fun, and this app makes it easier to take great pet photos! Who doesn’t love the classic head tilt? How do you get your dog to do that? Luke responded to every single sound on the phone, and even got excited when he heard the dogs barking sound when I was photographing the other dogs across the room!
How does this benefit shelters and rescues? The creators of Pose A Pet™ are committed to animal rescue. The app can not only help get great photos of pets in need, but it can be made into an adoption flyer for sharing across the internet and on their sister site RescueRevolution.
The basic app is free, but for only $3.00 you can get the premium version. 50% of these proceeds will be shared with rescues and shelters through their 50/50 share plan. The campaign is being kicked off with this blog campaign. Each blogger who shares a post about the app can have the proceeds for their week go to a rescue of their choice. So for this whole week, Monday through Sunday, if you download the premium app proceeds will be shared with my choice of Peace and Paws Dog Rescue, the rescue that we adopted Luke through.
The premium version of this app has 20 total sounds to choose from; plus it has the ability to save photos and flyers to your phone and to share them to social media from there. It is available for Apple or Android. There is a selection of text to choose from for each flyer, which is easy to fill out on your phone. I was happy to see they even have an option for making a lost flyer pet, which could come in very handy for pet families if their pet went missing.
This app will be a great tool for rescues and shelters to be able to get quality photos of pets in need; turn them into an eye catching flyer to share across networks; thereby hopefully leading to more fostering and pet adoption. Better photos lead to more adoptions. According to the ASPCA, approximately 7.6 million animals enter shelters nationwide each year, and 2.7 million of them end up euthanized. Who wouldn’t want to see those numbers decrease?
So you can have fun with this app and help shelter and rescue animals as well. If you’d like to share this with your local shelter you can help them sign up to join the campaign. The infographic below shows you how.
We hope you will download the app this week, have some fun with it, and benefit Peace and Paws Dog Rescue. Some of you may be familiar with them through their Facebook shares of “Giddy & Twinkle’s tip of the day”. If not, you can learn more about them through their website or Facebook page.
