Vote: Is Pet Matching the Next Big Thing?

By Tonka Dobreva 10.01.2017 interact

 

Imagine finding a pet that’s a match made in heaven. This week’s Next Big Thing is on a mission to help you do just that!

Several sites and apps are now using pet-matching algorithms that make it easier for people to choose their perfect pet. One of these sites, AllPaws, is free to use, and it works with local shelters to connect people with rescued pets up for adoption. Paws Like Me is another site that uses a personality assessment quiz and suggests pets based on criteria like activity level and who lives in your household.

The best part? You will not only be able to find your next four-legged best friend, but also make an impact by adopting an animal in need.

We want to know what you think — is pet matching the Next Big Thing? Vote and tell us your opinion in the comments section below. Or submit your video comments to nbt@channelone.com. We will feature the results of the poll and some of your comments on the show!

    I think you guys should do a segment on first ward creative arts academy and you should do ms.dennise’s fifth grade class in the morning because we would like to show you how hard we are working here and we want to talk about our cafeteria the lunch ladies work very hard and we are so grateful for them but back to us we are a arts school and you should come to this class it would be very appreciated.We are in charlotte north carolina.

    I totally think Pet Matching is the NBT. It will help people to find dogs that are right for them. It’s super cool and a very great way to get your best friend.
