Forget Online Dating - Find Love With ShelterPal



Dating apps not quite cutting it these days?  Why not upgrade your companion search with an app that matches you with a shelter pet in minutes! 

Just in time for National Pet Month, Twilio has come up with an easy way to find your perfect pet - an intelligent chatbot called ShelterPal.

According to the ASPCA, there are approximately 6.5 million cats and dogs in shelters across the U.S. But with just a few texts, you could find your new bff from your local shelter. (Read how below.)

In addition, for each text, Twilio will donate $1 to the ASPCA, up to $10,000 to support their life-saving work across the country.  Yay!!


How it works:

Text "Shelter Me" to (980) 477-3728 and ShelterPal will respond to your text, asking you:

  • What are your interests?

  • What are you looking for in a pet? Size, age, personality, energy-level etc

  • What is your house/living area like? Small apartment, big backyard, ranch etc.

  • What is your zip code

ShelterPal will then analyze your answers and send a message back to you with the name and photo of a cat or a dog that is well-suited to you at a nearby shelter, as well as the address and contact details for the shelter.



Thank you Twilio for making this happen!
