The Winnipeg Humane Society has launched its own smartphone app for iOS devices.
The app was developed by Purple Forge to engage Winnipeg’s pet lovers on the mobile devices being used to most frequently view their pet listings.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, the app’s most engaging feature is the pet postcard, allowing users to create their own adopt-a-pet postcard and send it to their friends using their preferred social media network.
“Like our pets, mobile devices have become our everyday companions,” said Aileen White, director of communications of the WHS. “With the release of the Winnipeg Humane Society iPhone application, we will be able to engage and provide valuable services to our supporters on an anytime, anywhere basis.”
The free app (iTunes) also includes event information, donation pages, latest social media feeds and a comprehensive location-enabled directory of adoption facilities, pet-friendly apartments and off leash dog parks.
