Brief Explanation

Most people think shelter dogs are damaged and find it difficult visiting shelter homes to adopt. As a result, over 100,000 dogs are needlessly euthanized every year in Australia. We needed people to look at shelter dogs in a new way. Based on the fact that many dog owners look like their dogs, we created ‘Dog-A-Like’ - a phone and Facebook application that finds your perfect Dog-A-Like match from the live PetRescue database, and lets you adopt them when they would otherwise be euthanized. If we can’t bring people to the shelter dogs, we’ll bring the shelter dogs to people.
