PetSmart recently announced that it has acquired AllPaws, a digital platform for pairing people with adoptable pets.
AllPaws allows prospective pet owners to search for pets by a variety of categories including age, breed, energy level, location, and more. By providing prospective pet owners with these filters, AllPaws facilitates better matching between owners and pets which in turn helps to ensure positive outcomes for all involved. The platform is already in use by approximately 5,000 shelter and rescue organizations in North America and, under PetSmart, is expected to expand to include many more.
“We are thrilled to join the PetSmart family and to contribute to its mission of helping save pets’ lives through adoption. When we set out to develop AllPaws, we wanted to take a fresh and modern approach to pet adoption that combines a sophisticated, user-friendly functionality with deep social integration in order to connect prospective adopters with the best pet match possible. With PetSmart’s scale and PetSmart Charities adoption program leveraging more than 1,470 stores that serve as adoption centers, we believe AllPaws has found its forever home with PetSmart.”
— Darrell Lerner, Founder, AllPaws
AllPaws is available via its website or through the Apple App Store.
