As lifelong animal lovers and owners ourselves, we understand the importance of finding the perfect companion. And as young tech lovers, we expect technology to deliver the best results as quickly as possible. That’s why we created Leash Yourself, our objectives being to:
|Help people find their new best friend.|
|Save the lives of animals.|
|Donate a significant portion of proceeds to rescues!|
Leash Yourself aims to aggregate the currently unorganized world of pet-related organizations into an easy-to-use, free online platform. We believe that by aggregating all organizations together, we can maximize pet adoptions. Our database provides the user with up-to-date inventory information for organizations offering pets (rescues, shelters & charities), as well as reliable business information for all pet-related services and businesses (the aforementioned, as well as groomers, supply stores, vets, pet sitters, dog walkers, etc.).
Our search results are sorted by distance, instead of rating or popularity. The added ability to filter the results by establishment type (Animal Rescues, Veterinarians, Pet Services, Supply Stores, etc.) and/or services (Adoption, Dog Walking, Pet Sitting, Grooming, Pet Taxi, Open 24/7, etc.) allows the user to quickly find exactly what they are looking for. Furthermore, Leash Yourself allows the user to search within the selected filters with keywords. For example, a user may search for a specific breed of dog to see which animal rescues currently have that dog available for adoption.
Displaying the results as the organizations themselves instead of directly listing the pets available is imperative. We believe that finding your new best friend isn’t as simple as falling in love with a picture. One must interact with that furry friend face-to-face to see if a real connection is indeed present because each pet’s personality is unique! By organizing our database as so, the user will be able to find the nearest organizations that fit their need – allowing them to visit or contact each organization in an efficient matter.
The organizations themselves will gain free exposure and localized search optimization – our goal is to eliminate the uncertainty and inefficiency currently entrenched in the pet and pet service industry, thus maximizing the facilitation of pet adoption, care, and awareness.
