It’s Like Tinder, But For Dogs

June 3, 2014 | Sophie Weiner

From the creators of the dog treat box subscription service BarkBox, here comes BarkBuddy, described by co-founder Hendrik Werdelin as “Tinder for dogs.” It’s a cute comparison, but unlike Tinder, only one side of the connection gets to make a decision, and also unlike Tinder, it might actually make people happy. BarkBuddy has invited shelters around the country to post photos for their dogs and cats. App users only see pets in their area, all single and ready to play, like, fetch or something.

“Location-based tracking finds dogs in your area, and a bunch of different dogs, looking for love, come on screen,” Werdelin told TIME. The app even narrows down your pet selections based on which kind of pets you tend to swipe right on. In its first four days, the app has assisted in the adoption of 6 dogs and 35 cats.

But what if the pets could swipe back? Cats would never swipe right.
