About this Project:

Our project is designed to keep the abused animals safe and out of harm's way. We started thinking about different problems we see in our community. One of the most passionate topic we decided to dig more into was stray animals that end up on the streets due to lack of responsibilities by the pet parents. We searched up how many animals are abused every year, how many animals are actually rescued after the reports, and what the consequences are for the animal abusers.
The app design started with how to report the animals to the nearby shelters and rescuers. The idea came from the Snapchat by holding a recording button to record. Then it evolved to showcasing the animals that are ready to be adopted, so we can make more rooms for the newly-rescues. We made ways to have people to sign up their accounts, reset the passwords, and visit as a guest. They can make donations by tapping on amount for one time, or tap on a picture to make monthly payment.

As a pet owner, I think this is great. Animal cruelty is way higher than it should ever be. I would consider adding ways for you to report the individuals who abuse animals to the police, like an anonymous report of a crime. Maybe you can also consider some additional care information for those that want to adopt like what supplies they would need etc. Great job!

This is a great idea. I love how you guys are looking for ways to help abused animals and to potentially give them good homes. You have options for donations, monetary and food, is the food something that is shipped or is it bought with a monetary donation? You said you did research on the statistics on abusers and rescuers, maybe you should think about incorporating these facts into your app? Would love to hear about your future plans regarding this app. Nice work team.

Fantastic for a regular basis, ongoing help in a pinch. This could be used often.
