In my research, I found out, that are many shelters around an area or a country. That means that users and possible fosters parents have to search online by keywords on search engines, to find a shelter that fits their needs and their location of adopting a pet.
Moreover, many shelters provide limited, basic or not organized information and process, for adopting a pet. All users provide basic information in most adoption sites, which ends up to Shelters homes not having clear data and information about the future foster-parent and if they are capable to adopt.
Shelter & Foster Homes
Most sites miss the ability of reviews & ratings from previous users-fosters where they would the chance to share their experience interacting with the shelter or even the pet they adopted. There is not an organized directory list of the available Shelters per area or per country, that provide information & services to future users-fosters people.
A specific library: full of articles, posts, experiences and videos of "How to", when we refer to adopted animals. Specific persons (mostly vets) behind each Shelter who can provide their online help via a chat messaging system made on the application.
A fully functional, informative and totally updated application that enlists all the available shelters per area or per country, who gives attention to its users and provides detailed process and information on how someone can be a pet-foster. Users are requested to provide valuable information on the start, so as to find what they are looking, easier.
At the end of the process, the user has to fill up a quick form so as to book an appointment with the shelter. It's an application that brings together those who want to adopt and those who are responsible for their pets to be adopted. A connection must be made, equally. Below I explain my research steps, design process, and outcome application.
