iPhone app wins a People’s Voice Webby award

Tags: , , ,

It’s official: The Petfinder iPhone app has won a People’s Voice Webby award in the category Mobile: Utilities and Services!

The People’s Voice awards are determined by votes from the public, so thank you to all of you who voted and asked your friends to vote. (Thanks especially to IAMS for asking its Facebook fans to vote several times.)

This is the second Webby win for Petfinder and adoptable pets. Petfinder Mobile won a People’s Voice award in the category Mobile: Listings & Updates in 2009. (Read about our 2009 Webby win.)

Petfinder’s app and mobile site really do save lives. Just this weekend a woman at the dog park told me that she’d like to adopt, but didn’t think she could find a Maltese at a shelter. I pulled out my phone and showed her pictures of adoptable Malteses near her. She was surprised, and hopefully she’ll adopt instead of buying a dog now.

We also hear from many people who adopted pets they found using the app — whether they send us Happy Tails or review the app in the iTunes store.

Our mobile tools are just the latest advance in our 15-year mission to use technology to save pets’ lives (since 1996, we’ve facilitated more than 17 million adoptions). And none of it would be possible without supporters like you. Thank you!
