Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC) app allows you to search for adoptable pets right from your iPhone & iPad. As the largest open-door shelter in the Northeast, ACC has 300 to 500+ animals available for adoption on any given day.
This app is perfect for those who are looking for a new companion animal and want the most-up-to date list from which to select their new pet. With social media, text message and e-mail shares built-in, you can help spread the word that these great animals are ready to find their forever homes. You can also choose to be alerted when a pet match is made based on criteria you define, keep a list of “Favorites” to track the pets you like, and stay current with events via the ACC calendar.

The app is very user friendly
It help if the keys in foster write a review so the user can find out more information
It would help if a breed or a breed mix is listed
I adopt and rescue beagles
But the way it is now I would have to look at every dig to see if you had one
Good First Step - Suggested Improvements
1). Create the ability for people to proactively set notification alerts (push, email, text, etc) for breeds they have a stated interest in.
2). Related to the above, enable push notifications (definitely by preselected breed interest, but also other notifications - however other types of notifications should be limited so that people don't delete the app or turn off notifications due to frequency).
3). Create a 'recent adoptables' section within the app that highlights animals that have been added to the app in intervals (24 hours,48 hours,1 week, etc) to give people a reference point so that they don't continually scroll through all available animals (eg all dogs) if they've already evaluated the list. This wouldn't be to discourage people from fully looking through the full list again (everyone shares the same goal of getting these animals adopted), but would create easily identifiable areas where people could look for the latest updates and keep people engaged with the app.
