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 Facebook, Twitter, 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.

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.
Literally only downloaded this because your web search stopped working on mobile. Please fix your mobile site so I can delete extraneous app. Also, would be super helpful if your app included animal’s weight as your previous web search did. Thanks!
Far better software out there. This system is okay for searching for pets at the ACC yet is a dinosaur in terms of tools for helping rescues, building a pool of pre-screened adopters and fosters, and rapid information. ACC needs new management and a new software vendor.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
