Tech Report: App uses artificial intelligence to match people with their perfect pet


SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — This is neat.

You can meet your pet soul mate and rescue an animal from a local shelter.

That is what a new app promises using artificial intelligence and chat bots to match people with their perfect dog or cat.

KRON4’s Tech Reporter Gabe Slate explains how this works.

Watch the above video to see Gabe’s full report.




How it works:

Text Shelter Me to (980) 477-3728 and ShelterPal will respond to your text, asking you:

  • What are your interests?
  • What are you looking for in a pet? Size, age, personality, energy-level etc
  • What is your house/living area like? Small apartment, big backyard, ranch etc.
  • What is your zip code

ShelterPal will then analyze your answers and send you the name and photo of a cat or a dog that is well-suited to you at a nearby shelter, as well as the address and contact details for the shelter.
