Have you been strolling around one day and found a dog/cat that you would love to adopt? Maybe this particular animal resembles your cherished childhood pet? You wonder where you could find a dog/cat that looks just like this exquisite one! Well you can locate a pet to adopt that appears similar to this one through PetMatch. 
So how does it work exactly? All you have to do is take a photo of the particular dog/cat you like and upload it to the application. PetMatch analyses the image and then searches through a huge database that consists of pets available for adoption in your location. The closest matches (dependent on similarity and distance) is then delivered to you in a matter of seconds. This video below provides more insight into the phenomenal application.
Hopefully this application would make it easier and quicker for people to adopt pets instead of painstakingly checking out numerous shelters. There are many animals out there that require a loving home and we do not see anything wrong with this application helping the process. In saying this, it is important to keep in mind that the look-alike pet you adopt may not have the personality you desire. We suggest to properly interact with the dog/cat first and see if they are a right fit for you and other people in your household. 

Unfortunately this application is not (yet) available for use in Australia. Only people located in the US can utilise it for now. If the application deems popular then hopefully the developers will make this product a more global concept.
