Calgary Humane Society app helps find your fur-ever friend

Calgary, Canada – Vertical Motion, the company behind great apps like ShiftMaze and BOMA Calgary announces the release of their app for the Calgary Humane Society (CHS). This is the first animal welfare app available for the iPhone in Canada.

“From the first moment I contacted Vertical Motion to inquire about developing an iPhone app for the Calgary Humane Society they were amazing to work with. The professionalism shown as we worked through the process of developing the app was great,” says Shawn Barrie. “I would easily recommend Jason and his team at Vertical Motion.”

The app will allow the CHS to connect with its community in a new way, and encourage them to adopt, volunteer and support an organization that cares for Calgary’s homeless pets. Every year, the CHS shelters more than 8,000 animals from Calgary and surrounding area. They rely on community support and donations from caring individuals and organizations to keep their operations and programs running.

The app features access to news, events, social media, information about the CHS’ services, and the CHS database of available animals for adoption. In addition, interested donors will be able to make a donation to the CHS from the app. The CHS iPhone application is free to download through the iTunes App Store.
