New ‘eHarmony for Pets’ Wants to Hook You Up with Your Adoptable Dog Soulmate

A new pet matchmaking service promises to match potential adopters with their furry soulmates using an algorithm that purportedly has a more than 90% accuracy rate in predicting pet compatibility.
PawsLikeMe first gives adopters a short personality assessment quiz that focuses on energy, focus, confidence and independence but also considers personality, lifestyle and home environment. A summary of the user’s ideal dog is then given along with a list of adoptable dogs deemed most compatible for that person.
Compatible dogs can be further narrowed down according to size, age and breed.
Elizabeth Holmes, the CEO and co-founder of PawsLikeMe, said in a press release:
“70% of pets are re-homed more than once in their lifetime. Our genuine hope is that by providing a better way of matching pets with their new families, we can change that and find them not just a home, but the right home. My co-founders are a veterinary animal behaviorist and a social worker with a psychology specialization. They combined their skillsets to develop our proprietary personality assessment.”
The company’s advisory team includes entrepreneur Sean Black, a co-founder of real estate site Trulia.
“PawsLikeMe is bringing to the pet industry what we at Trulia, brought to the real estate industry,” said Black.
