WI Humane Society iPhone App

For more than 120 years, the Wisconsin Humane Society has sheltered and matched thousands of homeless animals with new families annually. Ascedia was challenged to create an easy-to-use app that would help even more people find their perfect pet via their mobile device. Ascedia created the Wisconsin Humane Society iPhone app, which lets people easily browse through all of the animals available for adoption. The app is fully integrated with the PetPoint (Petfinder) database to provide the most current and accurate data possible, while social features encourage people to share an available pet with their friends and family or bookmark a listing for later. PayPal integration makes it easy for people to donate and support this non-profit organization right from their phones.  

In the first two months following launch, the app was downloaded more than 1,000 times, driving an additional 8,000 visits and more than 100,000 pageviews. And the users are extremely active -- averaging more than 13 pages per app visit!
