TREAT - APPLY NOW

Treat is a platform for virtual adoption of real shelter pets. Treat supports shelters in the following aspects:

1. Direct support - Treat users support their shelter pets in 3 main areas: food bags, medical treatment and kennel maintenance.

2. More adoptions - Treat users are being incentivized on the platform to promote their pets to get adopted, and also they can adopt the pet by themselves. 

3. Volunteering - Treat users are being incentivized on the platform to volunteer in the shelter.

No integration is needed. 

"Treat covers most of our dog food supplies, with almost zero effort on our side"
