Lola

INSIGHT

There’s a mistaken perception in Texas that rescue animals are somehow inferior or inherently neglected. There’s also lack of information about the responsibilities and commitments that a future dog owner needs to have in order to adopt and keep a dog for life.

IDEA

We created an A.I. pet to be the voice for all shelter dogs looking for a home. A virtual pet that would ensure that those interested in adopting a new pet are up to the task. Our A.I. mutt will try to make the future family fall in love with the idea of adoption while ensuring that they’re prepared to bring one home. Meanwhile, Lola will spontaneously match them with shelter dogs from Dallas Pets Alive.

IMPACT

The user per session engagement time was 5 minutes on average with the bot.
The project was featured in important tech publications like PSFK, Mashable, Trend Hunter and Yahoo Tech.
