Saving animals is hard. Doobert.com is trying to make it simpler for animal rescue organizations to do what they do best...save animals.
According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 million to 7 million companion animals enter animal shelters in the U.S. every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. Thankfully there are thousands of animal rescue organizations in the U.S. and around the world with dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly to save and place as many animals as possible. But they do not have tools and services to help them. We'd like to change that.
Who are we?
Hi, we're Chris and Daphne Roy and we have been volunteering for many years helping our local animal rescues in whatever way we can. As a Pilot, Chris flies many times a month transporting animals from high kill shelters, to rescue organizations that will find them forever homes. But we have experienced first hand how difficult it is to coordinate these rescues, and how animal rescue groups need help to accomplish their goals by streamlining the process through technology.
What is Doobert.com going to do?
As you can see in our video, Doobert.com will streamline the process of coordinating these animal transports. Today, most rescues have their list of volunteer drivers they have worked with in the past and they rely on e-mail to blast out to these people to see if they can help drive a load of animals to get them out of high-kill shelters to safe locations where they can be adopted out to loving homes. All these e-mails take time to coordinate and read through and a single transport can take 20+ hours to coordinate. Our website and apps are being designed as tools to make the rescues job much simpler by managing the coordination of schedules, and routes for these rescue transports so the rescues can focus on finding homes for these animals instead of juggling e-mails of who can drive what leg.
