My final year project that I have chosen to develop is “Local Pet Minders”. The project is a native Android mobile application that allows working professionals and people in need with pets to post advertisements to connect with individuals who want to spend some time giving back by helping some furry companions.

The idea behind this application is to allow pet owners to post advertisements with any description that they wish (e.g. dog walking, finding a local pet sitter, grooming etc). Both sets of users (minders and owners) can post pictures of their pets, post their own ads and start chats.

I see this application as being beneficial to: owners, minders, and pets. The owner can review profiles, connect and meet with the potential minders so as to become familiar with the minder. This method gives the owner the piece of mind they need so that they know their pet is in safe hands. Minders will be rewarded with self satisfaction, monetary gains or the gain of a new furry friend, depending on the type of advertisement. The owner’s pets will likewise benefit by having a new friend in their lives who can take them for walks and meet their own friends.

The application was build using Android Studio, the official IDE for Android development, Java programming language and PHP scripting language for MySQL database connection.
