Recently, Jennifer Aniston adopted a dog from Best Friends Animal Society. Now, the organization’s new app is making it easier for everyone to find a dog in need of a home.

Their new mobile app will show you your “dog twin” and help you find adoptable dogs. According to PR Web, ‘My Dog ID,’ available on both iTunes and Android Market, uses facial recognition technology from Face.com to show users their canine twin after they enter a photo of themselves. You can then share the picture of your new-found brother or sister!

The app is fun, but also meant to raise awareness of the many dogs waiting for homes, the ones that Best Friends calls ‘invisible dogs.’ Through the app, users can join their grassroots movement by signing their pledge to help invisible dogs or by donating. You can also find adoptable dogs in your area.

“In every community, there are far too many dogs waiting in shelters, out of the sight of most people who don’t even know they exist. These frequently forgotten dogs want nothing more than to be seen and given a second chance at life in a loving home,” said Best Friends marketing specialist Claudia Perrone.

The app adds to the organization’s Invisible Dogs campaign, launched last year to shed light on the many dogs that we don’t always see or think about but that are waiting in shelters for loving homes.

Actor Seamus Dever of ‘Castle’ is enjoying the app, and said “My long lost twin. Find your own invisible dog. Download this app.” Check out Dever’s Invisible Dogs video for Best Friends below!

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
