Free and without intermediaries
The project is the idea of three lovers of animals and technology that after analyzing this field, detected that there were technical deficiencies in addition to a lack of resources and means.
On the one hand, they warned that the vast majority of people involved in the different projects or organizations do so in a selfless way, with the few means available to them and in their free time. On the other hand, they also observed that people who seek to adopt a pet also do not have resources to facilitate and speed up the process.
After observing these shortcomings, they studied the possibility of creating a useful project, capable of helping both parties, reducing efforts and enhancing the visibility of adoption cases.
In addition, Pepecos, pretends to be a national reference for public statistical data. As of today, there are no official sources in which to consult the exact number of abandoned animals or the% of adoptions that are carried out every year at the national level.
Although it is fully operational, work continues on the application to improve its functionality by expanding the filters on the web and the development of the mobile app that will bring the functionality of lost animals as a novelty, allowing users to upload a photo of the animal found together With the time and location.
