Having a hard time meeting people in Seattle? Try this new dating app for pet owners!
You’ve probably heard of the famous Seattle Freeze, but whether it’s real or imagined the fact remains that it can be hard to meet people in a big city. A new Seattle-based dating app for pet owners aims to change that. Offleash’d promises to help connect pet owners of all kinds with other animal lovers for dating, friendship, and socialization.
Read on for all the details!
CEO Manish Methai created Offleash’d after meeting his now-wife. Winning over her beloved puppy was just as important as wooing her, but the Seattle resident succeeded at both and used the inspiration for Offleash’d.
Offleash’d was launched in June 2022 and currently has hundreds of users in the Seattle area. Although it’s Seattle-based to start, the app will expand to California this fall.
An attractive feature of the app is its versatility. Offleash’d has two modes: dating and friendship. You can use one or both modes. If you’ve ever swiped right on Tinder or Bumble solely because of the cute kitten in someone’s profile pic, then Offleash’d may be your new favorite dating app. And if you’re simply looking for some new friends to meet up with at the dog park, you may get a lot out of Offleash’d “Pet Social” mode.
Each person’s profile has ample space to highlight their pet (or pets!). Offleash’d isn’t limited to dog and cat owners, either. If you own a horse, a ferret, a snake, or a gerbil, you are welcome to use the app to connect with like-minded pet owners.
Offleash’d may be just the thing that Seattleites need to break the ice. You can download the app or visit their website.
