Alright guys, I avoided the subject until now...

Pokemon Go.

But trust me there are dogs in this post! Pokemon and dogs!!!

A shelter in Muncie, Indiana, had a BRILLIANT idea.

What if we gave all these wandering Pokemon trainers a dog to walk? Isn't that a win for everyone? You're outside walking around anyway, why not walk a dog that needs love?
The director of the shelter, Phil Peckinpaugh, actually thought of the idea when he was playing it himself! His town was full of people of all ages walking around, and he saw the perfect opportunity.

Peckinpaugh says it’s only been an hour since Pokémon Go dog walking has officially opened, and he’s already seen lines of kids and adults at the shelter looking at adoptable pets and waiting to walk one around the neighbourhood.

The main point isnt to get these dogs walking, its to get them ADOPTED.

“If this game connects prospective families with these animals, then that is the best we could ask for.”

Who thinks this is the coolest Pokemon Go usage so far?!

Such a great idea!!! 😄🐩🐕🐶😄😄
looks like I have something to suggest at my local animal shelter (since I volunteer there anyway) 😂
I would do it, but then they would have to take the dog away from me because I will get attached. Even though I own a cat already 😂
This is.... Just... Brilliant!
AYYYY HUMANITY
