I'm sure you've heard of the dating app Tinder. It's a simple way for people to meet up, all you have to do is swipe right. Now the dating world is going to the dogs - and cats and rabbits and other pets - with a brand-new app that is sort of the animal kingdom's version of Tinder, Match or even eHarmony.

AllPaws is a new website and app that combines the online/mobile dating experience with finding furry friends a forever home. Hang on, this isn't an app for your pets to meet up for a little - ahem - "quality time."

This app is about finding people the right pets, with an online dating twist. But it's even better than dating, because there's no rejection on your end.

Even if you come across dogs or cats that aren't right for you, it's easy to share pets in need of a home on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest. The site itself is pretty easy to use. Just select the kind of pet you're looking for, the breed, and enter your ZIP code.

AllPaws will show a list of results that you can filter pretty heavily to find just the right pet for you. Looking for a dog that's good with cats and kids? There's a filter for that. Living in an apartment? There's a filter for that, too.
