As part of "Adopt a Shelter Dog Month" AT&T is promoting some helpful apps.
PetFinder displays pictures and descriptions of adoptable animals.
Another called "pet Phone" lists local vets and keeps track of your pet's appointments.
There is also one that can benefit your local shelter and keep track of your new pet
“There's an app called, "walk for a dog" and once you register with that application every mile that you walk they will donate a dollar to the shelter of your choice. There are several GPS systems you can get to put on your dogs collar that will go with an app. There's one called Tagg GPS, it puts an app on your phone and it can locate your dog wherever they are,” said Chad Cooper.
