WHERE CAN I HAVE A COFFEE WITH REX? THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT

There are apps for everything these days. Some are more useful than others, and we have tested several pet-related apps. Today we’ll be talking about Amici Onlus, which helps you go on holidays without particular worries by providing you a list of hotels, bars and veterinarians closest to you.

 

Created by Amici Onlus, an association that has been fighting pet abandonment for years and raising awareness about pet issues, is a must-have app for anyone who owns a pet.

 

Very intuitive and easy to use, and available for free for iOS and Android, it uses the AmiciAdvisor service to consult or post comments and pictures of the more than 6,500 pet-friendly hotels and restaurants contained in the search engine. The initiative was sponsored by the Office of the Prime Minister. Thanks to this app, you can plan your vacations and your free time in the company of your pet, using the interactive map to select the closest pet-friendly venue for you. User reviews and photographs are also very useful. There’s also a small area dedicated to news, continuously updated by Amici Onlus. Fear not: it is possible to go away with our pets for the first spring weekend.
