eBay Classifieds is helping adoptable pets find new homes with a recently launched iPhone Pets app, making it easier than ever for users to find an adoptable pet in their neighborhood or local shelter.  There are 7,500 adoptable pets, pet accessories and services available in the Houston area alone on eBay Classifieds.

The Pets app, free to download and compatible with both the iPhone and iPod Touch, provides a slideshow of available pets, robust search functionality, and the ability to easily respond to and share ads via Twitter, Facebook and email.

eBay Classifieds has partnered with the Humane Society of the United States to provide pet care and ownership tips on the eBay Classifieds website, and through the “Pet Info Center” available on the Pets app. Tips include:

•          Guidelines for responsible pet purchase or re-homing

•          Preparing your home for a new arrival

•          Dog care essentials

•          Cat care essentials

The Pets app is available for download at iTunes. Visit the eBay Classifieds iPhone Apps page to learn more.
