Change the World, One Dog at a Time

 The idea for The Global Dog started in 2016 when our Founder, Laurie, adopted a rescue, a former street dog, from Thailand, named Fanta. While completing her MBA at Duke, she decided to build a social app that would allow dog lovers to find everything they needed in one consumer-centric app - from finding adoptable dogs to dog-friendly businesses, vets, parks, restaurants, and hotels.  Read more about The Global Dog's origin story in an interview with Techli here.
