A United States sheriff’s office recently launched a spoof dating site for cats and dogs called “Tender.”
On Facebook, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office in Florida announced the site as a method of matching cute pets with their “furever homes.” According to the caption, Sheriff Wayne Ivey, with the help of the department’s police dog, K-9 Junny, came up with the idea.
The announcement for the site read, “You only want to swipe right when you see these adoptable cuties.”
In the caption, authorities said each week a homeless dog or cat at the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Care Center will be spotlighted for potential families to “swipe right.” “This site was actually designed to find ‘furever homes’ for Junny’s homeless friends” at the animal care center, officials added.

“Junny’s Tender Site’ is designed to provide tender, loving and caring homes for the long-time dogs and cats in our Animal Care Center!!,” the announcement read. Knowing that having a ‘furever home’ is what every pet deserves, Junny decided he would launch ‘Junny’s Tender Site’ so he could post a new profile picture of one of his friends every Saturday, that will almost be a guarantee for a perfect match for a new pet and owner!!” it added.
Since the post was shared, thousands have liked the post and praised the new “Tender” initiative. One user wrote: “It’s so nice that all animals deserve a forever home. Thank you!” Another added: “What a great idea to reach out to the community”. “How wonderful…praying for tons of success for the unloved, unwanted and all voiceless beings,” added the third.

“Tender” is not a real app on the smartphone. The sheriff’s office will post profile photos each week of the dogs and cats that “will make you ‘swipe right,'” the caption read. It also added that the weekly social media posts tell you everything you need to know to rush to the animal center and find your “furever date.”
