BRIGHTON, England, Oct. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Pawsr has today launched its social photo- and video-sharing network just for pets. The free app allows pet owners to give their beloved four-legged friends their very own social media presence and be part of a happy and safe community where cats and dogs take centre stage.
Created by serial entrepreneur Marc Pinter-Krainer, pawsr has been designed putting privacy first. Requiring no download or installation from any app store, the pawsr app is free from ads and does not contain any third-party components that could track user activity. The revenue model behind pawsr consists of a partnership directory listing services and products of businesses in the local community along with sponsorship opportunities.
“Dedicated solely to pets, pawsr provides a safe and fun platform for sharing happiness,” says Marc Pinter-Krainer, creator of pawsr. “Loving pet owners can now share photos and videos documenting life from the perspective of their four-pawed family member and be part of a feel-good community void of human complications.”
As a niche social network, pawsr speaks to a large target audience. According to Statista, 40% of the UK population are pet owners (*). On the other side of the pond, 68% of all U.S. households own at least one pet according to the 2017-2018 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA) (**).
The pawsr app can be accessed by both pet owners as well as pet admirers via the pawsr website at https://www.pawsr.com using any smartphone, tablet or personal computer. Access is free of charge.
pawsr is a social photo- and video-sharing network just for pets owned and operated by Pawsr Ltd., a UK-based media company.

Implemented as a single-page progressive web app (PWA), the pawsr app does not require any download or installation from traditional app stores and updates are instant and automatic.
