With the reopening of restrictions imposed during the COVID period, there’s an increase in the number of abandoned pets. As shelters are now working close to their capacity, food cost, on the other hand is rising unforgivingly. However, there’s a redistribution problem simultaneously encroaching. With the global consumer behaviour pattern changing towards e-commerce, there’s a gap between the ones who need the resources desperately and the ones who have these resources in excess.  To alleviate this problem, here we propose a new scheme where a benevolent agent (pawful.sg) goes to those who have in excess and gives it to those who need it. The exchange is completely voluntary.

The agent will go to organizations or individuals who have indicated their intention to give, and collect from them then deliver to those who need it. Ideally this should happen organically but due to the laziness on both ends to reach out to one another, this often gets displaced and resources in turn get wasted. Imagine the industrial machine would have to create new resources which will inevitably cause unnecessary waste. Therefore through this effort we reduce waste and also reduce the consumption of precious raw materials for the sake of conservation of mother nature. The ones who give will in turn receive recognition which can be quantified in terms of back-links. And the more societal points the higher probability the marketing campaign of the particular organization will work. These need not be intangible. The back-links which exist under the Google ecosystem stands as a testimonial to this approach.

This is clearly a novel economic model which when implemented correctly would bring benefits to humanity as a whole but also to homeless animals which are also part of mother nature’s miracle for us to enjoy.
