A Facebook app has been developed by Samsung Electronics to mark its 20 years of support to the Crufts Dog Show. The app, Help-A-Dog-A-Thon, will benefit the pet charity Blue Cross by letting users adopt their own virtual rescue dog in return for a donation.

Users simply ‘like’ the app to adopt a virtual dog. For every adopted cyber-pet, Samsung will donate towards a health check for a Blue Cross rescue dog. Much like a Tamagotchi, the owner must ensure their pet is fed, watered, entertained and well looked after.
