Pop star Sia has long been a defender of animal rights, and now she has found a fun and creative way to support pet adoption and no-kill shelters. Along with this week’s release of the digital deluxe version of her hit album 1000 Forms of Fear, the famously bobbed Aussie songtress has also launched a new game called “Bob Job.”
The game, which is available via the App Store and on Google Play, lets users match up sets of dogs, unicorns, bob haircuts and more in 100 different levels of play. Sia’s tunes including “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart” soundtrack the game, and in its promo video, tech magazines humorously sing its praises, and Silicon Valley fans will appreciate Pied Piper’s rave, “Bob Job kicks our algorithm’s ass.”
This cute and quirky game, which was designed by Sia herself, also supports Best Friends Animal Society. Best Friends Animal Society helped to pioneer the no-kill movement and helps to implement programs that reduce the number of animals entering shelters, and increasing pet adoptions. In Los Angeles, Best Friends is leading No-Kill Los Angeles, a citywide initiative, with the goal of making the city into a no-kill community. You can learn more about their work here.
