Includes rescue dogs, cats, barn yard animals, birds, horses, rabbits, reptiles and small & furry pets!

• The largest number of filters of any pet adoption app
• Beautiful full-screen slideshow photos

WeRescue app connects you with hundreds of thousands of pets across the U.S. and Canada – easily and quickly! Pets from shelters and foster-based rescues are shown in order of distance from your location. Enter zip codes for different areas and even save multiple searches to go back and forth easily. WeRescue can cap your search to a certain distance and let you specify gender, age, size, breed, and so many more. WeRescue offers more filters than any other adoption app!

WeRescue lets you share pets via social media, SMS text, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp and many more. Even if you're not in the market for a new pet, you can help save pet lives by sharing the beautiful pictures with friends. Your friends will see the exact pet you shared when they open the WeRescue app.

Pet information is updated the instant the shelter reports a change. We're proud that we've brought innovative features to you like breed search, hiding breeds, mixed breeds, extensive filters, and beautiful full-screen pictures with slideshows.


What's New

Version 3.7

Thank you for choosing to adopt rather than shop for your new pet! We've added a new feature which lets you see which pets others are sharing. We encourage you to share the adoptable pets on social media or text as often as you can. These pets deserve loving homes and every share helps them get closer to a forever home! <3

Easy to use


I love this app! It’s very easy to use and I was able to find a furry friend to adopt. The information is updated frequently which is very useful. The only improvement I would suggest is making photo navigation simpler I wasn’t a huge fan on the pan image option. Other than that I’m very happy to have found this app. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to adopt a pet.

Love this app except for the round pictures.


This app has great search options and is very easy to use. It has never crashed or hung on my iPhone 7 Plus. My only complaint is the round pictures in the search results list. Many of the pictures are hard to see because ears or noses are lopped off by the circle formatting. Please change them to squares!

Developer Response

Thanks for your feedback, GlassyLady! I'm glad that it's working well for you. I agree, often you get more detail with a square photo when browsing. Good news – we offer an option for square photos. Tap the More button at the bottom, tap Settings and toggle the "Browse Photo Square vs. Circle" button.

Great app! but could be better

Conscious conception

I love how user friendly it is- loads quickly too. It would be so great if you could add “bonded pair” in the header so you know up front if the dogs are a pair. Also I don’t see a category in the description for “gets along with cats”.

Developer Response

Thanks for your review! Often the shelters who list their pets in the WeRescue app will include the bonded pair information in the pet name or description, but not always. We will ask them to do it more. If a shelter has told us that the pet gets along with cats, we'll show that in the detail page. For $1.99 you can get 65+ additional search filters, which includes "gets along with cats" if you'd like to only see pets which meet that criteria.
