What’s New

Version 3.9.3

Thank you for choosing to adopt rather than shop for your new pet! In this version, we've squashed a bug that occurred when some eager adopters tapped on a pet before it was done loading. Makes sense... we're anxious to see the cute pets, too!

Great app but Rescues Don’t Respond

I’m on a serious hunt to rescue a dog or two after our two recently passed. I used the app to find dogs, sent e-mails, & of the 10 I sent, I’ve heard back from 2. One did a home check & I still haven’t heard back other than our home checked out ok. The other, I have an appointment in mid September. They couldn’t get me in before then. I know there are a ton of dogs on the street, but after going through this process, I can see why people go through breeders & people selling. I won’t do that & will continue to be patient & find other avenues. The app works great though, just wish people would respond when I contact & submit an application.

Thanks for sharing your experience with us. You've discovered the issue that is unforunately too common in rescue. Most organizations are run by volunteers and often they are overwhelmed with applications for the pets. I'm constantly trying to think of a way to use technology to help with this issue. I hope that we find some ways to make rescue the easiest option.

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.

Thanks so much for your feedback, PazVale!
I've found that not everyone is a fan of the panning image. Good news is that you can turn off that feature by tapping the button in the top right portion of the app. You can also turn on/off the slideshow by tapping the button next to it.
Thank you for your recommendations! You're saving lives!

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.
