If you’re looking to learn more about dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, birds, and other animals available for adoption in your area, take a swipe through WeRescue. The app features full-screen images of local pets and lets you contact shelters directly through the app. You can also filter results by breed, size, age, gender and other details. The animals’ information is sourced from both shelters and foster-based rescues, with your results displaying animals closest to your search location. And the information from the shelters is updated whenever the organizations make any changes to an animal’s adoption status. This means you’ll be up-to-date on the status of any animal you’re considering welcoming into your home.

BarkBuddy — which was created by the founders of BarkBox
— is another great option if you are searching for a new addition to your family. To use the service, just download the app and start swiping through the profiles of dogs in your area. When you find a pet you’re interested in adopting, you can organize a meeting with the rescue or shelter directly through the app.
