Petango is the perfect app for you if you're looking to adopt a pet, find an animal shelter, or looking for a lost pet. Petango boasts North America's only real-time online adoptable pet search. The Lost Pet Alert Program links you to its web site, where you can sign up to join the Pet Recovery Network. It's a full-service site devoted to helping you find your lost pup or kitten. You can also create a free account on the home page, where you can get access to the adoption process, discounts and promotions on products, a community of pet owners and advice articles on how to adopt a pet. But the great resource of this app is its search functionality.
- You can search for a pet from a database of 1,400-plus animal shelters and rescue groups.
- Search by breed, age, gender and size.
- Swipe and select pet photos to view in more detail.
- View complete pet profile and description.
- View shelter details, including maps and contact information.
- Call a shelter automatically by tapping the screen.
- Search by distance from your ZIP code.
- Bookmark adoptable pets so you can find them again.
I like the app merely for the hundreds of breeds in its database. Next time you're at a party and you want to impress others with your canine knowledge, just drop some of these breeds in your conversation: a Kerry Blue Terrier, a Peruvian Inca Orchid or maybe an Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog.
