  • Needs an option to refine search by location Aug 3, 2020

    By jk62007
    We are searching for a puppy and I have used the website for awhile. There’s lots of information about animals, breeds and more and I appreciate that the site is tied to shelters and not breeders but I do have to log in every time and sometimes multiple times during the same search. Last week I decided to see if there was an app that would make our search easier. While the app provides all the same information as the website I was disappointed when my favorites from the website did not transfer to my favorites on the app despite using the same log in information. I was able to search for the pup by name and add them that way but it’s time consuming. I was also not able to refine my search by location and unlike the website the app doesn’t appear to sort by distance. The farthest search you can do is 100 miles and the next option is anywhere. We are willing to drive up to 300 miles but not necessarily across the country. When you search “anywhere” you have to open each profile to see where the animal is located and since there are so many dogs it’s too hard to find one that’s near us. For now I am searching on the website and keeping my favorites in the app. I do like the app and find it useful but I think it could be even better!

  • Good, but needs some refinement May 22, 2020

    By Too Beast
    This app is very useful, but I find myself constantly re-searching for new dogs every few minutes. I would love to use the notification feature, but I cannot figure out how to set that up... it seems like you would have to save search criteria but I cannot find that option. So, I went to the website to save search criteria. That works well... except the website and my device don’t seem to be linked even though I have logged into both with the same credentials! Recent searches and favorites do not show up in both places (nor do multiple phones with the same login share this information!). What is the point of logging in if I cannot use these features? For reference I have logged in using Google.

    I really like this app, though I can't say anything too helpful since I haven't gotten a pet from here yet. If any of the people who work on this read this, could you possibly add like a specific amount of time when the pets were put on the site? Like within 24 hours, a week, a month, or a year as options for it? Thank you.

    The entire 'Care & Behavior' tab of options has been busted for several months and does nothing to change or narrow results which is intensely frustrating. Layout has slightly changed a couple times over the last so many updates, current one only allows for one listing to be up on screen at a time while scrolling. Not a fan of it in general, previous layout was fine. Would be nice to set search parameters so should any pets within those categories get posted you get a push notification.

  • Needs updates Feb 20, 2019

    By Echo0217Chloe
    It’s a great app and I think it’ll work amazing if you adjusted a few things. First, make it so you can search for multiple things instead of one option. For example, instead of just large dogs, you can click large and medium sized dogs. And same with the age option. Second, if a dog is adopted, it should be updated immediately and the dog taken off the site. Having a dog up for adoption on a site when it already has a home can cause a problem. Also, put more in for a dogs personality. Like whether or not he’s housebroken, can handle other animals, can handle children, can handle both men and women, and is easily trained or something of the sort. It would make the app easier to use.

  • Well, it was kind of helpful... Jul 12, 2020

    By TwirlGirl85
    PetFinder has been my preferred website/app to search for new pets. It’s very clean, easy to use, and I like that I can use it on both my phone and PC. But there are a few kinks that definitely need to be worked out. 1. As other users have said, even if you log in with the same credentials, your favorites don’t sync between devices. 2. It would be helpful if you could rule certain breeds out of your search. My apartment complex doesn’t allow several breeds, so it’s time consuming to comb through all the results to find breeds that are allowed. 3. The latest update to the app is a deal breaker. I don’t know what they did, but after about 5 minutes running the app, it starts severely lagging, and within a minute freezes up not just the app, but my phone as well. A pet search app should not bring my iPhone 11 Pro to its knees. So unfortunately, for the time being, I’ll be switching to WeRescue as my main pet search app. I hope PetFinder can work out the kinks, since I really like their app/website.

  • The dog days are over Nov 2, 2019

    By Steve'sDad'sCousin
    I once had a simple happy life, perusing through a plethora of good boys in any spare time I have. Pet finder was my most used social media app. But this was all changed with this atrocity of an update that is discriminative against those individuals using an iphone 6 or less. So imagine this - you search for dogs within your area, scroll a bit, find one youd like to inquire more about. You click, scroll through the pics, imagine how great your life would be with said dog, sigh and hit the back arrow to look at more dogs. Nothing happens. You hit it again. Nothing happens. You do this multiple times until youve convinced yourself it must be your fingers fault. But youre friends try too and your family does and your coworkers do and NO ONES FINGERS WORK. my life has been destroyed by the fact that the back button no longer works with this update. I guess I will just have to get a new iphone.

    It would be a really grate app if it didn't reset and loose all of you favorites and preeferences every time you log out/are automaticly loged out. ---- The crashes were anoying but they weren't my issue. The app losing all my favorites was. I will try it for a bit and see if that issue is resolved. But I can tell right away that when I log-in none of my setting from the account I set up on the website are there. One would think if both are suposed to be petfinder that they would be connected.

  • Insufficient filters Apr 24, 2020

    By Devildante21
    This is a searching app. The search should be more dynamic and should allow for more filters. For example, the distance filter caps out at 100 miles. There needs to be more options for that. Increase the distance the user can search by; lower the increments; let us search by a state: like show me all pets in the state of Florida. Create better sorting algorithms. The sort doesn&#39;t even work if you set the distance to anywhere. I set the distance to anywhere, and hit sort by nearest, and the first result was in California and I&#39;m in Florida lol! Let us sort by age. Let us apply double sorts. Let me find all dogs in the state of Florida sorted by distance and age. Allow sort by breed, etc . These are some basic and crucial features all searching apps should have so users can find anything they are looking for.

  • Please check Yelp before you use a rescue Apr 13, 2019

    By Cash option
    I was shocked to see what I found when I checked yelp about a few &#34;rescues&#34; that advertise on this app. Please if this can save just 1 person from a broken heart and extensive vet bills my review was worth it. It&#39;s a neat app but should implement the ability to report these sham rescues out to just make money! 5 stars because it is easy to use. But please add the ability to let users give rescues a rating system. Until then do your homework check yelp!

  • Works with few bugs Dec 28, 2017

    By SuperSpumoni
    Works well. Interface feels much smoother than one from a while ago! I don&#39;t know what the previous version was like, but I really like this current interface. I absolutely passionately hate the new mobile web design of Petfinder on my iPhone web browser, so I&#39;ll be using this app instead! Sometimes the images won&#39;t load on the app. But it is resolved when I restart the app.

    Nice app easy to manipulate around gives you good feedback and the ability to read about the dog that you're interested in. Keep up the good work.

    Two key improvements would be to fix the care and behavior filter (isn't working as of v.2.8.2) and replace the distance filter with a slider and include a 250 and 500 mile step between 100 and anywhere.

  • Favorites List Jun 29, 2018

    By Isabella Russell
    It is a great app and lets me search for animals up for a adoption very easily. But there is one thing I have a problem with... it’s the favorites list. I have lots of favorites in my list because all the animals are so cute but when an animal is adopted that is on my list the pet isn’t taken off. This bothers me cause some of the pets are way down the list and I don’t feel like searching for it to see if the animal was adopted or not. Other than that the app is great

    I love the idea but whenever I try to look at animals from rescues outside my area it comes back with no results because the search area is just my current local area and not the area the rescue is located. I have not been able to find a way to turn that off and be able to look at out of area rescues and the pets they have available for adoption. Fix this and it'll be a better rating.

  • Search filters insufficient or broken May 1, 2020

    By SharaChes
    I do not understand, all these years later, why you can only search up to 100 miles and the next highest option is everywhere. Ridiculous. In the app when searching “everywhere”, it will not organize results by closest to farthest away - even though that is a a filter option, it does not work. Neither does “farthest away” and why the F is that a filter option anyway? No one needs that. I also wish they offered a filter for excluding breeds - this may be for political reasons, but I have a baby and don’t want to include certain breeds. It would also be great to have a “purebred only” option, but this is also probs for political reasons.

    It's okay. My main complaint is either with the people who post the animals or how the filters are set. When looking for a puppy that is in the small dog category 10 labrador retrievers shouldn't pop up. The last lab I saw was not a 25 lbs or less sized dog. Neither are pit bulls or mastiffs. They may less than weigh 25 lbs or less when they're a month old but not when they grow up. My point is I should have to go through 30 future big dogs with a small dog filter on to find a beagle.

  • Takes too long to load Feb 25, 2020

    By Sassybun
    I really want to love this app, but it glitches too much and takes minutes to load each photo for a pet. When I first go on it, it’s a little slow but works fine. But after looking through maybe 5 or so pets it’s stops working and won’t load the pictures on the profiles anymore. I can usually be pretty patient and wait for them to load. But waiting 5-10 minutes to view each pet profile is too long. If this problem were to be fixed I would use this app a lot more. It’s just unfortunate because there are not many animal adoption websites as large and wide ranging as petfinder, but I find myself using it less and less.

    no option to sign in with email, only Google account or Facebook account. I have an account using a Hotmail email created on the website. that account has saved searches, saved pets that I can not access through this app without starting over. other than that works as well as the website version as far as I can tell. Would change to four or five stars if I could sign into my current account

    Web and app aren't linked! I created an account via the website and saved a bunch of favorites, then downloaded the app on my phone and logged in, but the favorites don't show. Another annoying thing is there is no indication on who you have sent inquiries to.
