Pet Finder: “Shopping” is a word we’d rather apply to groceries than to the process of selecting a four-legged family member, but that’s pretty much what the mobile version of the worthy website does. PetFinder claims to have assisted with more than 13 million adoptions from shelters and rescue organizations nationwide. Its mobile app lets you search adoptable pets and rescue organizations and helps find the right canine match for your lifestyle. Free.
Editor’s note: Another great rescue/adoption resource is DogTrekker.com/rescue, where you’ll find more than 150 animal welfare organizations listed and many profiled.
