Give Forever Homes to Rescue Animals with the New National Pet Rescue App

05 August 2015

UK - The makers of a new free mobile app are appealing to UK animal lovers for help in saving the lives of more than 10,000 rescue animals.

Homey Pet, available in IOS and Android, is a free and simple mobile app that helps the public to find a rescue pet that’s looking for a new forever home. 

For the first time UK rescue centers, animal sanctuaries and animal carers can list information about dogs, cats, horses and all other pets needing a new home on a national mobile app for you to view free of charge. 

Even though the Homey Pet app has only been in beta launch for just two months it already has 362 UK rescue centers who are today displaying over 2000 pets on the app waiting to be adopted.

Ian Rose from Homey Pet said: “We have been delighted with the response to our app so far. But now it gets serious. Our target of saving the lives of 10,000 rescue animals is a big one. And we know we’re not going to be able to do this alone. That’s why we are now launching this national appeal asking the nation’s animal lovers for their help.

“We need everyone who is looking for a pet or simply cares about animals to download the app today. This way we can make sure the animals needing a forever home reach the highest possible audience.”

Ian moved to act after the Manchester dog’s home fire prompted his curiosity about the animal rescue sector. 

Ian added: “The Manchester Dogs Home fire was obviously an horrendous event. When I saw those pictures on the TV I started to think about what I could do to help. The more I learned about how many animals are being taken from the pounds by rescue centres that are now looking for a forever home, the more I was convinced a free simple mobile app might just make a difference to the many rescue animals. It’s just a case of getting them in front of the nation.

“There’s a real education and awareness challenge too. We hope that the Homey Pet app will champion the fantastic work of UK rescue centres and stand shoulder to shoulder with them in their fight to save animals and help us achieve our target of saving 10,000 rescue animals”

The app is available for download on both ios and android now. More information about Homey Pet is available via or at
