About this app

It may be painful losing your pet, but now you can have peace of mind, knowing that technology is finally helping pets to be easily located. Founded in 2020, Pet Hero is the definition of a pet radar, providing to all animals of all kinds including cats, dogs, birds, horses, and much more!

Sure, there are other platforms, designed to help find missing pets, but there is nothing like this. Rather than building on traditional pet-locating methods, Pet Hero is designed to work as a single platform to get pets back home in real- time using a network of smartphones. Simply put, neighbors helping neighbors where everyone's active participation goes a long way!

It’s every loving pet parent’s worst nightmare. It can happen when you least expect it—your pet has gotten loose and you can’t find them! Don’t panic. The first 24-48 hours are the most critical, alert your community before your pet roams farther away from home. Receive real-time result keeping you connected with your pet at all times by using radar-style tracking to hone in on their location. Plus, you can feel confident knowing that you won’t be alone while trying to find your best friend.


Approximately 80% of lost pets are found within 1 mile of where they went missing (even if this location is hundreds of miles from their home). But note that 20% of lost pets travel further – sometimes much further – so you are able to increase your search radius within Pet Hero.


You're driving your car. When you see a dog on the side of the road, with a sinking feeling you realize they are alone. What should you do? This is a wrenching scenario for all who care about animals. After all, what if your own pet was standing there? Too often the average person walks by without knowing what to do. The most important thing to remember if you find a lost pet is that now there is something you can do, and it only takes seconds. Take that photo and save a life! It is more likely that they have an owner searching desperately for them.


Register your pet before it’s lost. Sometimes our pets wander into unfamiliar surroundings and become lost. By registering your pet with Pet Hero, not only do you support responsible pet ownership, it also means that in the unfortunate event that your pet does go missing, a simple click from your phone can speed up the process even more!


Have you spotted a bear? A shark? Did you encounter a coyote while walking your dog? Reporting your sighting helps us live more harmoniously alongside wildlife. Depending where you are, the information provided is intended to educate your community regarding wildlife behavior, protecting pets, and improving the safety of all members of the community.


• Fellow Pet Hero’s ensure the quality of the alerts.

• We are here to end the never- ending cycle by increasing the number of pets reunited with their owners and decreasing the number of pets sent to shelters and euthanized.

• Your privacy is protected with us. Pet Hero does not require any personal information and no log in to start. Pet Hero is committed to gathering information of ONLY animals, thus eliminating common online breaches of a person’s identity and privacy.

• Pet Hero eliminates the need for strangers to get physically hands on.

• No matter where you are in the world, Pet Hero is just at your fingertips.

Help us continue to reunite lost pets with their owners. Join our network of leading worldwide heroes to help keep an eye out for lost pets in your area. Be a proactive neighbor, get the app, take a photo, save a life.

This app is stealing the logo of the Shadow app which shut down recently. If it's legit it doesn't have enough people using it yet. Really needs to integrate with more popular services so it's not just an empty list

Great app! You don't have to have a pet to use it. Simply take a photo of a stray and move on with your day! You never know who's life you can save. Pets vary from dogs, cats, birds, horses, and much more!
