The more people with the Pawscout App installed, the more pets we’ll be able to reunite with their families, so encourage all the animal lovers in your life to help protect pets by installing this free app.
“Pawscout is a wonderful cause as much as it is a great product. Our organization intends to make San Francisco the world’s safest pet community through Pawscout.” - Dr. Jennifer Scarlett, Co-President, San Francisco SPCA
How It Works:
Once a Pawscout pet goes missing, the Pawscout App alerts all users within range of the lost pet. You can choose whether to grab the pet and call the owner, or to just run the Pawscout App so that the owner can pinpoint his pet’s location if the pet wanders within range of your phone.
Lost Pet Alerts
You can choose whether or not to receive alerts if a lost pet wanders within 200 feet of your phone. The alert will include detailed information on the pet and a photo to help you recognize him.
If you find a lost pet you’ll be someone’s hero. The pet’s Pawscout profile will tell you how to get in touch with the owner and how to take care of the pet until he’s reunited with his family.

Create a Profile
Create a digital profile for your dog or cat including a photo and information on health, behavioral and dietary needs so anyone who finds your pet will know how to care for him until he’s back home with you.
Pawscout’s radar-style honing uses your phone to locate your dog or cat within a 200-foot radius at all times. If your pet gets lost (or just takes himself for a long walk), the Pawscout App will ping nearby community members for help.
Set up a virtual leash and receive notifications if your pet strays too far from home. A map shows his last known location.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
REQUIRES WILLING COMMUNITY TO BE EFFECTIVE. No other utility outside of if a pet is lost, but the app accomplishes it's job of storing and sending pet info in case of an emergency. Would like to see more effort in improving app quality (in app help section) & popularity. Urge everyone you know/see in the area to get the app to cover as much area as possible in hopes that someone will overlap with the pet. Product not free from basic bluetooth limitations.
So frustrating. I've tried to refresh it every possible way. The app hasn't worked in months and it's not even a yr old..
Great app when it decides to refresh location. If there is a way to refresh on demand i haven't found it. Also, while smaller than other trackers I researched, it's still large and bulky for cats.
I can log in just fine and view shared pets locations if close by. However I cannot access the general map. Would be a nice feature to have for those who want to help rescue!
I was looking for a cheaper pet tracker, and this product was the best for its price. The app works pretty well, and I feel more comfortable that my dog is safe.
I live in Costa Rica and so far the application has worked just great despite some minor hiccups I had uploading my cat's pic when I was setting it up. Nothing major to beat the developers about.
Really wanted this to work but it does not. Standard NFC tags that populate geolocation when scanned are much more useful.. Neat idea though.
Can only pick up signal about 6 feet away. In no way will this help locate a missing cat
It keeps crashing. Please fix.
Very useful and simple, a lot of useful information and features
Save spinner comes up for a fraction of a second after it has me crop image (new or from gallery) but never actually saves. Cannot move past this in account set up, so device does not work at all.
Needs to improve on correct location of animal.
Don't waste your money. Connection issues , Register issues and does not give accurate pet location. Does not update in real time. I had to get a refund. Gave them over 2 weeks and app is still not fixed!
Does not load and attempts to trigger seizures for people with epilepsy.
Does not update location my pet
LG G4, says "failed to upload" when promoted to choose picture. Have tried pictures on sd and internal memory. No way to skip, cannot finish registration... SAMSUNG GS6, goes to black screen and becomes non-responsive when prompted to upload a picture. Will post updated review when problems addressed
Worked well one time. Now the app will continue to crash and will not load the homepage to track my pet. It works perfectly on apple products, but does not seem to work as well on android devices. I would not be able to use this app if it wasn't for my ipad. Please fix the bugs for the android devices!
