The Pet Rescue is an online service that partners with over 65,000 participants to provide support for families with lost pets. Created in 2003, this free service uses veterinarians, social media and animal shelters across the United States to help bring lost pets back to their owners.

The Pet Rescue offers a free classified section that allows users to post pictures and create ads with the lost pet's information. The Pet Rescue then sends the information to local veterinarians, animal hospitals, shelters and neighborhood watch groups within a 25-mile radius. The Pet Rescue also offers a premium service that covers a larger area.
