How to add clickable links to your pet’s description

Posted by Jennifer on February 5th, 2013

We’ve heard from a few of you that you’d like to be able to have links that adopters can click right in your pet’s story! We understand, as clickable links can help adopters get quickly to your website right from your pet’s story, like directly to your online adoption application. Adding a clickable link to your pet’s description or your pet description templates is possible and not too hard! You do need to be able to copy and paste some HTML code, and customize it with the link you want to use. You don’t need to be an HTML coding wizard to figure it out! We’ve written out step-by-step instructions and posted them here.

This is how to add a clickable link to your pet’s description. You can use the same technique to add it to any of your Pet Description Templates too, if you use templates.

1. Log in to your Adopt-a-Pet.com shelter account.

2. Click Add Pet, or click on the pet’s name in your Pet List to edit the pet.

3. In the pet’s “Story / Description” box, copy or type this line of code exactly:

<A HREF=http://www.website.com>Click Here</A>

4. Very carefully type over the www.website.com with the link you want to use.

Example: You want to link to your online application, which let’s pretend is at www.adoptapet.com/index.html <- So your link code will now look like this:

<A HREF=http://www.adoptapet.com/index.html>Click Here</A>

in your pet listing it will look like this: Click Here

That’s it!
