Springtime means lots of baby animals! Need foster homes? You can contact local foster home volunteers through the Adopt-a-Pet.com Volunteer Database, now with 29,896 active volunteers waiting to hear from you! If you need other help or have a feature request, I’d love to hear from you at jennifer@adoptapet.com. Now, on to your Adopt-a-Pet.com news for May!

Your Approved Shelter or Rescue Badge is ready

We receive many e-mails each month from our site visitors asking if a particular shelter or rescue is credible. In response, we created badges of approval that state your shelter or rescue has been approved by Adopt-a-Pet.com. We believe that having a seal of credibility on your website from an outside source like Adopt-a-Pet.com might help in your adoptions and possibly even your donations! We are only offering these website badges to shelters and rescues who have passed our initial screening process for signing up on Adopt-a-Pet.com – if you’re receiving this email, that’s you! Choose from several designs and get the HTML code to display your Approved Shelter or Approved Rescue badge at:


Does Your Rescue or Shelter use Advantage® II or K9 Advantix® II Flea and Tick Products?

As major supporters of Adopt-a-Pet.com, the folks over at Advantage® II and K9 Advantix® II would like to get the opinions of animal care professionals about these products and if they’ve been helpful to the animal welfare community. If you’ve ever used these products or if they’ve been helpful in your work with homeless cats or dogs, here’s your opportunity to voice your thoughts.

Come see us at the Animal Care Expo in Nashville

We’re looking forward to meeting many of you at the Expo! Come by our booth #604 in the exhibit hall to meet some of our team: David, our co-founder and President, Dana, our Director of Marketing, Pia, our spokesperson, and Jennifer, our Director of Shelter Outreach. We’ll be there May 8th, 9th, and 10th. Hope to see you there!


Purina continues to help feed homeless dogs and cats

Our friends at Purina® Pets for People continue to help shelters and rescue groups with donations feeding 14,499 dogs and cats so far in 2013!

Purina’s support of animal welfare takes the form of Animal Welfare Support programs for non-profit organizations, described in detail on www.PetsforPeople.com. Their programs such as Pets for Seniors, Pro Plan® Rally to Rescue® and the Purina ONE® Pet Welfare Program are dedicated to providing support for local animal welfare organizations in their efforts to find homes for adoptable animals.

Occasionally the Nestlé Purina PetCare Company may have food donations available in your area. When you register your organization on www.PetsforPeople.com you will be automatically considered for any food donations that become available near you. During 2012, Purina donated more than $13 million in pet food and litter. In addition, should your organization be affected by a natural disaster, Purina may be able to provide food to help feed your organization’s animals during your time of need.


And, of course… 
As always, we thank the wonderful, pet-loving people at Purina and Bayer Animal Health for supporting all of us in our mission and making Adopt-a-Pet.com a free service!
That’s all our news for this month. We’d love to hear what’s going on with you too, so please stop by our pages on Facebook and Twitter to say a virtual hello!
