Hope you and your pets are staying cool! We’re always looking for ways to save you time & help you get pets adopted. If you have any ideas or feedback, I’d love to hear from you at jennifer@adoptapet.com. Now, on to your Adopt-a-Pet.com news for September!

Adoption Inquiry Form: Beta available now, full launch October 1
We’ve had great positive feedback from those of you who’ve started using the new *beta* version of our Adoption Inquiry Form! We’d love to hear what you think of the new form. You can turn it “on” here:
On October 1st, the form will switch “on” for everyone! Whenever possible we want to give you options, so you’ll be able to turn it “off” at any time too.
How the form works: With the form set to “on” and if you’ve chosen to “show public” an email address (email option is here), when a potential adopter clicks your email address on any of your pet’s pages, a small form appears. For now, the form has just a few fields: name, email address, and a space where adopters can type then send you their message. You’ll get the message in an email, so you – or your autoreply – can reply directly back to them.
There are some neat advantages to using this form! One is a special spam blocker (called captcha) that helps protect you from spambots. Another is each message automatically includes the pet’s name, ID# if they have one, and a link to their page on Adopt-a-Pet.com — and that information is emailed to the potential adopter too. We’ve heard that’s super helpful for you know exactly which pet they’re interested in adopting, and for them to keep track too.
We appreciate your feedback during this beta phase, which will help us make this form the best it can be for both you and your adopters. Thank you!

Do you have 3 minutes for a short survey?
If you have 3 minutes to spare, you can help us learn more about your shelter or rescue and the pets in your care.  This information will help us to better serve you and will only take a few minutes. Please click on the link below to view the survey.

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 45,921 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 Purina® Pets for 55+, 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.
