What email and/or phone are adopters seeing?

Did you know that your public email address (if you’ve chosen to show one), the adopters see on each of your pet listings, may not be the same as the email address you use to log in? We understand that email and phone numbers change, so we make it super easy for you to instantly update both your public and log in information! Now is a great time to verify that your public contact information is up-to-date, right here:



Your pet list iFrame on Facebook can now be secure!

If there’s one thing that never changes about Facebook and internet browsers, it’s that they are always changing! Some of their most recent updates caused the Facebook application that allows you to display your Adopt-a-Pet.com Portable Pet List of all your adoptable pets to be blank when viewed in certain browsers. To adapt to that change, we’ve now made all Portable Pet Lists secure! You just need to type an “s” to make your iframe link start with https instead of http.

Haven’t added your adoptable Pet List to Facebook yet? Here’s how:


The 2013 Adopt-a-Pet.com Veterinary Care Fund grant program is still open! We have $10,000 to give away in ten grants of $1,000 each to help US and Canadian shelters and rescues with their veterinary costs! Here’s how to apply:
Applications are being accepted through December 31, 2013. We’ll announce the recipients here (and, of course, we’ll contact the recipients directly as well).  Thank you so much for all you do! We’re proud to be able to help you with your pet-saving work.


Meet us in Tempe, AZ, November 10th – 12th

If you’ll be at the SAWA conference in Tempe, AZ, we’d like very much to meet you! Myself (Jennifer), Dana our Director of Marketing, and our former shelter-dog now professional spokes-dog Maggie will be at the Adopt-a-Pet.com table in the center of the exhibit hall. The hall is open:

  • Sunday Nov 10: 5:00 – 6:30 pm
  • Monday Nov 11: 7:30 – 8:30 am, 10:00 – 10:45 am, 3:15 – 3:45 pm
  • Tuesday Nov 12: 7:30 – 8:30 am, 10:00 – 10:30 am

You do need to be registered for the conference http://www.sawanetwork.org to access the exhibit hall. If you aren’t registering but are nearby and would like to meet in person, let me know! I’m happy to set up appointments outside the exhibit hall hours. We look forward to meeting you!


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 66,010 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.



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 FacebookTwitter, and Pinterest to say a virtual hello!
