New Partner: PetMatch
.
We have a great new partner in getting your pets seen by more people! PetMatch is a brand-new free app created by the pet lovers at image search pioneer, Superfish. PetMatch uses Superfish’s patented visual search technology to hunt through hundreds of thousands of pictures of adoptable pets in the US to help people find a picture perfect adoptable pet in their area. You can see the app at
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/petmatch/id857946616?mt=8
.
Partners like PetMatch automatically link to your adoptable pets on Adopt-a-Pet.com with no extra effort on your part. As always, we give you control over what partners display your pets. At any time you can opt-out of your pets appearing on PetMatch by unchecking them as a partner on your Shelter/Rescue Info page at

Purina continues to help homeless dogs and cats
.
Our friends at Purina® continue to help remove barriers to adoption by changing perceptions of shelter pets!  One way that Purina supports shelters is through partnerships with Shelter-Me Photography and the Shelter Arts Foundation.  These organizations are dedicated to training shelter staff and volunteers to get the very best photo of every pet that is available for adoption.  You can learn more about this effort at www.meettherealme.org.

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 pro page on FacebookTwitter, and Pinterest to say a virtual hello!
