Adopt-a-Pet.com news for shelters and rescues
The dog and cat and bunny and… we could keep going, but what we want to say is the long sunny days of summer are finally here! We know that homeless pets don’t get to take a vacation from needing to find great homes. That’s why our team is here round the clock to help get your pets seen by more adopters. The result? Out site traffic has skyrocketed 40% in the past year! This week we did a major upgrade to handle the increase. Our sincere apologies if you experienced any glitches or delays during the process. If you have any feedback, please let us know. We’re here to help you at helpdesk@adoptapet.com. Now our site is faster than ever, saving you time so you can focus on saving pets!
