We sincerely hope you had a quiet and uneventful 4th of July holiday, but we know that for so many shelters, it’s the busiest and often hardest few days of the year. Now that the fireworks are over, if your shelter has pets unclaimed and ready for adoption, we are here to help you find them new homes. Our mission (and passion!) is to you help more homeless pets!

New feature: “My Adopter List” with export

You asked for it, we added it! If you’ve been saving your adopter info when you mark a pet as adopted on Adopt-a-Pet.com, you can use your new “My Adopter List” at http://www.adoptapet.com/shelter/adopters/list a searchable list of all your adopter info. You can use the search box on your My Adopter List to search by any information you’ve saved, or sort by Adopter name, address, name of the pet adopted, pet type, or adoption date. You can also export a CSV file of all your adopters by clicking the big green Export Report button at the bottom. Soon we’ll be adding the ability for you to edit the adopter info right from this list! For now, to add or edit adopter info, go to your My Adopted Pets list and click on the Adopter link or button on that pet’s row.
