Shelter and Rescue Testimonials


If has helped your organization, tell us how…


Adopt A Pet is an important partner for networking our adoptable animals.  Adopt A Pet and its affiliation with other adoption sites gives our animals a great deal of exposure to potential adopters.  We love how easy it is to add new pets and the statics reports to show us which animals we need to concentrate our efforts on to make sure they aren’t overlooked in getting the good homes they deserve.

Haven Humane Society

Redding CA has helped PAWS save countless lives over the years. We have listed all our available animals on consistently since 2010 and it has resulted in many happy adoptions. Most of our adopters come to us after seeing our animals online; adoptable pet listings are an invaluable tool in saving lives.

PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society)

Philadelphia, PA


We love Adopt A Pet. Your site is a wonderful resource for shelters such as ours and we have our adoptable pets listed with Adopt A Pet embedded on our front page. The stat emails are great too…let’s us know what pets are getting seen…and others that may need a little help. We also love getting emails about potential volunteers! This is a wonderful resource.

Animals Can’t Talk Rescue and Adoption, Inc.

East Stroudsburg, PA


Adopt-a-Pet has helped our organization by providing an avenue to share our dogs and cats for adoption where they can receive so much more exposure than anything we can provide here in our rural setting.

Animal Advocates of Pearl River County

Picayune, MS has helped AFC by providing an online database that gives our adoptable animals access to thousands of views every month.  We receive applications for adoption, volunteer inquiries, and publicity from the thousands that view your website daily.  Thank You for continuing to provide this service for our Rescue, we appreciate the exposure.

Lodi, CA


We received a $1,000 grant on 1/20/14 from Adopt-a-Pet for medical equipment purchases. This allowed us to equip our medical team to reduce treatment times and shorten the length of stay for adoptable pets. Adopt-A-Pet is an appreciated partner in our push to render compassionate care to all homeless pets in our service area.

Animal Allies Humane Society

Duluth, MN is the best website to use to get dogs adopted. Your website is the first website we go to upload pictures; we like that you can upload as many pictures of our dogs as we need. Adopt-A-Pet is a well known website with a great reputation. We are able to list important dog adoption information and not only can potential adopters search by breed but they can also search nationwide by up to a 250 miles radius. is user friendly not only for rescue organizations but also for people looking to adopt a rescue animal. It is extremely easy for adopters to search important breed information but also be able to search by category (i.e.: special needs dogs, bond repair, etc.). I feel that Adopt-A-Pet really tries to keep their potential adopters informed; they always have helpful links to blog articles and a YouTube channel with useful pet training as well as entertaining videos. You can tell that the people that work/volunteer with Adopt-A-Pet care about animals and want to help people connect with rescue animals nationwide. We also appreciate that if there is a specific category or breed of dog a potential adopter is looking for that might not be available at the time if search, then Adopt-A-Pet will send email updates when the adopters specific search criteria has a match. Plus Adopt-A-Pet has the most referrals, giving our rescue dogs the best exposure, more than any other pet adoption website!  Our goal at Saving Grace is the same as Adopt-A-Pet; find great loving homes for homeless pets.

Saving Grace and Her Furry Friends, Inc.

Davie, FL


We are very grateful for our partnership with Adopt-A-Pet! We post all of our animals on Adopt-A-Pet and receive inquiries on our adoptable animals almost daily.  Adopt-A-Pet allows us to reach potential adopters that may not know about our shelter otherwise.  We recently had a family drive from almost an hour away to adopt three beautiful kittens, Annie, Thumper, and Lilly that they had seen on Adopt-A-Pet!

Germantown, TN


I wish we could tell just how many of our cats were found by their adopters through Adopt-a-Pet—we know it’s a lot! We have been linked up with Adopt-a-Pet for several years and all of our available cats can be found through your high profile and sophisticated search engine. Thank you for providing this service and giving our cats more exposure so we can save more lives and our cats can get out of the shelter and into homes more quickly!

The Paris Animal Welfare Society has been using Adopt-A-Pet to promote our available animals from the very beginning. We’ve reached thousands of potential adopters through Adopt-A-Pet, and placed countless animals that otherwise would never have received that level of exposure. Additionally, the Adopt-A-Pet website is one of our main tools in finding useful information regarding animal care, training, and pet ownership tips. We frequently post links to the website on our Facebook account to help spread the information. The fact that Adopt-A-Pet provides all these services for free, makes them all the more valuable to our organization.

Though we have not received financial assistance from Adopt-A-Pet, we have received assistance in significantly increasing the exposure of our incredible pets! It is relieving to know that our furry, loveable companions are getting out there and we know that Adopt-A-Pet’s assistance with this has turbocharged our increase in adoptions! It is especially helpful to get weekly statistic emails to see how we are doing. This past week our cuddly cats and dogs have almost 30,000 views! Thank you so much!

Since our adoptable pets have been listed on Adopt-a-Pet, we have seen an increase in the number of requests for more information about them.  This added exposure has particularly had an impact on the requests we have been getting on dogs we have listed. This has helped us maintain our adoption numbers at a time where we have been experiencing a drop in adoptions from brick-and-mortar adoption venues.

Destiny’s Road Animal Rescue

Three Rivers, MA


We rely on Adopt-a-Pet to help us get word out to interested pet parents in Tucson, and around the world. Just a few months ago, an interested adopter found one of our kitties, and fell madly in love—thanks to Adopt-a-Pet! We worked through some pretty complicated logistics, as the adopter lives in Alaska, while we are in Tucson, Arizona. However, Beatrix is safe, snug and happy with her new mummy, all the way across the continent from where she started. While Beatrix isn’t the only cat we’ve been able to place through Adopt-A-Pet’s website, she did go the furthest.

The Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter and Sanctuary

Adopt-a-pet has helped us immensely by providing a forum for us to showcase our adoptable pets.
