What breed or breeds will you select?

If you’re trying to make a decision when selecting a breed for a pet’s listing on Adopt-a-Pet.com, consider using the closest match to one of the top searched-for breeds. Of course be truthful, but instead of just “Terrier mix (Unknown type, small)” for example, if the pet might be a Yorkie and Chihuahua mix, pick those two breeds instead. Why? Most people using Adopt-a-Pet.com search by breed: 63% of dog searches and 50% of cat searches select a breed.  (Bonus tip: Dogs who have both a primary and a secondary breed selected will come up in searches for both breeds, getting seen by more adopters. So if the dog is a mix, choose both a primary and secondary breed.) More people seeing your pets means more chances at a great home!

We collected and analyzed 6 months worth of data from over 60 million pet adoption searches to give you the 29 most-searched-for dog and cat breeds on Adopt-a-Pet.com at http://shelterblog.adoptapet.com/2016/05/most-searched-dog-and-cat-breeds/

Next month we’ll be sharing what other pet characteristics are most-searched for too, including color, gender, and coat length!

Minneapolis and Newark are the latest billboard campaigns for Adopt-a-Pet.com, following Philadelphia, Miami, Chicago, Kansas City, St. Louis, and Phoenix. See the billboard images above!
