Wondering which colors, age or coat length to choose? This can help!

If you’re trying to make a decision when selecting a color or coat length for a dog or cat’s listing on Adopt-a-Pet.com, consider what are the top searched-for values — we’ve collected and compiled them for you from over 60 million searches by potential adopters! Of course be truthful, but what if a pet falls across two or more possible choices? If you are wondering what to choose, try choosing the value that gets searched for the most. Why? More people seeing pets they want to adopt means more pets getting more chances at finding a great home!

The below search data was compiled from September 1, 2015 through March 1, 2016 from over 60 million (60,751,681) pet searches run on Adopt-a-Pet.com. Questions? Email us at helpdesk@adoptapet.com
