Website maintenance

On Wednesday, September 14th the Adopt-a-Pet.com will be undergoing some scheduled maintenance. As this will include approximately one hour when the database will need to be unavailable, we have scheduled it for the slowest traffic time, starting at 1:00 a.m. Eastern. You will not be able to access the Adopt-a-Pet.com website including your Admin area or pet listings during that time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, but it is so we can keep our website in tip-top shape!

Petco Foundation Holiday Wishes Grants

The Petco Foundation in partnership with Petco is making holiday wishes come true for animal welfare organizations by awarding $750,000 in during their 2016 Holiday Wishes Grant Campaign! U.S. municipal or government animal shelters and U.S. nonprofit 501(c)3 organizations can earn a lifesaving grant up to $100,000 when one of their adopters tells the story of how their adopted pet changed their life for the better. Check out their FAQ and ask your adopters to apply before the Oct. 15, 2016 deadline at https://holidaywishes.fluidreview.com

Ready to spread the word to increase your chances of winning a Holiday Wishes grant? Find customizable promotion tools in their Partner Promotion Kit.

flagging

Tip: Scams targeting pet rescuers & flagging

We’ve recently been alerted to internet scammers who are targeting the pet rescue community, so we wanted to let you know about them too! People in animal rescue can be very kind-hearted, and scammers are taking advantage of your compassion with often convincing scams that purport to help pets in need. Some involve wiring funds, while others seem to be simply to get information about a rescue or rescuing in general, which may be used for future scams. As with any public forum, please use your common sense and be careful when dealing with people who contact you, even if they are inquiring about donating, adopting, or volunteering.

We so appreciate our awesome community who helps us monitor Adopt-a-Pet.com! In your Adopt-a-Pet.com shelter Admin area, our Volunteer tool gives you a way to instantly mark a volunteer’s profile as inappropriate. When you click “Report Profile as Inappropriate” button, that volunteer’s profile is flagged and immediately hidden from everyone’s view. You can even write a Comments about volunteers that all other shelter/rescue Pet Publicists can see. You can also use the Notes box for typing notes that can only be seen by yourself and other Pet Publicists on your account. Please use the report button carefully, and thank you for your help!
