New Search Results design

Exciting news! Our designers and engineers have been hard at work on improvements to our website’s design and technology. A big and exciting project! We will be gradually rolling out the updates, starting with the shelter search results pages only – sneak peek in the screenshot above! The new design will be faster and easier to use on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices. On Monday, April 10 the new design will be visible to a small portion of our site visitors. Once we gather information and make any needed refinements, we’ll make the improved version of the shelter search pages available to everyone. (Psst… You can see what the page looks like using this special secret link.)

You can make sure your shelter or rescue’s info that shows on the search results pages is up-to-date by visiting your My Shelter/Rescue Info page.

Rehome400

Are you referring relinquishers to Rehome?

Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet.com and The Petco Foundation is the newest tool available to you as a shelter or rescue on Adopt-a-Pet.com. Rehome is designed to help pets go from their current home directly to their new adopter without ever entering a shelter, placing additional burden on a rescue, or ending up in dangerous hands via a classified site. It guides individuals who are rehoming a pet and gets their pet seen by potential adopters on Adopt-a-Pet.com. Plus, it can help fund your organization because every relinquisher who uses Rehome can select an organization to receive the adoption fee ($20 to $50) paid by the new adopter. All you need to do is have an active shelter/rescue account on Adopt-a-Pet.com (if you’re reading this, you already do!) and send your relinquishers to http://rehome.adoptapet.com and tell them to select your organization’s name in the referred by question. Read more about Rehome by Adopt-a-Pet.com and The Petco Foundation and check out the FAQs for more info!
