  • New: Bigger pet photos in search results
  • Meet us at our Expo booth May 20-22
  • Pet Inquiry email change due to AOL and Yahoo
  • Purina continues to help homeless dogs and cats
May flowers and kittens are blooming! Don’t forget we have many local foster home volunteers waiting to hear from you in the Adopt-a-pet.com Volunteer Database. If you need help with or have feedback about our features, just email Jennifer and Laurie at helpdesk@adoptapet.com - we’d love to hear from you!
New: Bigger pet photos in search results
You asked for it, so we added it… new bigger pet photos on Adopt-a-Pet.com’s search results pages! The search results thumbnail photos are now 400% bigger than before, a massive 200×200 pixels! Wow! Bigger photos mean potential adopters are more likely to find a pet that appeals to them. All search thumbnails are square with rounded corners. You don’t need to do anything to your pet photos. Our new thumbnail generator does that for you auto-magically! See a screenshot of what the bigger search results photos  look like and find out more at
Meet us at our Expo booth May 20-22
We’re looking forward to seeing so many of you at this year’s Animal Care Expo in Daytona Beach, Florida! Our staff Jennifer, Dana, and Katya will be at our booth in the exhibit hall Tuesday from 6 to 9 p.m., Wednesday from 2:30 p.m.to 3:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. We’re in booth 619, right next to our friends Purina. We hope you’ll stop by and say hi!
Pet Inquiry email change due to AOL and Yahoo
Most changes we love to tell you about, but we’ll know we’ve handled this one well if you haven’t even noticed! Due to email policy changes made by AOL and Yahoo, we had to change the way our pet inquiry form sent you the messages from potential adopters. If you look closely, you may see the pet inquiry emails now come from our domain, with the reply-to being the potential adopter’s email address. So you can still simply click “reply” and you’ll be emailing the potential adopter directly! We can’t predict what internet companies are going to do, but thanks to our awesome programmers, we can respond quickly when they do. We’re here to keep up with the changes, so you don’t have to!
Purina continues to help homeless dogs and cats
Our friends at Purina® Pets for People continue to help remove barriers to adoption by changing perceptions of shelter pets!
One way that Purina supports shelters is through partnerships with Shelter-Me Photography and the Shelter Arts Foundation.  These organizations are dedicated to training shelter staff and volunteers to get the very best photo of every pet that is available for adoption.  You can learn more about this effort at www.meettherealme.org.
Found Animals Microchips
The Found Animals Registry was built for one reason: all lost pets deserves to find their way home. As a nonprofit organization, they offer low-cost microchips and 100% free registration in support of that vision. Email Found Animals at microchipsales@found.org to learn more.
And, of course… As always, we thank the wonderful, pet-loving people at Purina and Bayer Animal Health for supporting all of us in our mission and making Adopt-a-Pet.com a free service!
That’s all our news for this month. We’d love to hear what’s going on with you too, so please stop by our Pro page on FacebookTwitter, and Pinterest to say a virtual hello!
