I think I am in love with all of you at Adopt-a-Pet.com. I submitted pix and
bios and I found it so easy! I volunteer at our Humane Society here in a small
town in Arkansas and with the Internet and your site I can get our animals seen
all over the world! The graphics are wonderful and I like the fact that you will
Humane Society of Rogers
I think Adopt-a-Pet.com is a wonderful tool for any shelter. It is user friendly.
We have had several new parents at the shelter who found their new baby on this
site. Thanks to websites like this one that help low funding shelters get their
pets adopted. It is a great help to the shelters having tools to get the animals
Humane Society of Clark County
has been a boon and a blessing. We love the page format, which really shows off
our adoptees in their best light. There's plenty of space for long stories, beautiful
pictures, even video! The staff is very responsive to the users. We love it!
Great way to reach potential adopters about your adoptable pets. Multiple pictures
allowed, videos (Videos are a great way to help the harder to place pets so people
can see their personalities). There is a function that emails people looking for
pets when a pet fitting their description shows up. Updating the pet listings is

Redondo Beach, CA
My Name is Rene Silva and I’m with the United Yorkie Rescue. We have used
this site for about a year now and I love it. Our pups get a lot of exposure. This
site is very easy to use and I have found I get most of my questions about my pups
from this site. You can also find volunteers in your area, and upcoming events.
I would recommend this site to all shelters and rescue groups.
United Yorkie Rescue
I love the way this site is set up. It has made posting pets as easy as can be.
We have gotten several of our pets adopted because of Adopt-a-Pet.com. Thanks!
Avery Humane Society
As someone with little time and not a lot of computer savvy, I have come to depend
on the ease and quick ability to post our dogs on the site and modify their and
our information at any moment. I love the weekly stats page as it gives me a chance
to see which dogs are being seen and which are not. It also gives me hope that
those dogs that seem harder to place are getting looked at and that they are being
looked at from several places meaning that their furever home may just be around
Hello, Adopt-a-Pet.com! Kitten Krazy is ecstatic with your service as we received
emails from potential adopters the first week we posted our kitties. Thank you
so much for this much-needed avenue of help.
Kitten Krazy, Inc.
Adopt-a-Pet.com is a tremendous plus for our organization. We are able to post
pictures and bio's of our adoptable pets. They are viewed all over the country.
Isn't that the main objective of all of us. To get the word out there that our
wonderful rescued pets are there for the want of a forever home. Working together
with established and very well known web sites like Adopt-a-Pet.com is a WIN-WIN.
The price is always right and all the added information, contests & blogs will
keep the hits coming.

Thank you so much Adopt-a-Pet.com... I've listed my rescues on your website since
2002 and have had many successful adoptions that started from your website.

Richland County Animal Control
BARKS began using Adopt-a-Pet.com late Winter of 08. We have been thrilled with
the ease of use posting and revising the pets as well as viewing the hits. The
Adopt-A-Pet.com staff have been very helpful and responsive whenever questions
By placing a pet on Adopt-A-Pet.com you are enabling thousands of people to access
your adoptable pets. Non-profit rescues must watch every dollar they spend. Adopt-A-Pet.com
is a no cost service to us. We could never afford the cost of advertising that
would enable us to receive that amount of prospective adopters. We are located
in MI. it's not unusual to have adopters from Alaska, New Mexico, Georgia, Oregon,
Maine, just to name a few. And the fact that we ship anywhere in the U.S. gives
us no boundaries.
Adopt-a-Pet.com is easy to use, pets gets viewed by many potential adopters.
I have had adoptions from this site because users find it convenient to search
for pets in all areas, they get the information they need at a glance, and they
trust the site for safeness and accuracy. The more places we can post pets the
more pets get homes faster.
We have been posting our dogs on Adopt-a-Pet.com for a couple of years now and
have had wonderful results especially with those potential adopters who have signed
up to be notified when a particular breed is posted. The majority of the time it
has proven to be a perfect match. The way the animals are displayed on the website
are fabulous and enticing to anyone looking for a new family member. The information
is clear and the links to our website are fabulous.

Miami Gardens, FL
I wanted to let you know all our adoptable cats are posted on your website now.
Even though we only had 1 cat posted there last month, we still received two calls
for her. That was motivation to get the rest of them on there! What a wonderful
service you provide. It's been very easy to learn and took no time at all to upload
our information. Our foster families also like the fact we can post more than one
photo - sometimes it's so hard to pick just one! It's also a bonus to have the
cats automatically appear on your partner sites and to get updates on the click-through
statistics. I am sure this visibility will translate into more adoptions for our
Thank you for your work!
President, Alley Cat Guardians
We've found that Adopt-a-Pet.com has brought a big increase to our applications!
The New Pet Alerts emails allow people to have your fresh updates delivered directly
to their inbox, so they don't have to remember to check the website every day.
And we've seen big click-through rates from partner websites, which means bonus
exposure for no extra work! Speaking of work, you'll find the interface quicker
than some other sites if you post by hand. If you wish to post using a spreadsheet
or direct export from your shelter software, you'll find that Adopt-a-Pet.com is
light-years ahead on this point. In fact, this facility alone can make your additional
posting time almost nothing!

I have only been a member for a short time, but my success rate in adoption has
been phenomenal. I have been able to adopt 3 dogs out within a month's time, which
is awesome. Thank you Adopt-a-Pet.com.
Adopt-a-Pet.com has been an invaluable tool in finding awesome homes for the
dogs and cats in my rescue. It is very user friendly and only takes a few minutes
to add a pet to your list. I am always amazed at how far people will come to adopt
the perfect new member for their family. Thanks you Adopt-a-Pet.com for providing
this wonderful tool for all of the homeless animals looking for their forever families.
Bright Futures Pet Adoption & Rescue, Inc
Thanks to Adopt-a-Pet.com, we are getting so many hits on our cats. They are
always on top of things and do a really good job of getting them out to be seen.
Thank you to Adopt-A-Pet.com.
Northeast Animal Rescue
I couldn't be happier with the Adopt-a-Pet.com website and its services to Animal
Welfare Groups like our own, the Labrador Retriever Rescue of Utah. It's very easy
to upload and update our dogs, and I love that it gives an extra picture and a
video compared to other sites. The layout of the website is easy to access and
get around in, and many potential adopters have commented that it is easy to do
a search on what they are looking for. From the day we started using this service,
when it was 1-800-Save-A-Pet.com, we have recommended it to other Rescue groups
and City animal shelters. The more exposure for our adoptable pets the better!
Thank you for an easy, nice looking, and productive service for the homeless animals
and those who are trying to help them!
Labrador Retriever Rescue of Utah
West Jordan, UT
We've been with Adopt-a-Pet.com for a long time, and we're so glad we're here!
Almost all of our Internet referrals come from Adopt-a-Pet.com. Posting new cats
is very quick and easy here, and we're grateful for the staff's flexibility and
wonderful customer service. They're always willing to listen to our suggestions
and try to accommodate our needs.
Howard County Cat Club
We've done well with Adopt-a-Pet.com. It's super simple to use and to transfer
info from other pet adoption sites to Adopt-a-Pet.com. Another rescue told me about
the site and I'm very happy that I checked it out.
River City Rescue
Saint Louis, MO
BEI Mastiff Rescue loves you for the following reasons
1. We are seen on other websites
2. One stop place for information and help for specialty and exotic breeds
3. Easy for SPCA to find us and communicate
4. Easy for people that need to surrender a dog to find us and communicate their
need with more confidence that just an average rescue on the internet.
5. Carries a name and associates that everyday people can identify and trust
6. Great information and news letters.
BEI Mastiff Rescue
I can tell from email
subject lines that many people find me and the
dogs in my rescue through Adopt-a-Pet.com. Many people have mentioned
it when they contact me. I am very grateful to be an Adopt-a-Pet.com
member, as it definitely helps me place pets in good, pet-loving
homes. The people are very friendly, they offer various resources, I
highly recommend it.
Dixie L. Davis
San Antonio, TX
This is a great site! They send weekly updates to let you know how each pet's
listing is doing - this gives us an opportunity to tweak each listing until we
get an animal adopted.
Other pet adoption websites may have large advertising campaigns, but we've gotten
almost as many hits and applicants from Adopt-A-Pet.com (formerly 1-800-Save-A-Pet)
over the last 5 years. The site is easier to post our foster dogs to than the others
and there is no delay in getting our newest postings seen like there is on other
adoption websites - and you also don't need to know html code to set it up like
other site's required home pages do.
Linda Cribb, President
East Coast Asian Dog Rescue, Inc.
Mays Landing, NJ (all east coast states)
Adopt-a-Pet.com is great. We adopt out many animals because of this website.
It's another great way for people to look around for the animal they are looking
for without leaving their homes. It brings more people into the shelter that would
have not come in if it wasn't for the fact they saw an animal they're interested
in and came down to see them.
West Warwick Animal Shelter
West Warwick, RI
I just learned about Adopt-a-Pet.com recently, and started out with only five
dogs to start with, until there was some data on utilization. In the past few weeks
since adding these pets, we have had lots of hits on these pets, and two of the
five have found forever homes!!! I like the ease of use as the administrator, as
well as the pet view stats. I will be prioritizing the addition of the rest of
our pets and hope to continue having good utilization.
ECAH Animals Inc.
We are finding that a new audience is looking at Adopt a Pet as compared to other
pet adoption websites---we are receiving inquiries from a very serious audience
and by that we mean serious about adopting a rescue animal. The families we meet
with have done their homework; are dog savvy; have the home environment and financial
stability to have a pet at this time in their lives. Many understand the breeds
and what breeds are best suited to their families. We also like the personal look
of the website and the notices we receive on important issues facing the animal
Manhatten's Rescue Sanctuary
Hi, I live in Houston, Texas and became part of a rescue group in Tennessee and
Florida through your website. I have been able to adopt and foster four Papillions
that I have found through your website in far reaching places that I would have
not been able to have a home for if it weren't for your website, so thank you for
the dedication to these wonderful animals that deserve a loving home.

Adopt-A-Pet: That's easy! Why NOT? The more your pets are seen, the better chances

Adopt-a-Pet.com is AWESOME! I have had many views since posting my rescue babies
with them. I have adopted out recently, a special needs Beagle mix named Sandy
who only had one eye. She found a wonderful home and I look forward to finding
many more wonderful homes for the ones who have no voice. Thank You Adopt-a-Pet.com
for being their voices!

Midwest Rescue of Illinois, Inc
Hoffman Estates, IL
Adopt-a-Pet.com has been an excellent way to find homes for our homeless pet.
It's user friendly, and very efficient. It a wonderful way to help you find volunteers
and it's a great networking system.
A picture is worth a thousand words. It's great to come to work in the morning
and find multiple e-mails or calls from people that have fallen in love with a
dog or cat from a picture. It gives us the opportunity to provide follow up information
and invite the potential adopter to come and meet a deserving companion animal.
It's not always the match that the adopter hoped for but many times they find another
animal at the shelter that IS the perfect match. With everyone using electronic
means to get the word out about adoptable animals, those that don't participate
are missing out on connecting with thousands of potential adopters. We all share
the mission to rehome these sweet animals and I applaud the success of every shelter
that takes the time to post pictures and provide descriptions. Together we make
Pasco County Animal Services
Land O' Lakes, FL
I get as many emails from Adopt-a-Pet.com site as I do from the other pet adoption
websites, and they aren't the same people. There is a large group of people who
use this site and I have been able to adopt out double the dogs as before.
I highly recommend using Adopt-a-Pet.com to try to place your rescues. We just
recently started using this site and after posting a puppymill cocker spaniel survivor
found a home for her within two weeks. This site is easy to use and you can make
changes any time. I get a weekly report of which dogs have been viewed which helps
me in making changes to their description bio if need be.
Mini Mutts Rescue
With the current economy and bankruptcy on homes and job closings it is heartbreaking
to see so many animals being left behind in homes without a place to go. We have
witnessed many of these little animals left behind and a neighbor that is already
to their limit, the realtor or bank finds the animal(s) about starved to death
and brings them to the local Shelters. The poor little animals have the look that
they understand what has happened by the abandonment and all they want is a home
to love and nourish their little bodies that won't make them feel as no one loves
them. I can't even start to imagine being left in a cold empty house in the winter,
but also to be faced in a cage waiting for a day of death at High kill shelters.
Adopt-a-Pet.com has reached out beyond our area to find the little ones homes.
Thank you for remembering these little ones by giving Your time and Hard work to
saving lives and Thank You to all the adopting families that make a big differnce
in rescuing these little lives! We are able to pull cats and dogs out into foster
homes locally and give them the health care including spay/neuter Encouragement
and Love. They then are placed on adopt a pet and find forever homes that change
lives all over the world!
Spare Cat Rescue
We had our best adoption day ever yesterday. People were lined up when we opened
and we had 10 adoptions -- including two senior cats, a mother and daughter, who
had been in our system quite a while. They were adopted together by a wonderful
couple who fell in love at first sight. The greater the exposure we have on pet
adoption sites, the more cats and kittens find good homes. It was a great day --
and we hope for more of the same. Thanks a lot, Adopt-a-Pet.com.
Refuge pour chats de Verdun
We have been very happy with the results from using this website. Our animal
get seen more than they ever would before. I would recommend using this site for
any rescue or shelter.
Sarah Van Orden
Selina Memorial Animal Rescue
We get a lot of inquiries from the Adopt-a-Pet.com website and most of them result
in excellent homes for our dogs. Thanks for all you do and keep up the good work.
Cocker Spaniel Rescue
Although we have our own website to post our adoptable pets on, ADOPT-A-PET.COM
reaches out to millions! Some of our best placements are through ADOPT-A-PET.COM.
It's quite obvious homes reaching out to rescues for a family member, search ADOPT-A-PET.COM.
WE LOVE HAVING SUCH A GREAT WEBSITE THAT REACHES SO MANY.
All Miniature Pinscher Service Inc.
I love using Adopt-a-Pet.com for many reasons. I receive a lot of calls for the
pets we have posted on this website. Many of our adopters have seen our pets on
the website. I love the reports as to which pets are being seen and how often.
It gives me a chance to change the pictures around and see if we get more hits
because of it.
Long Beach Humane Society
Long Beach, NY
I would say our stats for hits tells a good part of the story. We get a lot of
adoptions from people seeing us on the internet. I do believe it has added substantially
to our adoptions. We have adopted over 1600 dogs in 4 1/2 years and I believe since
we have been on the web, it has helped us reach these great figures. We have done
more since on the internet. Thank you all so much for helping us to expose our
