Animals Entered into Shelter Exchange Now Automatically Uploaded to Adopt-a-Pet.com, Saving Time and Saving Lives
January 30th 2012, Raleigh, NC – A new partnership was announced this week in the animal welfare community between Shelter Exchange and Adopt-a-Pet.com (formerly 1-800-Save-A-Pet.com.) This new collaboration between these two organizations provides the ability to help the growing number of homeless animals in the USA to find adoptive families through extensive outreach to shelters, rescues and the general public.
Shelter Exchange, a non-profit organization that provides a life saving web application to shelters and rescue groups at no cost, saw this partnership as a perfect match. ‘We are thrilled to have partnered with Adopt-a-Pet.com,” said Claire Bokor, Founder of Shelter Exchange. “Every adoptable animal entered into Shelter Exchange can now be automatically uploaded to Adopt-a-Pet.com. This provides a huge time savings for shelters and rescues groups, and the animals are gaining so much more exposure on additional adoption websites.”
Shelter Exchange burst onto the animal welfare scene in September 2011 armed with a free web-based solution that every shelter and rescue group in the USA can use. In just four months, more than 200 shelters and rescue groups have started using Shelter Exchange’s solution, enabling over 300 adoptions of homeless animals.
