Read About Add Your Shelter to a Pet Adoption List

Add Your Shelter to a Pet Adoption List and you will have willing people come to you to get a pet they really need. Here's everything you need to know about adoption.

Add Your Shelter to a Pet Adoption List -- Reasons and Facts

  1. Why Adopt:

    There have been several unfortunate instances when an owner cannot keep up with a pet and has abandoned it. Such pets cannot cope with the harshness of outdoor life after having lived in a comfortable sheltered environment. Pet rescue shelters take such pets and give them to people who want a pet. Adopting a pet gives a homeless pet a new home.
  2. What Pet to Adopt:

    Nearly any pet can be adopted from a shelter.
  3. When to Adopt:

    Pets are rescued and put up for adoption all through the year.

Add Your Shelter to a Pet Adoption List -- Where to Look

  1. Online:

    What you can do is, put up an internet ad for people who wish to give up their pets. You can then take these pets into your shelter. Then you can make a site and link it to several other prominent sites.
  2. Classifieds:

    You can also place an ad in newspapers or pet magazines for people who need to give up their pets.
  3. Pet Shows:

    You won't be able to get any rescued pets in a pet show. If you are planning to have your own pet shelter, visiting a pet show will not contribute anything.
  4. Local Vet:

    The local vet may be the best source of information. They can guide you with the correct procedure, and that includes how to add your pet shelter to a reputable pet adoption list.

Add Your Shelter to a Pet Adoption List -- What to Look For

  1. Pet Temperament:

    You will get pets with many different temperaments. You will have to learn to cope up with their natures and tell their buyers about their characteristics.
  2. Pet's Surroundings:

    Your rescue shelter needs to be a big, clean, airy and hygienic place. No big organizations will enlist your shelter if it is mangy. Even prospective buyers will shirk away.
  3. Pet's Health:

    You will have to take very good care of the pets' health as long as they are in your shelter. Keep all their papers intact. Buyers will want to see them before making the final deal.
  4. What to Avoid:

    Avoid publicizing your shelter too widely. What will happen is a barrage of prospective customers, and you will not have the means to satisfy all of them. Always work within your means.

Add Your Shelter to a Pet Adoption List -- How to Choose

  1. Type of Pet:

    Initially, you should keep only a few types of pet in your rescue shelter. Slowly, as you learn, and get more staff, you can begin keeping other animals.
  2. Supplies & Equipment:

    You will need all animal supplies for each and every pet. Give them several toys and plenty of exercise equipment so that they remain fit when buyers come to see them.
  3. Expense:

    The expense in adding your pet shelter to a pet adoption list will depend on how big the shelter is, and what list you add your shelter to.
