This article is for shelters and rescues who use software to import/AutoUpload pets to Adopt a Pet.
After you add or change a pet in your software, it takes time for it show up on the Adopt a Pet website. How long it takes depends mostly on two factors:
1) How often your software uploads. Some software uploads every hour. Others upload once a day, twice a day, or four times a day.
2) How much previously uploaded data our site is processing at that moment. Our processors are running 24/7. They might process your data within minutes, or if many other accounts have uploaded a lot of data just before you, it might take hours for them to get to your data in the queue.
For software that uses our AutoUpload service, you can check to see the time of your last process by clicking the Test Import Now button.
