Add pets in a different location (zip code)

Q: We have dogs fostered and for adoption all over North America.  When I add them to your site, they all come up under the same location. Can I enter them so they will show up for people searching near the foster's location? 

A: Yes! To list pets in different zip codes, you create a location account for each zip code:

1. Log in to your existing Adopt-a-Pet.com account

2. Select "Sign Up a new Shelter/Rescue/Location" from the Shelter/Rescue menu

3. Shelter/Rescue Name
Type in a unique identifier. Example: If your main account is "Woofy's Rescue" you could type "Woofy's Rescue - West
 
4.  Address (visible to public)" type the City, State and Zip / Postal where you want your pets to appear in search results. See Important Notes below.
 
5. Fill in the rest of the form. Click "Add Shelter/Rescue" button at the bottom. 
 
6. You will then be in account preview mode. We review and approve new location accounts within 4 business days. You can add pets to the new location account while you wait for us to approve it.
 
Or..
 
Click on Admin Home to switch back into your already-approved location. 
 
HOW TO SWITCH BETWEEN LOCATIONS
 
After you add a location, on your Admin Home page, use the switch menu:
 
IMPORTANT NOTES:
 
  • Pets can not be moved or copied between locations. Each location account functions as a separate account. To "move" a pet, add the pet to that location account, switch to the other location, and delete it from the prior account. 

  • Do NOT duplicate list the same pets within 250 miles (as a bird flies) of each other. 

  • If you use software that supports different pet locations, AutoUploading can also be set up on each account. Contact your software provider or us for instructions.
