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, like if you have a foster home in a different area, each zip code needs to have a separate account, and the pet needs to be listed on that account.

So that you can use the same login and switch between accounts without having to log out and log in again, here's how to create a new location account:

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, here's a direct link to that page: https://www.adoptapet.com/cgi-bin/shelter/shelter.cgi/shelter_add_form

3. In the form field for 
Shelter/Rescue Name
make sure you add a unique identifier to your organization's name, so you can see to switch between accounts. Example: "Woofy Rescue" could use "Woofy Rescue - West" for another location account name. 
 
4. In the "2. Address (visible to public)" section, type the City, State and Zip / Postal where you want your pets to appear in search results. 
 
5. Fill out the rest of the form, and click the Add Shelter/Rescue button at the bottom. 
 
6. You will now be in the preview mode for that new location account. We will review and approve new location accounts within 2-3 business days.
 
7. You can add pets to the new location account now, while you wait for us to approve it.
 
Or..
 
You can click on Admin Home to get back into your already-approved accounts. You will need to be in an approved account to add more locations, for example.
 
 
HOW TO SWITCH BETWEEN LOCATIONS
 
After you add a location, on your Admin Home page, you will see a 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 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.
