Petstablished can automatically upload (add) and update (edit/remove) your adoptable pets on your account. Here's how to set that up.

IMPORTANT NOTES: The first upload from Petstablished (or any software) will permanently erase ALL your pet data on your account, including any adopted pets, adopter info, and microchip info. Please proceed carefully!

#2: If you are already uploading from another software or service, you must CONTACT THEM prior to making these changes.

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

2. From "Shelter/Rescue" in the green navigation bar on top, select “AutoUpload/Import Pets”


3. If this is your first setup, Select Software Provider "Petstablished" and click continue.

4. Select the following options to enable AutoUploading: 

  • Select "Petstablished" from the Select the default profile dropdown like this:

    That autofills the options below. KEEP THE OPTIONS AS-IS or it will not work correctly!

  • Do you want to allow your shelter/rescue to AutoUpload? 
    Yes (this enables uploading)

  • Allow manually added pets?
    No (if you select yes, your software will only add pets, not remove them)

  • Allow manual editing of pets?
    No (if you select yes, your software will only add pets, not remove them)

  • Does your exported data file contain a first line with column headers? 

  • Do you want import acceptable pets, even if there are processing errors with other pets?

5. Click the Set-Up (or update) button.

6. Your unique FTP login will be displayed. Save this information.

7. Enter in your unique FTP login information in account number and password field on the exports and iframes page of your Petstablished dashboard.

8. You need at least one "AutoUpload Contact" on your account for uploading to run. That person will get any error emails, not more than once every 12 hours. They can then contact Petstablished to address any errors. If you are not the AutoUpload contact, ask that person to log in using their Pet Publicist login, or if they don't have a login, add one for them. Click "My Info" and then "My Pet Publicist/Admin Info" i.e.

 Check the checkbox for:

 I am an AutoUpload contact for this shelter/rescue.

Then click the "Update My Info" button.


That's it!
