Q: We love your site and now we are getting so many email inquiries asking about our pets, our volunteers are struggling to keep up! Is there a way we can change the "Ask About Me" button to go to our adoption process page which includes our adoption hours and application, instead of emailing us?
A: To list pets on Adopt-a-Pet.com we do require you have a way for potential adopters to contact you, either by email, phone, or both.
Two ideas that other shelters and rescues use and tell us really help:
1. Using an inquiry email address with an auto-reply. In the autoreply type out instructions, such as what are their next steps to adopt. NOTE: Test that your email service autoreply will work with our inquiry form after you set that up by sending yourself a test inquiry. Some email services have chosen to have their autorepliers ignore 'replyto' email addresses.
Your inquiry email is the "Shelter E-mail" you typed in when you signed up, or if you select a Pet Contact that overrides the default email. You can see and change your default email on your My Shelter/Rescue Info page. Changes are made instantly on all your pet listings for that account. If you have multiple accounts/locations, you will need to update the email on each account.
