Your RescueGroups.org account is able to upload your adoptable pet data to the Adopt-a-Pet.com website.

In order to upload your pets to Adopt-a-Pet.com you must first have an account with them.  If you don't already have one please visit their website to sign-up, and continue this setup process after you have an approved account.

It's very important that you ensure that all of your pets are added to your RescueGroups.org pet list before enabling the import in your Adopt-a-Pet.com account. Once you enable the Adopt-a-Pet.com account, all pets, including available and adopted, will be deleted and replaced with the available pets from your RescueGroups.org pet list.

If you'd like to add the pets from your Adopt-a-Pet.com to your RescueGroups.org account, or if you'd like to have your Adopt-a-Pet.com pets in a data file for backup purposes please contact Support before you setup the import from RescueGroups.org.

If you are unsure, please contact RescueGroups.org Support before continuing.
