Use the Add an Animal page to add new animals to your account. Remember that animals which are available for adoption are exported to the adoption listing websites and show up on your RescueGroups.org account automatically after you add them. Once animals are added, you can start managing the information about them. Animals available for adoption are exported to the adoption listing websites.
The Animals menu allows you to add animals and manage information available about them. Once an animal is added, you can edit the description, delete them from your account, set their status to Available, and when adopted, change their status to Adopted, using the selections in the Animals menu.
And of course, there's a video we'd like you to see:

Where do I find it?
Once you log in to your account from https://rescuegroups.org, select Animals at the top of the screen. From the pull-down menu, select Add an Animal.
Adding user roles for your volunteers
See the chapter About Roles, Security, and Permissions for more information about the roles for your volunteers. There are three primary roles associated with adding an animal:
- The Animal Admin role allows that volunteer to manage everything about all of the animals in the organization.
- The Animal Add role allows that volunteer to add animals.
- The Animal Foster Update allows that volunteer to manage all the information about their own foster animals.
We recommend you grant your trusted fosters the ability to manage their own foster animals ( Animal Foster Update). You can remove that role when they leave your organization. We also recommend that you have at least one volunteer with the role of Animal Admin. That person can oversee all the information about all the animals.
Finding the "Add an animal" feature
There are four ways to find the Add an Animal feature.
To help you add animals faster, you may want to create one or more Animal Templates. Using the templates will fill in some of the fields for you automatically. See the How to use templates section later in this Guide.
