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 really important that you be sure you have added all of your pets to your RescueGroups.org pet list before enabling the import in your Adopt-a-Pet.com account, because when you do, 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.
Do the following to setup your export to Adopt-a-Pet.com and the import into their system:
- Login to your Adopt-a-Pet.com account.
- Click Shelter/Rescue > Manage My Auto-Upload Account from the menu.
- In the Select a default profile according to your shelter software drop down, select RescueGroups.org from the list.
