What pet rescues and shelters face
The pet breeding industry is thriving today and is one of the fastest-growing home markets. In the past five years, the number of pet breeders has increased by at least 20 percent. Breeding efforts are resulting in more and more people buying pets that later become unwanted. These unwanted pets end up in shelters and rescues. Unfortunately, many of these unwanted pets perish due to a lack of public interest in adoption. Pet rescues and pet shelters need to work on educating the public and increasing exposure to potential adopters
Benefits of a website
Pet rescues and pet shelters should not underestimate the power of an online presence. A simple and professional website will increase your rescue or shelter's exposure to potential pet adopters. A website doesn't need to be expensive, graphics-heavy, or fancy, a simple site will do as long as it is easily maintained and will encourage interaction between potential adopters and a pet rescue or shelter.
