New Online Community Provides Lifesaving Option to Local Pets in Need of Re-Homing
Getyourpet.com is supporting Philadoptables’ mission to save lives and build a better community by keeping dogs and cats out of the shelters. Get Your Pet is an online community that directly connects people who need to give up a pet with people who want to adopt a pet. It’s a simpler, smarter, and more humane way to adopt.
Animal shelter euthanasia remains the leading cause of death for dogs and cats in the U.S., killing more pets than any known disease. Last year alone, Philadelphia shelters euthanized more than 10,000 animals.
“We are thrilled to support Philadoptables’ mission and to help pets go from one good home to another,” said Get Your Pet Founder and life-long animal welfare advocate, Angela Marcus. “Get Your Pet will prevent thousands of dogs and cats from entering the stressful animal shelter environment, where they are exposed to illness and the possibility of being euthanized.”
Get Your Pet offers people who need to give up their pet (Guardians), the opportunity to post their pet’s picture with a profile on the site at no cost. Those who want to adopt (Adopters) can freely browse up to date pet profiles until they find a pet they want to meet. For more on Get Your Pet and how it works without shelter surrender visit HERE.
“We look forward to having our foster communities use Get Your Pet as a resource to help get pets adopted faster and find them forever homes,” said Michelle Helms, president and founder of Philadoptables. “Together, we hope to keep more pets out of the shelter in 2017.”
Getyourpet.com recently launched in the greater Philadelphia first, with other regions of the U.S. soon to follow. A portion of the proceeds from Get Your Pet will benefit local animal shelters.
