Evidence of Impact

There are no summaries available for this organization.

Technological developments to provide people a national database to assist people to find pets for adoption Nonprofit Senior Staff
The Petfinder.com Foundation makes it possible for thousands of dogs to get adopted - those who had next to no chance of being found through local pet fairs and individual websites. They provide grants to other nonprofits. Via their website, we get hundreds of hits more per week than we ever did on our own website alone. Nonprofit Senior Staff

Organizational Strengths

There are no summaries available for this organization.

Honestly, I'm not privy to this level of their information. Their website and search engine are very user-friendly. It's an invaluable service. Nonprofit Senior Staff

Areas for Improvement

There are no summaries available for this organization.

They could benefit from having a more studied approach on the next step to provide a national database to search assist in other areas like rehoming pets directly (keeping them out of animal shelters) or re-uniting lost pets. Also, technology improvements are necessary to enhance fundraising and outreach programs/coordination with external organizations. Nonprofit Senior Staff
There are some tweaks I'd make to the user interface, and I'd add some more breeds and categories for the search engines to use. For instance, they only list "schnauzer" as a breed rather than allowing for miniature, standard and giant. There are several other breeds that are in similar need. I would also suggest adding a search criterion such as "non-shed" or "hypoallergenic." Nonprofit Senior Staff
