Petfinder Pro March Newsletter
Dear Petfinder Members,

We are so thankful many of our members took the time to complete the 2014 Petfinder Member Annual Survey. We had a great response! Our team is analyzing the results and we look forward to sharing them back with you.

Being the largest network of animal welfare organizations and the home of your adoptable pets online, Petfinder is in a unique position to learn adoption insights. When potential adopters come to Petfinder, most spend more than five minutes checking out the site and your adoptable pets. Just under half of our visitors are coming to Petfinder from a desktop computer, while the rest visit through their tablet or mobile device.

More than 70% of Petfinder visitors are spending their time searching for pets and viewing pets, while the rest are viewing pet care content and videos. When searching, 89% of visitors are selecting a specific species while just over half are looking for a specific breed, particularly when viewing adoptable dogs. Our top 10 searched dog breeds include German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Poodles, Labradors, Pit Bull Terriers and Chihuahuas.

We will have more insights available to share with you from our annual member survey in the April issue of the Petfinder Pro Newsletter. Stay tuned!

Happy adoptions!

Director of Shelter Outreach, Petfinder Nestlé Purina Petcare
