Enhancements to Auto-Import

by Kristen

Exciting News from Petfinder!

 

Petfinder Members using auto-import,

As part of our on-going efforts to make Petfinder an even stronger tool for our members and your adoptable pets, we are thrilled to announce an enhanced auto-import!

We know that many of you rely on our auto-import tool to keep your pets posted and up-to-date on Petfinder. In the past, it may have taken some time for you to see changes you made to your pets through your shelter software reflected on our website. We are very pleased to let you know that our enhanced import now updates in nearly real-time! Changes such as newly added pets, removed pet listings, photos and more should be reflected on Petfinder within roughly 5 minutes.

In addition to improving the speed of our auto-import tool, it is also able to update more information about your adoptable pets! Our import can now accommodate up to six photos per pet, color, adoption fee and more. Please see the information below for details on all newly supported fields.
