Shelter Software Guide

Petfinder is freely available to all shelters and organizations with adoptable pets.  You can upload pets for free to Petfinder at any time using the Petfinder Pro Dashboard.  If you are looking to integrate shelter management software with Petfinder to automatically update your list, we have put together this guide, but you are always welcome to continue to manually upload pets for free

Welcome to the Petfinder Pro Guide to Animal Management Software.  There are many options from which to choose, with a range of features and costs.  Due to popular demand, we are proud to provide a tool to help you select the best animal management software program for your organization.

This online resource is designed to help you match the features you need to the products available and gives you the ability to compare price and functionality.  Many of these platforms allow you to automatically import your pets to Petfinder, making keeping an up-to-date list of pets easy regardless of your intake rate.  When you are ready to set-up an import from one of the software programs below to Petfinder, please email with a subject line of: Automatic Import.

We hope you will find this resource to be valuable in assisting you in all the great work that you do on behalf of animals.
