Lap Dog Rescue of New Mexico: Petfinder Adoption Options in Action Grant (Invitation Only)
Customization and implementation of a new automated dog- and application-tracking computer system for our rescue. Our volunteer-only, foster-based rescue has gone from rescuing and rehoming fewer than 150 small dogs to 600 in a relatively short period of time.
This system enables us to do the following:
- Be more efficient in our tracking of dogs as they enter our process for foster assignments, medical care and adoptions
- Enable our fosters to review applications in a timely manner to ensure the best home for each dog
- Increase adoptions
- Reduce returns
- Rescue more dogs
Difficult to quanitfy at this time as we just went live with this program on 9/1
Sweetie was an owner surrender whose owners had died and their family did not want this sweet dog. We were informed that she was up-to-date on shots, spayed and free of medical issues -- which could not have been further from the truth. We got all of her medical issues taken care of and were quickly able to get her adopted into a new home. In the last photo, she's pictured on the left with her new family and twinsie fur sibling.
