The Adoptable Dog & Cat Finder Portal, which is integrated within the pet section of a city’s newspaper, allows potential adopters to search for dogs and cats by zip code, dog breed, age, coat length, and even name. Since its launch, potential dog and cat adopters have generated over 8 million pageviews2.
