Don’t be! Postcode searching has been a feature on PetRescue for more than a year, but previously postcodes have been automatically set to your group’s main address, regardless of where the pet was or where your adopters may come from.
The new postcode field allows you complete flexibility to select the most appropriate postcode for the pet you are listing. You might choose the actual location of the pet, your group’s location, the closest metro location - whatever works for your group and your pets!
Nothing else has changed. Adopters can still search by 50km, 100km, 250km, statewide or nationwide and ‘interstate adoptions’.
Tip: If you're having trouble placing a pet in your local area (and are happy to transport pets), try reaching a different audience by changing the postcode.
