PetRescue’s new time-saving AI feature revolutionising pet profiles
PetRescue's AI-powered feature is designed to help write a pet’s adoption profile! Relieving workloads for the PetRescue member community and speeding up the adoption process!
“Rescue organisations often struggle with limited resources, and writing engaging pet profile content can be a time-consuming task,” explained Pats, PetRescue’s Managing Director.
“Entering a few bullet points of a pet’s personality traits is all that’s needed for the AI Bot to generate a compelling profile in three-quarters of the time it would normally take. It saves pet rescue organisations time to focus on more important things, like rehabilitating the pets in their care and managing adoption enquiries to find good homes for pets.”
The AI feature helps rescue organisations save time and efficiently creates the draft with editable content for engaging and informative pet profiles that could increase the chances of pets finding homes faster.
"Tasks like creative writing can be time-consuming and stressful, especially for rescue organisations who are already stretched for resources. We want to help make things as easy as possible for the rescue community who are busy helping pets,” said Pats.
“As powerful as it is, the AI Bot could never replace the task completely because every pet is beautifully unique. But by reducing the time they spend writing pet profiles, rescuers can have more capacity to care for and help more pets, ultimately leading to more pets finding loving homes faster.”
Pilot AI feature released to PetRescue members for feedback.
After training the PetRescue AI Bot to learn how to write pet profiles, it’s since been released as a pilot feature to member rescue organisations to continue improving and developing its capability with use. PetRescue is inviting feedback from its Australian member rescue community during this early stage with plans to continue evolving the feature further into the future.
“The new feature is already receiving positive reviews from rescue organisations who have praised the simplicity and ease of use of the AI Bot. And as the feature continues to evolve with each use, it is set to become an even more valuable tool,” said Pats.
PetRescue member Maneki Neko Cat Rescue’s founder Samantha McKernan knows well how challenging and time-consuming it can be to write profiles for cats but understands the crucial role it plays in increasing the homeless kitties’ chances of being adopted.
“PetRescue's AI Bot is already making a significant impact and has the potential to save our volunteers so much time,” said Samantha.
“The bot generates a compelling profile that engages potential adopters from just a few key points describing the pet's personality. This frees up volunteers to focus on caring for cats in need. The AI Bot is a game-changer in our mission to support cat welfare and increase adoptions!”
Pats explained, “For pet profiles, we will keep training the bot to learn to optimise the language to best describe and bring out the best features for individual pets. Finding the most effective profile formula and including descriptive, emotive language that can increase the connection that a potential adopter can have with the pet to increase the chances of getting adopted.”
"We're excited to keep exploring the possibilities with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Innovations like the AI Bot that can help with time-consuming tasks will help transform the way we work, enabling the rescue community to help even more pets in need.”
The new AI Bot feature is just one of the many ways that PetRescue is leveraging the latest in technology to help find a home for every pet.
“We're only just scratching the surface with the technology! There are endless opportunities where it can help multiply capacity and ability to help more people and pets!” said Pats.
“AI can potentially help adopters show their best sides in their adoption applications as well. The area that we're exploring is being able to analyse the data at scale and identify trends and anomalies. Typically, translating data and insights into fast action takes a lot of time. Understanding the trends, changes, movements, and challenges helps us to ensure the work we do can help as many pets as possible.”
