A great profile is so important - it makes the adoption search joyful, and gives each pet the very best chance of connecting with a loving new home.
So without any further ado, here’s a handful of the clever, creative and heartwarming profiles that are making sure rescue pets shine in the pet search spotlight!

Videos are such a great way to get people falling in love with your pets, so don’t forget to add these when uploading your pet profiles.
Best use of a cat in a supporting snuggle role
Winky - Perth Rescue Angels
Aww! Showing off the snuggly side of rescue pets is sure to get hearts melting. It's also a really good way to show the potential of shy cats - the ones who tend to hide whenever new people rock up. A little patience and time, and voila! Proof that shy cats can become snuggle buddies, if given the chance.
Best use of not-so-subliminal messaging

Positivity for the win! Ain’t nobody gonna be feeling sad and sorry for this awesome catch. Way to make the adoption journey a joyous one, Dog Rescue Newcastle.
Most appropriate use of emojis

You can use emojis across lots of fields on pet profiles - pet name, best feature, and of course the main profile. They can make a big difference to engagement, so sprinkle freely for a little extra sparkle. 🌟✨

Working that punk piggie hairdo for maximum effect! It’s always great to have some fun with and highlight the features that make each pet so unique.
Best use of a boy band
