The Kalkaska Animal Shelter is Now on Petfinder

The cats and dogs who are housed at the Kalkaska County Animal Shelter have a much better chance of being adopted now that they are on Petfinder. Being on Petfinder allows their photos to go out to the public without someone having to come into the shelter to see them initially – and it also allows an animal to show up on a search if someone in the area (or farther away) is looking for a particular animal.

If there is someone in Flint looking for a female Beagle who is about 2 years old and they do a search, if Kalkaska has one, it will come up in that search. Or if someone is looking for a certain age or breed of a cat, the search will turn up animals that meet that criteria within a certain geographical area.

Congratulations to Kalkaska county to taking this next step so that their animals can reach a wider audience. The Kalkaska County animal shelter inhabitants made their debut on Petfinder on Wednesday, May 15th after their account was opened and their internet service was re-established. The internet was repaired at a considerable expense to Kalkaska County so that the shelter could participate in the Petfinder program. Sheriff David Israel had hoped to have the site up earlier and apologizes if the delay has caused any undo inconvenience to the citizens of Kalkaska County.

Their adoptable pet list is here.

Right now the Petfinder site is being updated by ACO Chuck Hill and Sarah Pickard. Hopefully with the help of volunteers, they can make a few improvements to the site in the near future including having biographies on the animals, better photos of the animals (not behind bars) possibly taken by volunteer photographers and they also need a Petfinder home page with their hours, directions, phone number, adoption fees and other shelter information.

All in all, this is a great improvement for the animals at the county shelter and will hopefully improve the adoption numbers for the shelter!
