You can use a custom iframe to post a list of adopted animals or even those that have been returned to their owners on a separate page of your organization's website.

Follow the steps below to get started!

Create your custom report

First, start by building a Custom Entities Animals in Custody Report including a rule for Status = Healthy in Home. The report columns do not need to be customized as they do not impact the animal detail that shows in the iframe. Once you have the report created, save it so you can use it each time you want to update the animals that are displayed on your site.

For more details on running custom reports, please review this Help Center article: How do I run custom reports?



Generate your custom iframe code snippet

Now that your custom report is built and saved, you can generate the custom iframe code. To do this, go to the "My Saved Reports" tab, select the white down arrow on the right-hand side in the green "Run Report" button, then select "Generate Embeddable Snippet. This will generate a pop-up window where you can enter your preferred date range (we recommend doing this on a monthly basis, but any date range in the past can be selected). Once you press save, the code will appear which you can have your developer use on your website page listing these animals. Some organizations will call this page "Happy Tails" or "Happily at Home."




Unfortunately, it is not possible to have this process run automatically since you will have to re-generate code each time you want to update the animals that are displaying on your website for the past month. However, it is a quick process once you have the page and iFrame set up, as well as have the report saved so all you need to do is run the report with your new date range and swap out the code.

If preferred, you can explore using the Shelterluv API if you are able to hire a developer to build a more custom site for you.
