How do I set up uploads to multiple Petfinder, Adopt-a-Pet, or RescueGroups accounts?

  • Updated

If you have multiple locations or foster homes spread out across different regions, you may want to be able to set up multiple aggregator accounts and upload animals to a certain account. You can do this in Shelterluv by configuring separate "Upload Sites" in Configuration > General Shelter > Uploads and Integrations > Aggregators of Adoptable Animals.

Configuration

Every Shelterluv account will start with a "Primary Site." You can decide which of your aggregator accounts will correspond to the primary site. Each publishable animal will be associated with the primary site by default to start - see the "Animal Records" section below for how to edit this on each animal record. 

To start, you can re-name the default "Primary Site" with the name of the aggregator account that it will refer to by clicking on "Set Nickname."

Then you can add an additional Upload Site that corresponds to each of your aggregator accounts. You can name them in a way that will make sense to your staff when they're selecting which animals should be uploaded to which account.

When you add additional Upload Sites, you'll see that an additional set of credentials are displayed for configuring for Petfinder, Adopt-a-Pet and RescueGroups. In order to enable uploads for each individual account, you'll need to set each to "enabled" and save credentials for each separately.

Animal Records

Once you have your accounts set up as "Upload Sites" in Configuration, you can select the upload site that you would like each animal to be uploaded to. From each animal record, you'll find a new subtab called "Aggregator Uploads" under the Processing tab. 

The default for every animal will be the "Primary Site" to start. You can edit this by clicking on the field and choosing the correct site from the drop-down. That animal will be uploaded to that particular aggregator account.
