Animal Shelter Software Buyers Guide

What is animal shelter software?

Animal shelter software is designed to help animal shelters, rescue groups, and animal control facilities optimize and manage their key operations, such as animal intake, care, licensing, and adoption management.

The benefits of animal shelter software:

  • Easy record management: Animal shelter software centralizes all animal-related information, such as medical history and adoption requests, in a single, organized place. This allows shelter managers and administrators to quickly and easily manage and access relevant records.
  • Streamlined reporting helps keep track of animals: Animal shelter software allows users to maintain comprehensive reporting of all animal intake, providing real-time visibility into total intake and the number of pets managed by an organization.

Typical features of animal shelter software:

  • Animal database: Store information about all animals under an organization's care in a central location.
  • Case management: Work on tasks related to a particular pet, patient, legal issue, etc.
  • Intake management: Manage workflows related to the initial admission of an animal into an organization's care.
  • Medical records: Record all medical information, including consultation, medication, and treatment history. 
  • Adoption management: Accept and process requests for pet adoption.
  • Volunteer management: Manage volunteer information and resources.

Considerations when purchasing animal shelter software

  • Specific needs and scalability: When evaluating software for purchase, it’s crucial to be mindful of your organization’s specific requirements (e.g., employee management functionality, daily statistics, real-time reporting, voucher programs, etc.). Be sure to consider your future needs, as well, to avoid having to reinvest in a new solution as your organization grows. 
  • Effective training and support: Training staff to effectively use whatever animal shelter software you invest in is crucial. Check with potential vendors about their training offerings, the solution’s learning curve, and what customer support they’ll provide post-purchase.
  • Tracking pet location and health information using wearables : The use of pet wearables (such as RFID tags and GPS collars) is growing significantly. The utility of such devices goes beyond identifying a pet’s location to tracking daily activities and vitals.
