The results of the Adoptimize 2021 Impact Study are in and the proof is in the holiday pudding, good photos online save the lives of dogs and cats.
Adoptimize is a shelter software that generates high-quality pet photos in seconds. The Adoptimize 2021 Impact Study analyzed over 40,000 animals in 14 shelters from March to September of 2021. The analysis, which reviewed shelters with intakes ranging from 1,300 to 40,000 dogs and cats per year, compared the outcome data of animals that leveraged Adoptimized photos versus those that did not.
The findings showcase the power of Adoptimize to drive positive outcomes for shelters.
When represented by Adoptimize photos, dogs saw an 81% higher adoption rate, and cats saw a 44% higher adoption rate.
In addition to higher adoption rates, the study also found an increase in live release rates in 2021. Adoptimize dogs had a 22% higher live release rate, and Adoptimize cats had a 6% higher live release rate, as compared to animals without Adoptimize photos.
With Adoptimize, more pets are adopted, rescued, transferred, or returned home each year.
