Search for Pets from Animal Shelters on Kijiji

We’re pleased to announce a new feature on Kijiji that lets you search and sort for pets only from Animal Shelters.

As a way to increase the visibility of our friends and partners at Animal Shelters, we’ve teamed with Petfinder and started importing their shelter ads into our site. This partnership allows us access to Petfinder’s 13,000 animal shelters from across North America and import ads from shelters in local communities.

You can find the attribute ‘Shelter‘ under the ‘Offered by‘ section in the left sub-navigation of the site. When you choose it, you’ll be taken to a page that shows just shelter ads, as shown here.

The Shelters information will be listed on the top right under ‘Poster Contact Information‘, and you can view all of the ads posted by that shelter on Kijiji.

Here’s an Example of Golden Rescue’s Page which shows all of their current ads:

We hope that this feature will increase the visibility to Shelters and animals that are in need of rehoming. These special animals need our attention and we’ll be working to add more ads and shelters to our site where possible.

As an extension to this, last week we added a new tab on all ads appearing in ‘dogs, puppies for sale‘ and ‘cats, kittens for sale‘. This tab shows a section called ‘Rehoming & Adoption‘ and features some general information to consider before taking on a new animal. We also feature some of our Animal Shelter Partners on this page, and will be working to add more information about this topic into the tab as we build it.

Rehoming & Adaption tab - Ownership information and Links to Animal Shelters

We’re pleased with the progress we’ve been making in this space, but there’s still lots to improve on. This week, we have two of our staff meeting with the OSPCA and industry partners to better understand things like breeder legislation and help with the creation of a industry code of conduct that we can use as guideline toward policies and practices on the site.  We feel that working with the Animal Shelters to understand and use their standards around adoption and ownership will be a great way to ensure we adhere to industry leading best practices, ethics and integrity in this space.

  1. At your meeting with OSPCA,
    Please ask about the best methods to reunite lost pets with their owners and Advertise that !
    I see way too many Lost and Found pet ads listed in different categories with terrible descriptions.
    If PETLYNX is the National Database, why is it not advertised more ?
    Obviously microchips and tagging are a good start to identifying a lost pet that has been found,
    but if the pet is wandering lost, the public needs to be better educated on the best methods they should use
    to recover their animal. Including a dedicated category on Kijiji .

  2. Please keep in mind that even shelters are supposed to post their pet establishment license number in New Brunswick. That is your assurance that you are dealing with a legitimate shelter that meets or exceeds the minimum standards for a pet establishment.

  3. Goodness! I'm sorry if you found comment of mine was incorrect or out of line. If you could be more specific, I'd be glad to discuss your particular issue with you. Thank you for the award and the compliment, there's few things more useful than a tool. 8-)

  31. Stop selling puppies kijiji , only accept “registered shelter” only only.
    because right now you are the biggest supporters of puppymills of Canada. The worst part about this is your greed is over taking your common sense about it. Also just like the scammers from Camaroon the puppymills have staff with different emails and IP’s to pretend they only have a few breeds but kjijiji fails to knowledge that puppymills can fool)your staff (not that hard to do) with the tools and the limited info they get from the head office.
