SNAP adoption services include posting information about each pet on our website, in our e-newsletters, on our Facebook page, in other social media, and to dozens of animal rescue and adoption network sites.

Writing a bio or short description for each cat or dog is a critical part of this process and is a huge help as a volunteer service.

Typical pet bios are about 100-200 words and take a short time to write. Based on the basic pet profile we provide you – see some current bios here – a bio includes a physical description of the animal, tells a story of the animal’s history and personality, and explains what kind of home would be in the animal’s best interest.

We provide the basic information and guidance and samples of how to write a good bio and rely on our writer-volunteers to fashion a compelling short story that highlights the unique and special character of these deserving pets looking for forever homes.

A good bio not only tells about the animal, but gives potential owners insight into whether that individual animal and the prospective owner are a good fit. A good bio not only puts the animal’s best paw forward, but also concisely tells perspective owners the details of the pet they are considering.

So, release your inner Hemingway and help us write some great American prose and a good yarn about our favorite cats (polydactyl or otherwise) and dogs.
