We’re serious about giving you control of your data exports

Tired of suddenly finding your organization's animals and information on a website you would rather not be associated with?

We find it very upsetting that some companies believe that they own your organization data and can do anything they want with it, with no regard to what you believe is best for your organization and pets.

We've already talked about how classifieds websites are often used to make money for everyone other than your organization and pets.

But the issue isn't really about one specific type of service or website -- it's about giving your organization control over where their pets and information show up.

That is why we go to great lengths to not only tell you where your information is going, but also give you as much control of those exports as possible.

And now we've increased your control to an even higher level.

You now have control over which websites and services receive your information from the very beginning.  You can now opt-out by website/service category before the new service starts to receive any data from RescueGroups.org.

For example, you might decide that you do not want your organization to appear on any websites or services that have classifieds.  If you make that selection in your RescueGroups.org account, if a new service that includes classifieds starts receiving data from us, your organization will be automatically excluded.

You can still opt-in or opt-out of exports individually at any time.

For more information about this new capability, please see your Animals > Exports > Settings page on the Manage website, and read the following User Guide article (the option is at the bottom of the page):


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact RescueGroups.org support.

Thank you.
