Seminole Country Animal Services does a nose-to inventory match-up every day to ensure every animal is receiving what he or she needs to stay healthy during their stay. This practice helps the agency keep their paperwork and online information in sync.
When doing their daily inventory, staff at the Florida agency print off the animal photos from their website and bring along a copy of the Animal Inventory Report. Having a visual of each animal makes it easier to match up names and numbers to noses, provides the opportunity to sync up the information available on the Web to what’s in your database, and serves as a reminder to keep the information and photos on the Web fresh and up-to-date.
Now You Try It:
Print copies of your animals’ photos from your website, Petfinder or Facebook page and take them with you when you do your daily inventory.
Make notes on the Animal Inventory Report about any updates that need to be made in your shelter database and make notes on the printed Web pictures of any changes to be made on your online channels.
Finish up by logging in and making those updates/changes.
