How do I write a good biography about my pet?
When writing a profile for your pet who needs a new home, you might be tempted to share all the reasons why you are rehoming your pet or share all the “negative” information up front. Not necessary! Always be honest but always remain positive. Think of the personality profile like your pet’s resume and try to put their best paw forward!
It’s important to remember that what might be negative to you may not matter to others. For example, a dog who does not like cats might make a perfect pet for someone with a cat allergy! Also, remember that the word “children” has a different meaning to everyone. Someone might consider an 18-year-old a “child” and see “no children” as a reason they cannot adopt, but your pet might only need a home without toddlers. Use the profile to showcase your pet, and then discuss more details with a potential adopter when they call.
Here are some tips to keep your profile positive!
Needs a lot of exercise... "Will make a great running buddy!"
Is aggressive towards children... "Would do great with a mature family"
Needs a lot of attention... "Loves to be around people"
Doesn't get along with cats/dogs... "Would love to be the center of attention"
