It’s not exactly a new trick to help a pet get a new lease on life.
But Craigslist, a popular platform for online classifieds, may soon be allowing its members to make it easier for pets to find their new homes.
A new update to the platform on Tuesday enables members to add their pet’s name and contact information to an application, giving pets a new way to find a new home, even if they’re not able to show up for their regular appointment.
“The feature is designed to make the process of finding a new pet even easier,” said the company’s marketing director, David Miller, in a statement.
“By allowing you to add a pet’s pet-specific information to your listing, it can help you get a closer look at the pets you own.”
The company will also add more ways for pets on the platform to connect with their owners.
“This feature makes it easier to connect your pets with their new owners,” Miller said.
The new feature has been a hit on the website, with many pet owners sharing how they’ve gotten the pets attention. “
With this update, we’re making the process easier for you to get your pets’ attention again.”

“I found out I had a pet on Craigslist when a neighbor came into my house to tell me they had lost her dog, and I went straight to Craigslist to find it,” said one woman on the site.
“All the other pet sites seemed to have lost their ability to find pets.
Craigslist made it easier.”
The update to Craigslist is just the latest in a series of updates that are part of the company and its growing push to connect people with pets.
The platform, founded in 2004, has seen an explosion of content over the past few years, including pet videos and animal-related ads.
In 2017, the company rolled out a free mobile app that lets members search through a massive catalog of pets, videos, and other pets.
