"The web site is free, right? So why do I need to join? "
MetroPets is a fledgling organization. Founded in 1999, it has been established with volunteers' personal funds and hundreds of donated hours of work. However, despite this generosity, there are real world costs associated with providing a free web site and free technical services to the shelters and animal rescue groups. We won't be able to continue without your support.

Does MetroPets really help the homeless pets?
Absolutely! We get regular feedback from rescue groups whose animals have been adopted as a result of having been seen on our site or found through our search engine. We also believe strongly in supporting the groups who already exist through technical assistance and through promoting their adoption events and their special pets in need on our site. We are always looking for new ways to help promote the local shelters and rescue groups.

"What do I get out of supporting Metropets?"
MetroPets wants its supporters to feel that they are part of a vital and swiftly growing movement to exploit technology to the fullest to get more animals adopted, see fewer and fewer healthy and loving animals euthanized, and include more and more members of the community in this process. To that end, MetroPets organizes regular events and informative lectures, sends out a quarterly e-newsletter with local pet news, provides a members-only listserv, and offers supporters the opportunity to feature their beloved pets online.

"Benefits to Business and Organizations"
We list all businesses and organizations on our web site at no cost, because we believe the web site is there to serve the public. However, we do encourage those who benefit from being on our site to lend us a helping hand by joining us a member. Joining as a business member is beneficial to you! It gives you more exposure on our web site; we list you on our front page for a month after you join, and you are also listed on our business supporters page, and have an icon next to your name on the site, which draws more attention to your listing.
