    I have searched the threads in Technology and if this question has been extensively discussed, I can't find it.  We are currently using Shelter Pro and find it very difficult to navigate, not intuitive, and certainly not easy to produce reports.  What software are you currently using? What are the pros and cons?  I would love if you can answer here in the forum.  Alot of the threads I found said "PM me for details", but it seems like there would be benefit to it being here in the public view.  If there is a thread that already answers this, please direct me to the appropriate tab.  I'm new to the forum and maybe I just don't know where to look.  Thank you in advance.

    Hi WCAC,


    How big is your org? Are you rescue or do you have a physical shelter? What features are most important to you in software.   When we had a foster based adoption program, I used Shelterluv and really like it.  but can comment more depending on what you want/need and are looking for.

    We are a county facility, open intake with around 4000 animals annually.  We do need an enforcement function in the software so ShelterLuv might not be the one for us.  I understand they may be adding an enforcement piece but it's not there yet.

    Have you checked out Animal Shelter Manager?  It works very well for us. We take in over 2,200 per year.

    Hi WCAC - What software did you end up going with? We are in the same situation.
