GRRNT's efforts to make a difference
Golden Retriever Rescue of North Texas (GRRNT), an all-volunteer organization, was incorporated in 1997 with the mission of rescuing, caring for, and placing Golden Retrievers in permanent, loving homes—as well as educating the public about responsible pet ownership and the unique qualities of the golden retriever breed. GRRNT believes that adoption is a commitment to treat the dog as a member of the family for the rest of the dog's life. They don't have or run a shelter or kennel, so all of their goldies are placed in loving foster homes until they're adopted.
The biggest challenge faced by GRRNT was carrying out all their adoption processes manually. Conducting the meet and greets, where applicants can meet and socialize with the dogs, was tedious, as they needed to manually identify the applicants who were approved to attend the event.
With Zoho Creator, they built adoption application and foster apps. When they receive a request to take in a dog, they first look through their foster database to determine whether they have a foster that suits the dog's criteria. And then they check the dog database, which contains all of the dog's information. From vet check-ups, when the dog is deemed medically ready for adoption, to virtual meet and greets, every step of the process was digitized. Zoho Creator now helps them track applicants, fosters, and their dogs, all in one place.
