What is the DogsOnly RSS feed?
The rate of rescues and adoptions at DogsOnly is almost impossible to predict. New companion dogs come into our program all the time, and it's not unusual for a dog to post to our adoption gallery and be adopted in only a few days. If you are looking for that special companion, you really have to visit the gallery often to make sure you don't miss that special opportunity.
Wouldn't it be better to have the latest postings and features delivered directly to you, rather than having to remember to visit the gallery every day? Well now you can, thanks to a very clever service, RSS.
RSS takes the hassle out of staying up-to-date, by showing you the very latest information from DogsOnly that you are interested in.
Not all websites currently provide RSS, but it is growing rapidly in popularity and many websites, including the Guardian, New York Times and CNN already provide feeds.
do I start using the DogsOnly RSS feed?
In general, the first thing you need is something called a News Reader. There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications. All allow you to display and subscribe to the RSS feeds you want.
Once you have chosen a News Reader, all you have to do is to subscribe to the feed in various ways, including dragging the URL of the RSS feed into your News Reader or by cutting and pasting the same URL into a new feed in your News Reader.
Some browsers, including Firefox, Opera and Safari, have functionality which automatically pick up RSS feeds for you. For more details on these, please check their websites.
