FREE Animal Shelter Management software!

I got this on a reptile related email list, thought I'd forward it on cause there's a few people that run rescues here..

It's available for both windows and Linux.

Animal Shelter Manager is a free computer package, covered by the terms of the GNU General Public Licence. It is designed to take most (if not all) of the paperwork away from running an animal shelter/sanctuary. The system can also be used to manage a veterinary surgery or clinic.

The package is both free as in freedom and free as in beer, however if you like what I am doing and want to help, please consider donating something. Money, equipment, documentation, testing, translation, anything will be very gratefully received. Even if it's just a note of support to say you like the program.

An Open System

Animal Shelter Manager has been carefully designed to run under any operating system and computer platform, ensuring that you always have choices and options. Using ASM you will never be locked in to any one particular technology or forced to spend money to get what you need.

The system is completely free in all senses of the word and utilises other free software solutions, ensuring no unpleasant licence costs to users and most importantly ensuring your rights and freedoms to open standards, open file formats/protocols and the ongoing guarantee unfair terms will never be put upon you whilst you use the system. For more information on the Free Software movement in general, visit the Free Software Foundation.

User Base

Given the free nature of ASM, it is difficult to ascertain accurate user statistics. A conservative estimate, based on downloads and feedback I have received indicates that the ASM user base is somewhere around 2,000 shelters across the US, UK, Australia, Canada and Europe - although it could be many more. Compared to commercial competitors, this gives ASM one of the largest (if not the largest) installed user base of any computerised shelter management package available. Efforts are currently underway to translate ASM to French, Spanish, German, Turkish and Czech.
If you would like to help translate ASM to your own language, please read the Translation HOWTO.


I haven't tried it, and don't know anything about it, but it sounds good.

May you live in interesting times.
