Example of use
Pet Rescue Listings
A pet rescue website needs to list all pets available for adoption. Custom fields such as Breed, Age, and Size might be needed to accurately describe each animal. PODS makes it easy to create the custom fields, while Elementor brings the magic needed to beautifully display the data on the front end.
