Pet adoption tips

Why adoption over buying

Did you know that over 1,000 people per hour run a search right here looking to adopt a pet? Pet adoption is quickly becoming the preferred way to find a new dog or cat, and rightly so, there are many benefits to adopting a pet. Pet adoption fees are usually much lower than buying from a breeder. You’re also likely to find a pet who’s already learned a few things. Adoptable pets are often already housetrained, good with kids, and do well with other pets. And don’t forget the wonderful feeling you get from saving a life!

How to find the perfect pet

Do you know what type of pet personality you’re looking for? Finding the ideal pet for your home should start with understanding the personality that best fits your lifestyle, not necessarily a specific breed. Consider this, do you need a dog that is low key? Perhaps a cat that gets along well with others? The rescue professionals posting on our site are experts at matching you with the right pet. Our website even has a “New Pet Alert” feature to help you narrow things down. Simply tell us what you are looking for and we’ll email you your matches!

Our mission (and passion) is to provide every homeless pet the chance to do what they do best: give people snoopleboops.

Special thanks to our partners Nationwide and all those whose support makes our life-saving work possible.
