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!
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!
