If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: Poodle (Miniature)-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Baby
      Location: Mission Viejo, CA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (medium coat). Charlie is a 6 month puppy that had a very rough start. He was born with a spinal deformity but rather than do anything about it his owners confined him to a cage in the garage. When we got him he was underweight, filthy, and had sores on his back feet from dragging them around. We now have him in a loving foster home and he is a happy puppy! He does well in the carpeted rooms to get around without hurting himself, and he cruises around in a cart like he was born in it! He wears a diaper and doesn't seem to mind at all. He needs a special person that needs him as much as he needs them. Is that you? Please text or email us if you would like to meet this super special boy.

      Oso

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Mission Viejo, CA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog (medium coat). Oso is an absolute sweetheart of a dog. He is super loving and cuddly. When we got him he had already had his tail removed for apparent neurological reasons. We discovered he had luxated hips and thought that was the problem with his back end and the way he walked. We did surgery on one hip thinking it would make him stronger. Turns out it has not. We won't put him through another hip surgery when it appears the problem is more likely his spine. He gets around well, is not in any pain, but will never be an agility dog. He needs a home that understands he could progressively get weaker in his back end. There is no way to determine if it may be two years from now or twelve years. For now, he's a happy, bouncy, loving and playful 1 year old puppy. Would you like to give him a chance? Please text or email us if you would like to meet him.

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: Mission Viejo, CA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Rhona is such a sweet little girl. We got her out of the shelter with what was suppose to be kennel cough. Turns out she has a heart murmur and that was creating her cough. We did a cardiac ultrasound and now have her on the appropriate medications and she is doing great! She would love a home with a soft lap to sit on. Could that be yours? Please email or text us if you would like to meet this tiny girl.
