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: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Senior dogs make great companions. While they may not have the many years left in their life, they still have lots of love to give. Abe is no exception! This sweet guy, at 9-years-old, came to us as a stray with some pretty intense medical issues he needed our help with. After some immediate care, Abe is now looking for a special family that will continue helping him through his medical and provide him with whatever he may need in the future. Are you that special person looking for a special dog? Abe will need a home without cats, since he seems to enjoy them a little more than they enjoy him. Also, Abe would enjoy a quiet home without small children where he can enjoy the calmer moments in life. If you are interested in hearing more about Abe or are interested in taking home Abe on a Pajama Party, feel free to come visit to the shelter today!

He is looking for a home with older children and a more experienced adopter willing to take the time for him to acclimate to his new home. Once he is comfortable, he should open up more and will need lots of exercise and playtime. He does seem to perk up around other dogs, and has done well in our playgroups so may enjoy a doggie sibling in his new home. With continued training and lots of extra treats Auden will blossom in his new home. If this sounds like a good fit, come meet Auden today!

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. If you're looking for a 64 pound lap dog, look no further than Tyson! This big ol' tub-o-love is just the sweetest, friendliest boy there ever was! His favorite things at the shelter so far have been playing with other dogs, chewing on his rawhides, and playing with tennis balls! He's sure to make a wonderful companion, whether you're looking for a cuddle buddy, or someone to play fetch with in the yard. Tyson really is the whole package, so come meet this sweet senior today! Tyson has heartworm which means that this dog has parasitic worms in the right ventricle of the heart and nearby blood vessels. Heartworm is transmitted from one dog to another by mosquitoes and can be easily prevented using monthly heartworm preventative, but once the disease is contracted the treatment process can be quite intensive. Tyson will need to remain sedentary with minimal activity during the treatment process to ensure a healthy recovery. There is additional information on heartworm disease and treatment available at our Adoption Desk.
