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.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed. Need a great friend in your life? If so, meet me, Phoebe! I am a blonde 7-year-old lab mix gal who weighs 56 lbs. I was surrendered to the shelter when my previous family got divorced. I don&#39;t really know what that means, but I guess it means that I lost my family and home. I had lived in my previous home for more than 6 years after coming from a friend of the family, but now I need a true forever home. <br/><br/>In my previous home, I lived both indoors and outdoors, and I was left alone for 14-15 hours. I was either free in the home or in my dog run. I would like a home where I&#39;m not left alone for so long. I am a good girl, but 14-15 hours is too long to hold it. I am reported to be housetrained, though. <br/><br/>When I warm up, I really like to play. I like to jump and wrestle and play &quot;keep away.&quot; And I LOVE squeaky toys, especially squeaky balls! I also walk very nicely on the leash, and I know the commands &quot;sit&quot; and &quot;stay.&quot; Oh, and I LOVE treats. I bet I could learn a lot of new things with the help of treats! I am able to jump a 3-foot fence, but I haven&#39;t actually chosen to do that in a really long time. <br/><br/>I will admit, I&#39;m a bit unsure of small children. Older children may be best for me, but if you have small children, please bring them to meet me with the rest of the family. I&#39;d also be better in a home with no small animals or cats. If you have another dog, please bring your dog to meet me so that we can be sure we can be friends. <br/><br/>Please come meet me at KCPP. I&#39;ll be there for you...waiting to meet you.

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Hi, I&#39;m Josie! I&#39;m a one-year old pit mix looking for my forever home. I&#39;m full of puppy energy and love playing with my 80-pound foster dog brother, my other two smaller foster dog sisters (when they can tolerate me) and my foster family. I also have a foster cat sister but I am not that interested in her. I&#39;m a very agile and energetic girl. I am still learning to be the best dog I can be, so I&#39;ll need someone who is patient and willing to work with me on good manners and training. I think I would fit best in a home with at least one other dog because I love to play and I take good cues from them regarding the rules of the house. After my puppy energy runs out, I&#39;m calm and want nothing more than to snuggle as close to you as I can get and sleep the hours away. You&#39;ll probably fall in love with my loud exhales letting you know how much I appreciate you giving me a safe home to live in... When I was brought to KC Pet Proejct, I was in pretty bad shape - starving and sick. The vet said I could only take 3 steps before collapsing and they were worried I wouldn&#39;t make it through the night. They nursed me back to health and now it&#39;s as though I never went through that ordeal! I am very treat-motivated, but hey, what dog isn&#39;t? I can get a little spooked by loud noises and unfamiliar events, so I&#39;ll need a dedicated safe space in your home that I can find shelter in if I need to (at foster mom&#39;s house it&#39;s the queen sized bed in the bedroom!). Even though I had a rough start, I am full of love and silliness and will keep you entertained for hours!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. Hi! My name is Samsara and I am looking for my forever home! I am a super sweet 10 year old pit mix who loves going for walks and napping on the couch all day long. I walk well on the leash on my normal routes, though I do tend to pull when there is another dog around or if I am in a new place. I like to play in short bursts and get very excited about playing tug and chasing squeaky toys. I also love treats and my doggie bed, though I prefer to snuggle up on my foster mom&#39;s bed at night! I know all my basic commands and would be happy to show them off for you. I don&#39;t enjoy being around other dogs, so I have to find a home where I can be the only dog to soak up all the love from my humans! I am generally fine around cats, though. I absolutely love people, snuggling and getting lots of back scratches. In fact, my foster mom says I&#39;m just a big ol&#39; lover, so if you are searching for the perfect companion, look no further!

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed. Hi I&#39;m Duncan a 3 year old Shepherd Mix and I may be a boy and bigger than Dixie, my partner, but she&#39;s my rock. We are both shy and nervous in this situation, but I&#39;m the most fearful and I look to Dixie for comfort and assurance. As they say, behind every good man is a great woman. Well, that&#39;s Dixie for me. It takes me a while to warm up and get over my nerves but when I do I really am sweet and friendly. I can be pretty affectionate with my kisses. And just like Dixie, I love my treats and a treat motivated dog is pretty easy to train. I hope you give Dixie and me a chance! As you can see by our pictures we are a very handsome couple and will be your best friend for life. A bonus is my adoption fee covers neuter, microchip, current vaccinations and 30 days of pet Insurance, but that&#39;s nothing compared to what Dixie and I will give you!

      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed. &quot;I wanna be a Cowboy! So you wanna be a cowboy and you wanna rodeo. Well I don&#39;t see nothin&#39; to hold you back just pack your stuff and go. You&#39;ll travel many highways and boy you&#39;re gonna see it all. You&#39;ll have yourself some good times but you&#39;re gonna take some falls&quot;. <br/>Well this Cowboy fell on some hard times being dropped off at the shelter, but he&#39;s ready to get back into the circuit and find a family. Poor guy is heart worm positive, but between you and KC Pet Project that will get fixed. Even though he&#39;s been bucked off a few times he is still a happy, outgoing boy. Just look at that face, those eyes are full of life and he is ready to play ball! Cowboy also really digs his squeaky toys!!!! Most Cowboys have good manners but could use a little polish around the edges and Cowboy needs some work on his leash manners. Mosey on down to KC Pet Project and adopt this Cowboy. HIs adoption fee covers neuter, current vaccinations, microchip and 30 days of pet insurance. Much obliged!

Do you think you have room for me in your home and heart? I get so excited when I see my human friends and want to cover them with kisses! As always, if you have a canine friend already and you think that we could be pals, be sure to set up a meeting with the staff before we all go home together. I know several commands and can&#39;t wait to show them all off for you! My adoption fee covers my spay surgery, vaccinations, microchip, and heartworm test.

      Posted Breed: Rottweiler / Mixed. If you have read any of the books Carl the Good Dog, you already know how wonderful a Rottweiler can be! Garber is a Rottweiler Mix with the typical Black/Tan markings of a Rottie. He is about 4 years old and just a big ole baby. Garber craves human affection. If he could spend all day cuddled in your lap he would! He loves playing with tug toys and usually ends up in a tug-o-war with my other dog (Female, spayed, 2yr, pit/mix). He also loves rawhides bones and will occupy himself for hours on end with one. Garber absolutely LOVES, LOVES, LOVES going on walks. If you say, &quot;let&#39;s go!&quot; he will run right to the door. It is quite funny watching Garber and my other dog get ready for walks. They act like children going to an amusement park! He does great walking on the leash and will only pull occasionally. Garber loves treats! He will sit and give you paw (both sides depending on which hand you ask for). He is a great napping buddy and will cuddle the whole time. He appears to be house trained and will paw at the door if he needs to go outside. Please come meet Garber, he is craving a fur-ever home and a buddy! Garber&#39;s adoption fee covers vaccinations, a microchip, and 30 days of pet insurance - remarkable for a dog like Garber.

      Posted Breed: Rottweiler / Mixed. Rajah is a beautiful Rottweiler Mix and she is a sweet girl weighing in at 80 lbs. Rajah has the typical black/brown markings of a Rottweiler and those big brown eyes that make you just melt. Rajah is shy at first, so please go a little slow when you meet her and let her get to know you first. Some one has worked with her in the past as she knows &quot;sit&quot; and is really good on the leash. It seems like the big dogs are usually good on the leash and the medium size dogs about yank your arm out of the socket. Her play style is listed as gentle and dainty. Volunteers describe her as happy, playful, mellow and very sweet. If this is the personality you seek, please come meet Rajah. Her adoption fee covers 30 days of Pet Insurance (yeah), spay, microchip and current vaccinations.
