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.

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Phoenixville, PA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Sasha was found tied in front of an apartment building in the Bronx. The finder stated that his father works as a super of the building and she was found earlier this morning on 07/27/16. They waited for an owner to return but she was left outside for a few hours. Behavior during intake Sasha was very friendly and allowed all handling. She allowed to be approached and jumped up to greet us. She was scanned (-) and collared and sat nicely for her photos. She was then transferred into a kennel. A volunteer writes: What time is it? It’s belly rub o’clock–that’s what time it is! So sweet and gentle, Miss Sasha was ready for a walk, taking care of her business the moment we were outside, and wagging her tail as we walked to the park. In the park, she lay down froggy style to better watch everything going on, and when I sat down next to her she rolled over for a belly rub. Must be belly rub ‘oclock!!! She’s sweet, playful, gorgeous and fun, giving me lots of kisses, wanting to meet other dogs we passed, and in group play she romped with other dogs and politely greeted those that didn’t want to play. Good girl, Sasha! The Urban Dictionary defines Sasha as a ‘warm hearted person’, and Wikipedia explains the origin of the name as a ‘helper of mankind’. They both really work with our girl who is warm, friendly, social, sweet, and affectionate. Her little tail never stops wagging, and as she can get a little mouthy when she gets excited that our behavior team suggests a person or family who is experienced and does not have young children. She sits when asked and takes treats softly. Sasha is smart, petite and ready to learn everything she needs to know with positive reinforcement–so come meet our ‘warm hearted helper of mankind’ (OK, a little poetic license) today! Every day should be belly rub day!

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Phoenixville, PA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Sweet Donte came to us in January with ear, skin and urinary tract infections; clearly he had not been well-cared for. Fast forward 7 months, and with a great diet and the right medications, DONTE is ready for the right adopter to come along and snatch him up. He is a little cross eyed, but that add to his charm. He's ready to play bow at the world! He loves treats, seems VERY housebroken, and is a pro at “sit” and “down.” He is reported to be well behaved when left alone, relaxed and gentle around children. He loves human company and likes to be petted. He enjoys the 'bouncy' play with our female dog Peanut...and in general just likes hanging out with her.

      GEORGE

      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Phoenixville, PA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / American Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). A volunteer writes: Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle, wag, wag, wag. Little George is open for business! 1.5 year-old George, a Tootsie roll on four legs, is sweet, silly, and a tiny bit shy. On our first meeting George is initially nervous and reluctant to leave his kennel for our walk despite wag, wag, wagging throughout it all. But after a few kind words and a few delicious treats George is ready to go! Well, almost ready. The shelter’s halls prove a bit too scary and George initially “pancakes” himself on to the ground rather than walk. Fearful though he may seem, however, he continues to wag, wag, wag, and wiggle, wiggle, wiggle even at one point rolling over for a belly rub! I decide the most efficient way to get sweet George out and on to playing is to carry our Tootsie roll like the babe that he is. I scoop all 40 lbs of him into my arms and he gives my cheek a quick slurrrrp as thanks. Free in a pen George sheds every hesitation and relaxes into the true, young pup that he is. He savors every treat and sniffs every toy and flops over once more for a belly rub. For our return George is now emboldened and walks without worry back through the shelter’s doors. On approaching his kennel he has one moment of pause, looking up at me “It’s OK?” “It is,” I say rubbing his head, and he happily hops inside. Sweet, silly, and a tiny bit shy, George needs only the right hand to guide him and show him the ways of the world. Could that be you? Best fit: Single and couples; Families with kids, we would prefer 5+. Email ThePolishedPitbull@gmail.com to find out more about meeting GEORGE. His adoption fee is $150.00 and every adoption starts as a two week trial 'sleepover' to ensure a good fit.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Beau, so incredibly sweet and easy to handle. All he wants to do is just lie at your feet and hang with you. Other dogs are okay, but YOU are the focus. Someone thought he would make him look tough by doing a hacket job on his ears, but nothing could be further from the truth. This dog is a marshmallow. On the small side at about 50 lbs, he is about 6 years old and would dearly love a home of his own...in foster care now, he is thriving...loves a sun bath on the deck, then happy to come in and nap. One thing: he loves to eat grass! Email ThePolishedPitbull@gmail.com to find out more about meeting BEAU. His adoption fee is $150.00 and every adoption starts as a two week trial 'sleepover' to ensure a good fit.

She adores every person she meetsl and wants nothing more than to be at your side forever. She was a favorite of the shelter staff at CCSPCA in Vineland...found as a street stray with cuts all over her, she was pregnant to boot. Now all of her puppies have been adopted, it's Elia's turn. Since she loves nothing more than lying on the sofa, or on the deck in the sun, she would be a perfect pet for a retired couple who have a fenced yard and want to give this Mommy dog the love and care she has only now started to receive in her life....she is so deserving...will you be the one(s)? I would absolutely trust her with your grandkids too.

I'm very easy. BTW, no kitties for me! TOO much fun to chase! I would be a great fit for any family situation, where kids are 10 plus. Plus, I am already neutered and up-to-date on my shots.
