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.

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Dusti (poochheavenvolunteer@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Star is a 7 year old, 53 lbs Shepherd mix. She was rescued by a Pooch Heaven volunteer after months of convincing the owners to give her to us. She was kept chained up as an outside dog (started when she was a pup) with minimal contact. Finally they gave her to us, we are still working on getting the other dogs from them. Star is happy to be free and is looking for a forever home and family. She is great with other dogs and any family would be lucky to have her as their companion. Star is sweet, playful and affectionate. Since being in our care she has been spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. All Star needs now is a family to love!

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Mixed (medium coat). Please contact Dusti (poochheavenvolunteer@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Meet Rolo, he is one of our most special friends!!! We rescued him from East Valley Animal Shelter; they had picked him up as a stray. Rolo is a 5 year old, 24 pound- Terrier Mix. He was not available for adoption at the pound to the public; they would only adopt him to a rescue because of his behavioral issues. Since, being in our care we are working with him daily and he has made great progress but has away to go. Rolo can not be adopted into a home with any small children due to him being so scared, timid and nippy. Most likely Rolo had a horrible beginning in life and has lost his trust in people (if he ever had it), it seems he was either left in a backyard or confined to a small space with no interaction. He had never been hugged, given any affection or praise and he had never been on a leash. Since, being with us he has shown he is actually extremely lovable and capable of being handled and touched, once he gets to know you and trust that you will not hurt him. We have also got him to walk on a leash, 30-40 feet but it has taken time. Rolo needs a quiet, patient and calm home. He also listens very well and will make a great companion for the right person. If you are interested in meeting this special guy, please call us at 866-PAL-4-LIFE.
