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: Akita-German Shepherd Dog Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Golden, CO
      Posted Breed: Akita / German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (medium coat). Kita is a friendly, 1 1/2 year old GORGEOUS 85 lb Akita/German Shepherd mix we saved from a rural shelter. Her foster family thinks she is incredibly special and is basically a gigantic baby who loves to play and snuggle, but also needs plenty of exercise and room to run. (She could make a great therapy dog). Kita is quite intelligent and very good with commands (sit, stay, shake, lie down, and is 100% house broken). She will be easy to teach new and more complex types of commands, learns fast with positive training and wants to please! Kita gets along with everyone but definitely prefers men over women so a male adopter is best (and breed experience is important). She is good on leash and loves riding in vehicles. She wants to be the center of your world, so she CAN AND WILL jump fences if bored, so a high fence and big yard are required. An only dog household or one with another large dog who can hold their own while playing is best for Kita. She is very gentle, but she has no idea how big she is, which makes her a bit rough when it comes to playing with smaller dogs and cats. She wants so badly to love and be loved and in the right home that can meet her needs, she will be one of the most amazing companions anyone has ever had the pleasure of knowing. She is good with kids but due to her size, hey need to be older. The foster family would love to keep her, but realize it is in her best interest to be with a family that can give her all the attention she demands and deserves. If you have the type of home described and think Kita could be your new BFF, the first step is to please go to our website and fill out an application at www.secondchancejack.org . Her adoption fee is $225 and that covers all her vetting and microchip.

      Breed: Border Collie-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Golden, CO
      Posted Breed: Border Collie / Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (medium coat). Hi, I am Luna! I need a new FOREVER HOME or a FOSTER HOME. I am a 1 yr old lovely Cattle Dog/Border Collie mix saved from a high kill shelter. I am full grown but have lots of puppy energy still. I need someone that wants a close companion who can make a primary center of their focus. I thrive with exercise and stimulation every day and do enjoy that morning exercise a lot. I am very agile, sweet and attentive, smart, highly trainable, and loving. My foster mom says I have a border collie type personality! I am not an escape artist or a runner – and will stay with you. I would love to go hiking and camping and will be a good off leash dog as you are my world. I get along great with other playful dogs and it helps me get my energy out and can play for hours. Dog parks are a blast and I am very social and fun and can run like a deer. The star of the show they say! I love children and do bark at strangers in alert at first but am not aggressive. I am full of love and like to express it all the time. If allowed I would love to be on the bed and couch with you. I love to be next to you and If I’m not getting enough attention, I’ll give you a little nudge you with my nose to let you know I am still there and ready for more loves. LEARNING – I love learning! I have learned to sit, lay down, stay, speak, and go lay down. I still need lots of training, every day. This helps me feel safe and connected. If you think I could be part of your family, I would love you to fill out an application on our website at www.secondchancejackorg. I am full vetted and microchipped.
