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.

      SWEET

      rescue
      Breed: Brittany
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: Jackson, NY
      Posted Breed: Brittany (short coat). 4/23/2017 UPDATE: Sweet has been doing very well considering she is on restricted activity. Unfortunately this means she has to be an only dog. I do allow her out in the yard where she runs around for a short period of time. Then it's back in her crate to rest. She spends quite a large amount of time on the couch chilling. As far as her medications 2 are available from Rite Aid under their discount program under $20 a month. Still working on finding the best price for the third med. She will be on these meds for the rest of her life. So I realize that this is a large responsibility but Sweet is such a wonderful girl she deserves a chance at the most normal life available. Hoping there is someone out there who is willing to give her that chance. UPDATE: Sweet has been home for 5 days and is doing very well. She is confined for another week, No strenuous activity or stress of any kind. Hoping that when we go back to the vet on the 17th her meds will be reduced and she can go back to moderate activities. If you are interested in adopting Sweet please keep in mind that she will be on heart meds for the rest of her life. Also her activities will have to be curtailed. This is an UPDATE about SWEET. It has been discovered that Sweet has an enlarged heart, heart murmur, fluid in her chest, and has been at the vet's since thursday, 3/30. She seemed to be improving but there has been another problem. It appears she also has lung damage and cannot be stressed in any way which even includes riding home in the car. She will be staying another couple of days to see if the coughing, which indicates the lung problem, subsides. Just don't know what's going to happen...PAWS CROSSED!!!!! Anyone interested in donating for her vet care go to https://www.gofundme.com/help-cover-sweets-vet-billls. SWEET is a 5 yo, 32 lb, Brittany Spaniel, who absolutely lives up to her name. She was used as a breeding dog probably her whole life. A wonderful rescue took her from the horrible conditions in which she had been living. Due to those conditions she was heart worm positive and had to be treated and then was required to be held in confinement for 6 weeks. She has been wonderful, so patient while waiting to be let free. WELL the time has come...as you can see in the video she is having a great time in the backyard with the rest of the pack. SWEET will do well with another non-dominant dog. She gets along with both male and female. Is crate trained, housebroken, needs a fenced in backyard where she can get lots of exercise. SWEET deserves a happy, well-cared for, loving family to make up for her sad beginnings. There is an adoption process consisting of an application, home visit, contract and adoption fee.

      Breed: Beagle-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Jackson, NY
      Posted Breed: Hound / Beagle / Mixed (short coat). JOCKO is a 4 yo, 29 lb, Beagle/Hound mix who is crate trained, housebroken and very sweet. He is very active and would do well with another active dog as part of his new furever family. He did not have a very happy beginning. His original family traveled a lot so JOCKO spent a large part of his life in boarding. Eventually his family decided it wasn't fair to him and surrendered him to rescue. He comes from down south but doesn't have a southern bark so you might not guess he's from Louisiana. JOCKO needs help with manners in the house but surprisingly walks well on a leash, Won't you consider adding JOCKO to your family.

      Breed: Jack-Rat Terrier
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Jackson, NY
      Posted Breed: Jack Russell Terrier / Rat Terrier / Mixed (short coat). RAY-RAY is a 1 yo, 15 lb, JRT/Rat Terrier mix, who is crate trained and housebroken. Loves to run in the backyard with an other dog. As you can see in the video. He was picked up as a stray in Louisiana. You wouldn't believe he's a southern boy cuz he doesn't have a southern "bark". He is energetic and would do best in a home with an active family and another high energy dog. He does need help learning his manners indoors, but he is a quick learner and smart. Won't you like RAY-RAY to join your family. There is an adoption process consisting of an application, home visit, contract and adoption fee.

      Breed: Miniature Pinscher-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Jackson, NY
      Posted Breed: Miniature Pinscher / Mixed (short coat). BAXTER is a 4 yo, 13 lb, Miniature Pinscher mix whose owner died suddenly, leaving 12 dogs homeless. He was lucky to find shelter in a foster home with other dogs and cats. He gets along with other dogs but doesn't really bother with cats. He loves to sleep next to his person and cuddle in his crate wrapped in his blanket. BAXTER is very skittish of louds noises, sudden movements, and unfamiliar things. He does not like men and needs time and patience to warm up to women. Once he warms up he becomes attached but when he is familiar with his surroundings makes himself comfortable on the couch, chair or a dog bed on the floor. He loves squeaky toys and then destroys them. BAXTER would do best in a quiet home without children. He would do well in a multi-dog home.
