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: Chihuahua
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua (short coat). Meet Maggie! Maggie is a sweet and gentle little girl. She was dropped off at the vet with two other dogs and her previous owners requested that they be euthanized because they did not want them anymore. Of course we could not let that happen! Maggie is about three years old. She is a cuddly girl, though a little shy and timid at first. She gets along well with other dogs and is easy and well-behaved in the home. Maggie was diagnosed with canine herpes, a mostly dormant condition. When she has a flare-up she can feel a little under the weather. It is not transferable to humans, but during a flare-up can be contagious to other dogs. For this reason, Maggie will need to be the only dog in the home. We hope that someone will see her sweet and gentle personality and not let her health issue stand in the way of her finding a loving home. Maggie's is spayed, chipped and vaccinated. Her adoption fee is $95. We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life! To expedite to meet with this dog, please go to our site at www.savinggreatanimals.org and fill out an application.

      Posted Breed: Shepherd / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). What a cutie pie! This is is 2-yr-old Nia and what a doll. This darling would love to be in a home where there is fun activity, lots of good walks, hikes and more fun. And then time to cuddle and snooze! Nia wants to be loved and you can give her no greater joy than to cuddle and play with her. She is easily one of the snuggliest pups ever. A true BFF. She is very low key in the household. She gets a bit nervous when she is left alone but her confidence is growing more each day. She's house trained and knows basic commands, LOVES going to walks, or even runs and hikes. She is treat motivated. She is learning better leash skills, as she can pull a little bit, but her foster mom is helping her make great strides. She wants to say hi to everyone. She gets excited when she sees other dogs. We can help with the right way to introduce her to a new playmate! She is now updated on all shots, spayed and will be chipped. Her adopt fee is $395. We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Staffordshire Bull Terrier Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Staffordshire Bull Terrier / Mixed. Meet Bertie! What a cutie! We are so glad to have rescued her in her last hours as she was in a high kill shelter to no fault of her own. She is just one year old and so ready for a family that will put her right into the mix as part of the pack! Bertie is super sweet and a champion cuddler. She LOVES people, especially snuggling with them. She also loves food so training with treat as reward is good. Berties would do best with a person who is home more often than not as she really wants to be with her people. Left alone for a bit in the home, she doesn't destroy anything and does not like to be crated. Bertie is good with other dogs and lives with another dog in her foster home. They play and play and play hard so a pal to pal with may be great for her. She is talky to dogs on walks, probably wanting to play. We can provide tips on leash walking and working with her to calm when she passes another dog. Another moment to sit and get a treat! Bertie is not good with cats. She likes car rides which makes it great for her to run errands, go to the park, etc. Potting training is a work in progress and she is making great strides. We have tips here, too. This precious gal is lively and full of desire for walks, hikes, runs. Make her your sidekick! She would love to carry weighted packs, too, to give her something good to work with on hikes. Bertie loves people and will bond with you. We are looking a loving family for her that will last her entire lifetime. She is so worthwhile, kind, sweet, funny, and goofy! A happy girl. Going to training together is a must for her and for you. She will want to please but needs to know what to do and what to do with her energy and love. She is now updated on shots, spayed and will be chipped. Her adopt fee is $295. We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Whippet / Shepherd / Mixed (short coat). Joy is the perfect size! She is a 4 + -yr-old snuggler, ready to be loved. She has a slender face and we think she is a mix of whippet and shepherd. But if she is a heinz 57, she is a cute one! Joy will love to be active with you so if you are inclined for walks, hikes or runs, she will enjoy joining you. She has gone for long hikes and loves it! Joy digs sniffing smells on her walks and will play ball but wants a treat for you to throw. She thrives on learning and doing and going and could possibly do agility training. She is agile and strong. Joy is very well trained and super smart. She responds to commands quickly and eagerly. She knows sit, stay, leave it, find it, shake, rollover, heel and is a delight to train with. She loves to give kisses and rides well in the car, just lying on the back seat or looking out the window. She smiles a lot and loves to be with people. We recommend her for a home with older children (over 10) only. Joy is a sensitive girl, loud sounds or if you raise your voice, etc. so she will need a gentle and firm leader. She also will do better with someone around more often than not as she does not love staying home by herself for long periods of time. Joy likes other dogs but is more of a leader type so a submissive pal is best. She does well with bigger dogs vs. small. Her current doggie daycare best friend is a German Shepherd. No cats or little critters for this girl. She is updated on all shots, spayed and will love to join you. Her adopt fee is $295. We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Meet Gus! Gus was found cold, skinny and alone in a parking lot. He looked like he had been on the run for a quite some time. We are not sure if he was dumped or somehow separated from his owner, but all attempts at finding his owner failed. Now Gus needs a loving home to lie down his weary head. Gus is just under 8 years old and a lab mix. His foster has lovingly fattened him up and he is now healthy and doing well. Gus is a shy boy and it takes him some time to warm up to people. He likes to watch what is going on from a distance and enjoys sleeping in his warm bed or on a corner of the couch. He likes being petted but is unsure at first. Once he trusts you, he is happy with some nice ear scratches or back rubs. He gets along well with other dogs but not with cats. We think he will do best in a home without children or lots of coming and going. Gus likes things quiet and predictable. He also needs proper introduction to new people and we can provide you tips and as long as you follow them to a T, all will be well! We'd love to see this lost boy in a home once again. He is now vaccinated, neutered and ready to be loved. His adoption fee is $195, often matched by employers, so please do check! We cover the medical to prepare the pet for adoption and the adopt donations go directly to cover those costs and range from $295-$495. Thank you for stepping up to save a life!

He has pretty black and white coloring and is a loving boy. He is shy at first and takes a while to open up, but once he does, he is super sweet and will be your constant companion. Joey loves children and enjoys their company. He is good with other dogs too. His only challenge is that he gets very worried meeting new people. He would prefer a more quiet home where there is not too much coming and going, which makes a home with children a bit of a challenge for him (even though he likes kids a lot).
