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.

      Martin

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Labrador Retriever-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Crestview, FL
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Martin is about 2 years old and came to us with his 'brother', they were dumped at a kill shelter when their owner died. Martin is a very sweet boy. He needs a home with lots of acreage or he will require an 8 ft chain link fence or a privacy fence that he can't climb. We don't know what his past was like but his front teeth are mostly gone. It looks like he was trying to escape a crate or kennel although he's been well behaved in both. Martin is gentle and would be a great companion. Adoption fee is $150; includes neuter, vaccines, heartworm test and microchip. Call 850-902-5326 if you'd like to meet Martin.

      Sophia

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Crestview, FL
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Cindy (tululasmom@aol.com) for more information about this pet. This is Sophia. She was a long termer with me and then was adopted 3 times and once again returned. This time her owner was going to have her put down because she digs out of the yard. Of course that was ridiculous and we weren't going to let that happen. Sophia is now about 3 years old and she's a WONDERFUL dog. House and crate trained, she does well with small dogs and children of all ages. She still needs work on her leash training and as you can see she has a lot of energy. Sophia needs a new FOREVER home which has been promised to her in the past but she has yet to find hers. Please share Sophia. She would be a great running buddy! Adoption fee is $125; includes spay, vaccines, and heartworm test [negative]. Call 850-902-5326 if you'd like to meet Sophia.

      Kharma

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Crestview, FL
      Posted Breed: Pit Bull Terrier (short coat). Kharma came to us from a kill shelter after she was found starving and very thin. She was of course heartworm positive but has undergone the treatment and is now negative! We are estimating that she is about 2-3 years old. Kharma has what we can only assume was a 'home' ear cropping job. She gets along with male dogs or puppies but doesn't like the female dog in her foster home. She's very sweet and just a big baby but with any adult pit being place we suggest having pit experience. Adoption fee is $150; includes spay, vaccines, heartworm test [negative] and microchip. Call 850-902-5326 if you'd like to meet Kharma.
