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.

      Scrappy

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: Chinese Shar-Pei-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Hilton Head, SC
      Posted Breed: Shar Pei / Hound / Mixed (short coat). Scrappy was turned into Animal Control by his owner in terrible shape. He had a couple of masses, infected ears, a bad tooth, and no hair. We removed the masses ( they were benign), pulled the tooth, cleaned up the ears, and Scrappy's hair is growing back nicely. It probably won't ever be a glossy thick coat, but his scrappy appearance, along with his expressive eyes, is part of his appeal. Scrappy really deserves a great home and is prepared to love you the rest of his life if given a chance.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever. Look deep in to my big brown eyes. I want to be your dog. I don't want to share you with a cat or another dog. My mission in life is to love you, not to share you! I will be happy to help you with chores around the house, watch tv, or settle in to read a good book. I am going to be blunt here, the "pet" part of your life has to be all about me! No Exceptions! Don't I sound perfect? If you want someone to give you their undivided attention, I am the gal for you.

      Age: Senior
      Location: Hilton Head, SC
      Posted Breed: Black Labrador Retriever (short coat). You would never in a million years think this dog was a senior. Clyde may be 9 years old, but his playfulness and enthusiasm for ball throwing makes him seem like a much younger lab. He loves to retrieve and would make a great beach dog.
