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.

      Princess

      rescue
      Breed: Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Young
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Bull Terrier / American Staffordshire Terrier (short coat). Princess was born approx July 2016 and is a pocket pitty, small and short but is solid and weighs 40 lbs. She is a very sweet dog with a lot of energy. She needs a home with an active playmate. She gets along with dogs, people, and is super playful. She loves to play fetch and will bring the ball right back to your feet. She loves life and has been through a lot for being so young. She and her brother arrived at the shelter with rat poisoning. They both survived, then both got parvo. She survived but unfortunately her brother did not. She was then adopted but was in a bad car accident with her prior owners. As a result, she had 3 severe fractures in her hind leg. Her owners dumped her on the street and a good samaritan found her limping and brought her back to the shelter. All of this happened before she was 6 months old! We rescued her from the shelter and she had her needed surgery. Even though the injury was old and had already healed, we were still able to repair the fractures. All has healed completely and she doesn’t limp at all. Completion of an obedience class will be required, no exceptions. Stop by and meet our pets on SATURDAYS or if you are not able, email to arrange a convenient time to meet the pet. Adoption events are Saturday from 11 am to 3pm at R and R Pet Lifestyle and Supply at 2780 Tapo Canyon Road, Simi Valley (SE corner of Tapo Canyon and Alamo), except holiday weekends.

      Harley

      rescue
      Breed: Chiranian
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Pomeranian / Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). Harley was born approx 2011. He is a very devoted and loving little guy....but his devotion it seems is limited to one person in the household. He can be friendly and loving to others, but he has displayed overly protective tendencies to the one he has chosen as his.....even if that 'one' has a two legged significant other. We a looking for a single woman for this little guy, someone who is looking for a pint size shadow, a lap warmer and protector. A guardian who knows that she may need to seclude Harley in another room while having company, someone who will protect Harley and will understand and work around and work through some of his less desirable personality traits. He is happy go lucky at adoptions, he will hop from one lap to another lap to another lap through out the day. But once in a home, he doesn't want to share his person with another. He loves to sit in laps and gives little kisses and jumps to be picked up. His favorite treats are tortilla chips and ice cubes. Please consider Harley. He really is a sweet boy and so deserving of a home that will understand and love him for who he is.
