Visit our website or the profile page on Petfinder for our adoption calendar.

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.

      CASSIDY

      verified

      rescue
      Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Dallas, TX
      Posted Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier / Labrador Retriever (short coat). Cassidy is a 1-1/2 year old, 55 lb. Pit/Lab mix. She and her sister were found running down the street on the south side of the lake. She is very pretty and has green eyes. She LOVES PEOPLE and is playful and sweet. She is looking to bond with an individual or family. As a puppy she played with other dogs and we worked to socialize her. However, she is a DOMINANT female and tries immediately to assert herself. She is very picky about her playmates and will need careful introduction and "may" do well with a smaller male. She does NOT like larger females. Preferably, she should be in a home where she is the only dog. Cassidy needs a strong leader. She would benefit from more training but she does well on the leash and she listens. She craves attention and will be easy to train. She is crate trained and house broken. She is an energetic and strong young dog and will need daily walks and interaction. She would make an excellent jogging companion. WHITE ROCK DOG RESCUE is a Dallas, TX based group. Adoption fees are $220 and include all shots (Rabies, Parvo/Distemper, Bordatella and Lepto), deworming, sterilization, micro-chipping and dogs are started on heart worm preventative. Dogs are Heart worm negative unless noted otherwise. There is an application process and references will be verified. Home visits will be done on all serious applicants. Questions? Call (214) 507-4016 or email: adoptions@whiterockdog.org.
