Pet Adoption

Adopting a pet is a big decision. Determining whether you and your family are ready to take in an adopted animal requires information and much planning.

Here are some resources that can help you through the process of determining if you’re ready for pet adoption through caring for your new pet.

Pet Adoption Resources

  • Best Friends Animal Society- “Best Friends’ No More Homeless Pets Network brings animal shelters and rescue groups together from across the country to hold mutual adoption events, public education campaigns, and fundraising drives. Working together, these groups are able to save many more lives than they could in isolation.”
  • Petfinder- “Petfinder is an online, searchable database of animals who need homes. It is also a directory of more than 13,000 animal shelters and adoption organizations across the U.S., Canada and Mexico. “
  • American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals- While there are SPCAs and humane societies all over the country, the ASPCA is not directly affiliated with them. However, the ASPCA works nationally to rescue animals from abuse, pass humane laws and share resources with many shelters across the country.”
  • is North America’s largest non-profit pet-adoption web service that advocates pet adoption, gathering information from over 12,000 pet shelters in the U.S. and Canada, and presenting adoptable pet data in a searchable data base to facilitate pet adoption.
