When you adopt a pet you literally save a life! There are so many cats and dogs available for adoption looking for their furever home.

Pet stores are no longer allowed to sell puppies (which is a very good thing), you can find many loving pets thru shelters, humane societies and rescues. There are beautiful, playful, loveable pets looking for a home because they were abandoned or could no longer live with their owners.

Caring for a companion animal goes far beyond providing food, water and shelter. It takes research and careful planning to bring the right pet into your home, and to make sure your lifestyle is the right one for your pet.

When adopting, you are making a commitment to care for an animal for the rest of his life that could mean 10 to 15 years for dogs and up to 20 years for cats. As you go through lifestyle changes such as moves, the birth of children and new jobs, your animal will remain a permanent part of your life. If circumstances change, will you still be able to care for your pet?

Please take a look at our Adoption listing on the main page, it will provide a picture, description of the pet and what organization they can be contacted thru to adopt.

Many pets are available at Petfinder.com and there is a good source of information at rightpet.com as well as Pets Answers to learn about many different breeds.
