Are you looking for a house pet? Have you searched your local animal shelters and pet stores with no luck? I recently had a friend tell me how they found their pet using Petfinder. The site allows you to search for dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, birds, fish and barnyard animals in your local area. If you are interested in a pet, you then simply click a button to ask for more information and a representative will follow-up with you. You can also sponsor an animal with the Petfinder Foundation which will allow you to make a donation.
If you are not sure you want to adopt a pet just yet, the site also offers a host of articles about adopting cats and dogs. For example, if you plan on bringing home a dog, the site offers articles on what do in the first 30 days. You can also read their blog and watch videos.
