One of my clients just told me about Petfinder, an online animal adoption site. This website has photos and videos of animals waiting for adoption from over 12,000 adoption groups. You can search for dogs, cats, birds as well as rabbits and reptiles. There’s even a “small & furry” category where you can find animals like hamsters, gerbils and ferrets. If you have the space, there are barnyard animals, horses and pigs looking for new homes, too.
You can specify the breed, age, size and gender of the animal as well and then do a search to find what animals are available at shelters near you.
I just love seeing wonderful uses of the Internet like this. Thanks Lisa for spreading the word.
