For the past few weeks I have been thinking about getting a dog. My very own dog. Although I have not made a final decision on whether or not I want to commit to a dog right now, I have been spending a lot of time on Petfinder, which is now my newest favorite social media.
Petfinder is a “for-profit” website that operates the largest online pet adoption website for North America. Petfinder has helped find over 25 million homes for these animals. They have animals available for adoption ranging from dogs to rabbits.
Type of Pet
Petfinder is super easy to figure out, making it available to everyone and anyone who is looking for a pet. Petfinder makes it simple by applying filters to when you search. For example, you can filter out what type of animal you want, they have dogs, cats, rabbits, mice, and even hedgehogs!
After you decide what type of animal you want, you can set your location up to find pets near you. You can set your location up to either close to you like a 25 mile radius or even up to a 100 mile radius. It depends on how far you are willing to travel to find your loved one!
Next after applying your location, you can apply a variety of filters in order to find your perfect pet. You can be as selective as finding a certain breed of dog, size, age, and if they get along with other pets. Once you apply your filters, you’ll see hundreds of available dogs for you to adopt. But be careful, because the faces you’ll find you will fall in love with right away so it can be dangerous! You might find multiple different pups you want to take home!
Why Petfinder works
Petfinder is favored by animal lovers everywhere because it makes it simple and very convenient for anyone who wants to adopt a pet. Petfinder also makes it accessible for shelters across North America to promote their shelter and make the possibility of finding animals a forever home quicker than normally. All across Petfinder’s website you’ll find advertisements for shelters, making the idea of adopting rather buying animals more of a main stream concept, which is exactly what these animals need.
