Adopt your next puppy

Make adoption your first option.  There are millions of puppies and dogs of all ages and breeds in shelters or with rescue organizations across the country.  These dogs deserve a chance at a happy life with a forever family.  Check out your county’s shelter or animal control facility for available dogs.

Looking for someone specific?  Every breed recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC)  has a corresponding breed club and rescue group.  Additionally, there are plenty of independent breed-specific rescue groups.

You can search available dogs by breed, age, and even location at Petfinder or Petango.
