Adopt a Pet is a website where animal shelters, rescues, and private owners list their pets for adoption. If you’d like to adopt a dog, cat, or other pet, you can use our website to search for pets and then contact the shelter, rescue, or private owner directly about their pet.

You will see photos of pets near you. You can also use the filters (menus on the left side of your pet search results) to narrow down your search by distance, breed, age, and more. Click on a pet’s photo to see that pet’s details.
Be sure to read all the pet's information on their page.
If you're interested in that pet...
- If the pet page says "Cared for by a Private Owner" click "Apply To Adopt"
- If the pet page says cared for by a shelter or rescue, click "Ask About Me". You can also scroll down to read that organization's Adoption Process and see if they have an Adoption Application and/or a facility with public visiting hours where you should Go Meet Their Pets.
If you don’t see a pet that interests you today, you can click on "Create an Alert" which will guide you through how to create and save a New Pet Alert. New Pet Alerts let you know when a new pet matching your search criteria is added to the site, sending you an email with a link to that pet's listing.
