For fifteen years, Petfinder has been making matches between pets who need homes and people who need pets.
To celebrate, they’ve asked people everywhere to spread the word about pet adoption today.
At the Petfinder site, you can find the Adopt the Internet All-Stars, pets determined to be most adoptable by their shelters and rescue.
Meet Odin, the purebred German Shepherd who gets along well with adults, kids, cats, and horses (wow!).
Or how about eager-to-please Riley, a Treeing Walker Coonhound looking for a jogging buddy?
Of course, not every dog or cat is going to be easy to place. Some are old, or sick, or need a special kind of home to thrive. So don’t just limit yourself to an All-Star. Maybe you need a dog who is just an all-star to you.
I’d like to give a shout out to Bobby at my local SPCA.
How can you resist that face? Bobby would be happiest in a home without kids or other dogs. But when he’s happy, he’s really happy. His friends at the SPCA report his tail reaches “whippingly-fast speeds when he’s wiggling and waggling.” Now that would be an ego boost to come home to.
So look beyond the all-stars. Your perfect match is waiting for you.
