Pet adoption is how people try to care for animals that have been abandoned, neglected, abused, lost or otherwise are homeless. Just like humans, animals have their own ‘personalities’ or idiosyncrasies that may make them more or less suitable for you or family. You can always check what dogs are available at local shelters, rescue organizations, and animal control organizations. Rescuegroups is the one who has been telling us for 2 years that they could import our pets into Petfinder when they were told by Petfinder 2 years ago they could not.
Animal Planet owns petfinder now, I wonder if the powers to be” really know what is going on or they bought petfinder and left the original staff in control…. The fact that Petfinder has lost sight of how precious this time is to rescue organizations indicates that Petfinder’s management has become self-aggrandizing and arrogant.
At CatNap we pride ourselves in helping you find the best fit for your lifestyle, family members, and other pets. Most importantly, a good Pug rescue centre will never have you pay all of the adoption fees before you meet the Pug. They are a no-kill organization and aims to rescue animals from overcrowded shelters.
I think this is the guy who needs to hear from everyone…he is the CEO of Discovery Communications LLC (parent company of PetFinder) and he scrapes by on a measly $5.5 Million per year. Located in Riverwoods, IL, just north of Chicago, you will find over 100 dogs (and over 300 cats) eagerly awaiting their new forever home.
We have cats waiting to get in the shelter, are receiving dozens of calls from people every day, and emergency emails from municipal shelters who have reached their own capacity. Dogs learn about wheelchairs, crutches, walkers and such, so that they can walk into a facility with the hustle and bustle of people in lab coats and sometimes noisy equipment, and be completely nonplussed.
