If you are considering adopting a Poodle from a rescue centre rather than buying a puppy, good for you! Work together with RescueGroups to achieve the highest possible visibility for our homeless, adoptable animals. We would like to post our pets one time to our own website and be able to share them with, not only the 5.2 million adopters at Petfinder but with the many millions of other adopters that access many other pet locating sites.
I now check PetFinder 3-8 times a day, and when I see a new listing, I inquire immediately. According to RescueGroups, Petfinder has blatantly stated that it refuses to work with RescueGroups and that doing so does not fit Petfinder’s business model. I’ve no doubt that in spite of the fact that PetFinder performs their due diligence, some puppy mills likely slip through the cracks.
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Apparently, organized Michigan Humane Society to not batch upload their pets to Petfinder, but rather they have trained a whole slew of volunteers that do nothing but manually enter the animals into Petfinder. For most common domesticated pets, they are not used to other surroundings and are more prone to just wander about the familiar grounds they have managed to cover with their stay with you.

Through the website, viewers can locate many small animals, including, birds, cats, dogs and rabbits, all available for adoption.
I have a tremendous respect for the many thousands of people who invest their time, energy, and financial resources helping animals in need of a new lease on life. For example your dog may suffer from a disease that needs to be taken care of immediately – veterinary costs are sometimes very high.
While our TOS (terms of service) are standard and do mention not removing the Petfinder logo, the reality is that there are NO logos and NO advertising in the data. The time it takes to manually list them on your web site instead of simply using a subset of the data we have already entered on RescueGroups is time that I cannot spend working with the animals.
Until we are able to adopt out more of the amazing cats we have, we are unable to help these wonderful animals. That’s all we’re putting on PetFinder now as they have made it too time consuming to get our pets listed there now.

Another BIG question before adopting a dog is – will you and your family have time for a puppy. You can contact your local animal shelter, or search for dog rescue organizations in your area online. All of us have worked very very hard to save pets’ lives, and this is the thanks that Petfinder gives us. No way.
