Adoption

Pet adoption usually refers to the process of taking guardianship of and responsibility for a pet that a previous owner has abandoned or otherwise abdicated responsibility for. Common sources are:

  • Animal shelters, in the case of dogs also known as dog pounds
  • Rescue groups
  • Pets out of captivity without identification, and which remain unclaimed by any owner
  • Advertisements placed by individuals who are trying to find a new home for their pet
  • Pets that have been abused or neglected and have been confiscated from the offending owner
  • A fast growing source is online pet adoption through not-for-profit websites such as petfinder.com. Public service sites such as these have searchable databases of pets, maintained by thousands of animals shelters, and are searchable by the public.
