Due to abuse, neglect and abandonment, there are many unfortunate stray dogs and cats just left outside to fend for themselves. We have requested an FTP account so we can upload our own data and have been denied simply because of our affiliation with RescueGroups.

In addition, there are even puppy rescue organizations that focus on saving golden puppies that have been abandoned or are in distress. For far too long, Petfinder has been putting its money-making objectives ahead of our pets, but I’ve ignored that (and their dismal customer service) because my pets get so much exposure on their site.

The adoption application can be filled out at the shelter, or you may download the application and email it to [email protected] Dog Shelters are operated under government supervision or are non-profit organizations (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals – ASPCA).

You would have to take your dog for a walk several times a day, must provide it with food and water two or more times per day. A good shelter or rescue organization knows their dogs well and will be able to match a dog to your needs.
