Short post today to remind everyone it’s Adopt the Internet Day on Petfinder. Petfinder is 15 years old, and has helped thousands of animals find their forever homes. Sometimes it takes a while; no one wanted Our Best Friend after several months on Petfinder, so he just stayed with us. And so many of the amazing dogs at our dog park are rescues. But not every animal on Petfinder is so lucky. Some are in high-kill shelters waiting for someone to adopt or foster them before their time runs out.
So get familiar with the rescues in your city. Do a search on Petfinder, see what animals they have listed. Maybe you can’t make the total commitment that ownership requires, but maybe you can foster a pet and buy a little time. Puppies, kittens, ferrets, rabbits, even parrots– lots of pets needs homes, and a home without a pet is a home missing the most unconditional love in the world. Give an animal a home, and give yourself the gift of love and devotion only a pet can bring.
