The Shelter Pet Project is an organization whose main goal is to ensure animal shelters are the first place people turn to when looking to adopt a pet. The motto embraced by The Shelter Pet Project is, “A person is the best thing to happen to a shelter pet. Be that person. Adopt.”
Here’s how they help:
- Pet Search– Enter your zip code into the Search For A Pet section and a list of available cats and dogs for local shelters will pop up. You can click on a pet’s image and it will take you to a page with a link to connect you to the pet’s full profile and adoption information on Petfinder.com
- Find a Shelter– The Find a Shelter section allows you to enter your zip code for a list of shelters near your home. You can see what animals are available at certain shelters and it also gives you an idea where you can volunteer if interested.
- Learn About Pet Adoption– This informational section makes people more aware of shelters, how long an adoption process may take and the cost to adopt from a shelter.
