Petfinder is a strong community of homeless animal adoption shelters and rescue groups. The cumulative effect of this community has become a powerful, enabling force in the world of animal rescue. Shelters and adoption group members have reported that more than 40% of their adoptions are from Petfinder (Source: 2014 Petfinder Member Annual Survey).
Members also report that pets adopted via Petfinder are returned less often. For many organizations, this makes Petfinder THE MOST effective advertising medium. Since it is FREE, it is certainly the most valuable.
Petfinder membership allows you to post your adoptable animals in our highly popular searchable database and you will have access to exclusive resources and benefits available only to Petfinder members.
