Save a Life! Adopt a Pet-Directory.Com
Helping to unite loving families with homeless animals...
Adopt a Pet's Objectives:
- To help match up displaced animals with loving homes
- To help pet owners locate a local rescue or
shelter in the event a pet has to be given up
- Be the authoritative directory for animal shelters on the Internet and
thus a resource for those looking for a 4-legged addition to their family
- Provide information and guidance to those seeking to adopt animals, or
whom have already adopted animals
- Be an important resource to shelter and animal welfare groups
- Be a resource for people looking to make a contribution (be that time,
money, or love) to help animals
Educate pet guardians to reduce the
number of unplanned animal births by sterilizing their pets . For every person in the
United States there are 7 pets who need homes
Who we are:
Adoptapet-Directory.com is run by a group of volunteers, in our spare time. We
collect no fees from any of the groups we list, nor do we have any affiliation
with any of the groups we list. We do generate ad revenues from the ads and
some affiliate links placed on our website; and we donate a portion of these
revenues every month to animal shelters and rescues via volunteers working
on behalf of those organizations who research and submit additional
organizations to our directory. Since we began the volunteer entry program
in 2006, we have
donated over $9,000 to animal shelters and rescues
How we got started:
Adoptapet-Directory.com was started in march 1996 and began as an effort to assist one of
our local animal shelters. We gathered information on animal adoption and
care, and published pictures and descriptions of the specific animals the
shelter had available for adoption. As that shelter grew and developed their
own web presence, we branched out and decided to become a resource for animal
shelters and advocacy groups all over the world.
We originally owned the domain "Adoptapet.com" - but
were approached by the 1800-save-a-pet people in 2008 and agreed to sell
them our domain; since then we moved all our content to the
We appreciate (but don't require) return links from any animal shelter or
