Often the journey to adopting a dog is nearly as exciting as the moment your pooch bounds into your living room for the very first time. As more and more people become aware of the plight of unwanted animals, dog adoptions have become increasingly popular. Practically, dog adoption can be an economical as well as humane choice. The cost to adopt a dog is a mere fraction of the amount one has to pony up to purchase a purebred pup. And while it is certainly not advisable to adopt a dog because it is “cheaper” (rescue dogs can have both behavioral and physical maladies that may be expensive to treat), the initial sticker shock is far less shocking when you bring home a grateful little shelter mutt.

As with so many things these days, the Internet is a great place to start your dog adoption adventure. Researching dog adoption shelters, free dog adoption centers, and finding the right dog adoption website is as easy as double-clicking! For example, the website Petfinder.com can show a hopeful dog lover what pooches are available for adoption in his area. The search radius can be set as close or far from your home as you choose. Petfinder.com allows users to search by animal, breed, age, size, gender, special considerations (e.g. not housetrained, good with kids), and what other animals are already in the home.

Before considering a dog adoption you want to consider whether your life and home are ready to welcome a canine family member. Before bringing a dog into the house you want to make sure you have picked up a few basic essentials including: a standard leash, extra long training leash, food, food and water dishes, brush, bedding, and an ID collar or collar and ID tag.

The decision to adopt a dog can lead to an amazing companionship that will enrich your life for many years to come. And with the prevalence of dog adoption websites, the early stages of researching your dog rescue options are as easy as 1-2-click!
