2. Adopt/Rescue from shelters online:
If you want to adopt a dog or cat, you can go online to shelter websites and look at pictures of the dogs and cats available. Here is a list of Los Angeles County and City Shelters. The animals who have been there the longest are in danger of being euthanized, go to the LAST pages of adoptable animals FIRST to save lives. However, all the animals at shelters are at risk to other dangers including disease and emotional duress. Most pets who are adopted from shelters have ‘kennel cough’, which is comparable to the common cold. Find the pet that you are interested in, you can ask questions regarding the pets status if you call the number that is provided. Usually, you will have to go to the shelter to adopt the pet in person, or sometimes a rescue will assist in an
3. GO to the most crowded shelters to adopt!
LA City and LA County are two separate shelter systems. Further out in LA County such as Lancaster, Carson, Downey & Baldwin Park are the busiest shelters. Remember that animals in shelters are stressed, terrorized and not themselves. Often times the shelter will say an animal is aggressive, when he/she is simply petrified and protecting himself/herself. Take a look at this video which shows what can happen in just a couple days with the healing power of love: Chase.
All the shelters are over-crowded, so are the rescues! Homeless pets at shelters only get a short time to find a love connection. Fostering is taking a homeless pet(s) into your home for a safe haven to give them more time to find a home. Quite simply, FOSTERS are LIFE SAVERS. You may be at a shelter and connect with a dog or cat. Please consider adopting he or she for a period of time- loving, grooming and preparing them for a new home that you can help find. Connect with rescues in your area, they pull those in danger out of shelters and often need ‘FOSTERS’ to house them, many will help to find homes for them. It is so rewarding to save a life and find the right match of people and pet. If more people Fostered, many more lives could be saved. Check out Fosterfurkids.com
5. Adopt from rescues online:
For those who just can’t do the shelter experience, you can adopt from rescues. Rescues go to the shelters, save dogs and cats, get them spay/neutered, groom them, love them and know their personalities. Go to Petfinder, Pet Connect, Pet Pardons, Adopt a Pet.
If you want a specific breed, try a breed rescue. Just Google whichever breed you are seeking (ie German Shepherd Rescue) in your area. They have gathered that breed from shelters or owner surrenders (with today's economy is happening often)
