The process is rather simple and generally requires an adoption fee and sometimes a pet owner check. This helps them to know what kind of pet owner you have been in the past. It is always a good idea to spend time with the dog before you adopt it. If you have children you should bring them along for the first orientation.

Free Dog Adoptions

The orphaned pet population on a world wide scale continues to increase at a rapid speed and is becoming an epidemic. The need for loving homes is larger than ever. The reason for this problem is owners who fail to spay or neuter their pets. Some organizations are even offering veterinarian reimbursement to owners who have their pets fixed.

If you find a dog you wish to adopt at one of these clinics you must first fill out an application.

Dog Adoptions

Dog adoption generally refers to the taking over of ownership and responsibility of a dog, which the last owner gave up. You can find dog adoptions through a shelter, rescue group, or through a non-for-profit organization online. Dogs end up in shelters for many reasons, such as its owner dies, someone has to move or their financial situation changes, a dog is lost and can not find its way home, a person develops health problems and can no longer care for the dog, or develops allergies. The Humane Society of the United States estimates that three to four million dogs and cats are euthanized every year, due to a lack of homes.

The adoption process for dogs is fairly simple and can take anywhere from thirty minutes to two days. To adopt a dog you will need to fill out an application and a questionnaire. If both are accepted the shelter will call any landlords that you might have, to make sure you can have the dog where you live. If this checks out then in some cases, someone will c…

Dog Adoption

Paloma is a runner. She loves to run. She doesn't run anywhere in particular, mind you, she just enjoys the experience. Sometimes she gets to run in wide open spaces, like at the park, sometimes she runs alongside her mom's bike, and sometimes she just runs back and forth through the house. To her, it doesn't much matter, just as long as she gets to run. The way her life started out, however, it was possible that she might never have gotten the chance.

Paloma is a one-year-old half English setter/half English pointer mix. Her name, which is Spanish for "dove," was bestowed upon her because as a very young puppy, she was entirely white. The result of an accidental breeding between two show dogs, Paloma and her six sisters were unexpected and unwanted by the owners of both parent dogs. Fortunately, all seven dogs made their way to a pointer rescue shelter, and have since all found happy homes.

Paloma's story is not a unique. Thousands of dogs across the country a…
