GOUVERNEUR -- Friends4PoundPaws of Gouverneur has joined other animal welfare organizations in the area that list their homeless pets on Petfinder.com, the oldest and largest database of adoptable animals on the Internet.
A potential adopter enters search criteria for the kind of pet he or she wants, and a list is returned that ranks the pets in proximity to the Zip Code entered. Adoptions are handled by the animal placement group where the pet is housed, and each group has its own policies.
The site now has over 359,000 homeless pets listed, and it is updated continuously.
More than 13,700 animal welfare organizations in the U.S., Canada, and other countries post their pets on the site.
