Homeless pets available for adoption via the Internet

 Homeless pets in the area stand a greater chance of being adopted since All Pet Rescue, Pierz, joined Petfinder.com, the oldest and largest online database of homeless pets.
 “Once a pet’s photo and description are added to our database, its chances of being adopted go up substantially,” says Betsy Saul, president and co-founder of Petfinder.com. “No longer does a pet have to wait for an adoption day event or for someone to walk in the door at the shelter. Its information is out there for potential adopters to see from the comfort of their own homes on their own time schedule.”
 More than 7,700 animal welfare organizations nationwide and in Canada post their pets on Petfinder.com. All Pet Rescue pets can be viewed at www.petfinder.com/shelters/MN156html. Once visitors to the site find a pet they are interested in, they contact the shelter where it is housed. Each animal welfare group has its own policies and handles its own adoptions.
 Petfinder.com was created in early 1996 as a grassroots project started to end the euthanasia of adoptable pets. Last year the site helped 1.5 million pets find new families, making it the most life-saving initiative in animal welfare.  Petfinder.com is the largest pet site on the Internet and includes not only adoptable pets, but a large library of pet-related information, message boards, and more.
