A couple weeks ago, I was reading articles on line about dog food for Spike, and one of them was on the petfinder.com site, where there was an ad for an adorably cute dog named Chip who needed a home. I twittered “holy crap, that’s a cute dog!” with a link to his page, and three days later the shelter emailed me, saying that they had received over 30 applications from people who came to their site either through my twitter post or through my site.
Oh, the power of the internets. They are lovely, aren’t they? I figured since Chip has a nice home, some other dogs should get one, too. Like Pedro.
And Biscuit, a pomeranian/chihuahua mix who lives in Marion, Indiana with his sister Flower, who also needs a home:
Petfinder.com works with animal shelters all over the country to post pictures and bios of adoptable pets who are in shelters and need loving homes. It’s a great way to find a loving animal without going to a puppy mill or irresponsible breeder.
I have to say I really prefer mixed breed doggies like my own adorable sweet dog Spike.
