Petfinder: The Greatest Thing Since Milkbones

Today is Adopt the Internet Day!

Petfinder Adopt-the-Internet Day has been helping needy animals find homes for 15 years… as of today. This is a great organization that has totally revolutionized the way we find our new furry family members. I was excited to participate in this event because this website truly changed my life three years ago, when I entered the search item “Boston Terrier” and found MidAmerica Boston Terrier Rescue via Since then, I’ve found my calling in animal welfare, I’ve found the best (read: most challenging and rewarding) furry companion ever, and we’ve had almost 40 foster dogs through our home. helped give my life more meaning. Think what they can do for you! Help us adopt the internet today by letting your friends and family know about Here are a few ideas from the website about how you can help others find out about Petfinder:
