Adopt a Pet for Free

Are you wondering how to adopt a pet for free? It’s really quite easy to find a free pet if you look in the right places. You just need a bit of patience as it can take some time to find one that is free. If you look in the right places and talk to the right people you will be surprised with how easy it is to adopt a pet for free.

Please keep in mind that even if you do get your furry friend for free there will still be ongoing costs. Pet ownership is not cheap. All pets require food, grooming, toys, shelter, and veterinary care. So be sure to consider the cost if money is tight. Okay – I’ll stop preaching and start helping …

Free Pet Adoption Sources:

  • Craigslist
  • Kijiji
  • Newspaper
  • Bulletin Boards – especially at pet stores
  • Word of Mouth – tell everyone you know that you are looking for a free pet

There are constantly free pets for adoption in the newspaper, online at Craigslist & Kijiji (check the pet forums and pet ads), and on bulletin boards at pet stores. Quite often you can find a pet for free just by telling your friends, family and coworkers what you are looking for. This is how I got my Border Collie. Unfortunately there are always pets available for adoption. I say unfortunately because more animals are born each year than there are homes to keep them – even though around half of all homes in North America have at least one pet.

Nearly Free Pet Adoption

  • Humane Society / Animal Shelter
  • Pet Rescue

Pet Rescues, Animal Shelters and the Humane Society do have pet adoption fees but they aren’t always very high. Normally it is just enough to cover some of their costs including Spaying or Neutering and vaccinations. These are costs that you would have in most cases anyhow.

So you see, it is possible to get a free pet if you look in the right spots. Now the key is to find one that is right for you! I hope you’ll find this site helpful in that regard.
