Looking for Free Pet Adoption Opportunities by Louise Johnston
in Family / Pets (submitted 2013-01-09)
Often, people who have never had pets before entertain the thought of having pets when the opportunity for free pet adoption arises. Those who entertain the possibility of using these free channels often do not request to get their own pets because they are confused as to how to go about the entire process. Luckily, there are a lot of adoption centres and shelters that can assist families and homeowners in their pursuit of the perfect pet.
One of the best places to look is a rescue organization. These rescue organizations for pets are part of a big effort in order to help save the almost 7 million pet dogs and cats that die due to the lack of care and overpopulation in the streets. Their goal is to keep these animals of the streets, and possibly, find for themselves a sustainable home to stay in for the rest of their lives.
With this goal in mind, these rescue organizations often try their best to make sure they are able to find the best possible home for the pets they have rescued. They do this firstly by making use of the services of volunteers. More than a strategy to cut costs, the use of volunteers in the facility helps them make sure that they know the pets they have very well and that these pets are well taken care of.
This is because volunteers at pet shelters and rescue organizations are often individuals who are very much interested in taking care of animals, and invest time and effort in getting to know animals in order to give them what they need. Because they know these animals so well, they are also able to know what sort of environment will best suit the pet once it is ready for adoption.
They also have a series of application steps and screening interviews for prospective adopters. This helps them assess the intention of the people seeking to adopt pets. Moreover, they are able to assess which pets may be most compatible with the people seeking pets to adopt. Through the series of interactions these volunteers have, they are able to cross-reference about the pets they've taken care of with the personality of the prospective owners.
Some of these individuals seeking to adopt pets can come into the facility already looking for particular breeds, or are more inclined to a pure-bred dog or cat over a mixed breed. What they may not expect, however, is that these rescue facilities can have a 30% population of purebreds at any given time. This, of course, is not to disparage the remaining 70% of the hybrids, who are equally wonderful as pets.
As they go through the entire application process, these rescue facilities often offer adoption counselling, which will allow the individual or family adopting to cope with the challenges of adjusting to a new pet. After all, they have to make sure that their current home and lifestyle conditions are conducive to giving love, attention, and care to a formerly unloved pet.
If, for some reason, some incompatibility results regardless of the preparation already put into place, these rescue organizations offer individuals the opportunity to return a pet. This is to help reduce the probability of pet owners simply leaving their pets out in the cold, or neglecting them because of an inherent dislike. At the end of the day, the goal of these rescue organizations is to keep these pets in safe homes, making an incompatibility compromise necessary.
At the end of the day, free pet adoption shouldn't scare people, especially with shelters offering as much assistance as they can along the way.

Not taking credit for this phrase - Louise would advise you - when looking to add a pet to your life "adopt, don't shop"
