Free Pet Adoption
& Low-cost Pet Adoption

Free Pet Adoption, Low-cost Pet Adoption and/or Shelter Pet Adoption is a great way to find a new friend and addition to add to your family. You will find some of the best and most loving pets at your local Animal Shelters and you are literally saving these animals! They will bring you unconditional love for years to come! All breeds, ages and colors of cats and dogs are available. There are many benefits to adopting an animal at a shelter as opposed to purchasing a pet from a Pet Store, Puppy Mill or Breeder. There are also other ways to find free pets to adopt and I've listed those as well. With these "other" options, many times, if not for finding loving homes to adopt these pets, these pets too may have wound up in a Shelter, so either way, you are saving an animal when you adopt!

Free Pet Adoption
& Low-cost Pet Adoption

Free Pet Adoption

Free Pet Adoption or Low-Cost Pet Adoption is available at many shelters throughout the Country. You will find that some do ask for a voluntary donation, since the employees of the Shelter work as volunteers and are not paid a salary. Other Shelters and places that offer Pet Adoption usually ask a nominal fee that covers spading or neutering of the pet.  

When you get your Pet from a Shelter:

  • You are saving money;
  • You are saving a life;
  • The pet has already been vaccinated;
  • Checked out by a veterinarian;
  • Evaluated by an animal behaviorist;
  • The pet has almost always been spaded or neutered;
  • In the case of kittens/cats, since they're caged with litter, they're usually already litter box trained.
  • Best of all, in many cases, you are taking the pet to a better environment than they came from. They may have come from an abusive home, the streets, having been malnourished or even abandoned.

To find an Animal Shelter near you, simply visit The Shelter Pet Project and enter your Zip Code.

Clear The Shelters
This was formed to help to get shelter pets adopted. On a certain day(s), hundreds of shelters across the Country lower or even eliminate the cost of adopting a pet. Check the link to see if this program is available in your area, and see what day of the year it is being offered. Then go pick up a furry new friend and family member!

Other Options

Craigslist has a "Free" section, for some dumb reason listed under the "For Sale" category. Click on the word "free," type in the type of animal you seek (i.e., cat or dog) and see what's available in your area. You will often see people who have cats or dogs that are not spaded or neutered and have many puppies or kittens that they need to adopt out; or someone that is moving somewhere that doesn't allow pets, etc. If you adopt from a private owner, and the pet is a puppie or kitten, don't forget to ask the date they were born, so that you will have their birthdate. Also, for newborns and older animals, always ask if they have veterinary records that they are willing to provide you copies of, so that you can turn these over to the animals new vet.

Your Local Veterinarian
Your local vet will often know of newborn litters that are available or they may even have a tackboard available in their lobby for people to post free pet adoptions. Call ahead and ask the receptionist, or inquire during a visit.

I received one of my cats from our Vet. I had just lost my first cat to illness, and a tiny kitten walked past the glass entry door at the vet. They told us that this kitten would come from an abandoned building (that housed other cats) and venture out on her own to be fed by staff. We asked if they could catch this kitten for us the next time she came for food, and they did. They even gave her all of the initial shots and treatment for free! I still have this kitty (you'll see her picture scattered through-out the site), and although she's always been a scaredy-cat, she is now in a loving home and still highly motivated by food ☺.

Petco, PetSmart, PetSupermarket
These types of stores often offer pets for adoption and even have days when they hold special adoption events. They may even have a tackboard where people can post free pet adoptions. Simply call your local store to inquire or inquire within.

I would like to THANK YOU for this site...For a stay at home mom like myself, everything I needed for couponing, work at home info, etc is all provided on this one site. It gives me ideas and keeps me on my toes. THANK YOU!!! GOD BLESS YOU!! Damaris I., USA

OMG, I just love your site! It’s jam-packed with stuff to save me money! I never even knew about the cash back shopping thing until I came here. I shop online every couple of days and always went right to the store’s websites. Who knew?! I’ve already earned back $115.48 by signing up and using the sites you suggested. And the money I’ve saved by switching over 3 of my prescriptions to the one’s on the generic list at my local WalMart –wow! I still haven’t seen your whole site, there’s so much available. Just wanted you to know that Discount Fanatics ROCKS!!! Adrianne P., USA

Hi, I was new to couponing and I came across your site. I just wanted you to know that I read through your couponing 101 course and your related materials about couponing and it was so easy to understand, thorough and detailed. I love that I’m even able to print coupons from so many sources right from your website. It’s amazing how much information you provide to us for free and I thank you. God Bless. Trina, USA

I got sick of my cable tv company raising their rates, so I was looking for alternatives to paying for the high price of cable like many others. Your free tv episodes list is GREAT! The links to the Networks and Cable Networks don’t just take me to their homepage, it takes me directly to the page where I view the tv episodes. Man, you guys are on the ball.  I come here everyday to link to whatever program or network I plan to watch. Matthew B., USA
