Welcome to Adopt-a-Pet.com! Thanks for stopping by!
Adopt-a-Pet.com (formerly 1-800-Save-A-Pet.com) is North America's largest non-profit pet adoption website. We help over 13,600 animal shelters, humane societies, SPCAs, pet rescue groups, and pet adoption agencies advertise their homeless pets to millions of adopters a month, for free. We're all about getting homeless pets into homes. We use the power of TV, the Internet, and a toll-free phone number to connect adopters with shelter pets and help pets go from alone to adopted. We're working to help the good people at shelters and rescue groups find homes for their pets. But we don't stop there.
We also provide useful and informative information on the human/companion animal relationship to help keep pets healthy and permanently in their loving homes. Our blog has articles, and our YouTube channel has useful pet training as well as entertaining videos, all produced by our expert staff of professionals in animal training and behavior, as well as human psychology.
Our pet-saving team executives include:
Abbie Moore, Executive Director
Dr. Pia Salk, Spokesperson
Dana Puglisi, Director of Marketing
Jennifer Jacobsen, Director of Animal Shelter Outreach
Laurie Wisneski, Director of Adoption Services
Jeff Howard, Director of Internet Marketing

And our board members and co-founders,

Amy Luwis, Vice President
Steve Abbey, Secretary.
Our small staff answered the call to volunteer in the massive effort to save pets stranded in and around New Orleans by hurricane Katrina and the flooding that followed, and we co-led the entire rescue effort for months. Check out our hurricane Katrina blog.
