We're just pet lovers trying to make a difference...
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 12,000 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 Inernet Marketing
Liz Cava, Shelter Outreach Assistant
And our board members and co-founders,
David Meyer, President
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.
