People wishing to adopt a pet can find pets on the ASPCA and AdoptaPet.com websites. These sites have a variety of pets available for adoption in local shelters.
The ASPCA has two adoption sections. One is for the main ASPCA adoption hub in and around New York City, and the other page lets users search for local pets with a ZIP code and distance specification.
AdoptaPet.com has dogs, cats and other pets listed by shelters and adoption agencies. Users can search for specific breeds, species and other animal features within a certain distance of their ZIP code. Users can also search for specific shelters on this site.
