Finding dogs for adoption is made easy by searching from websites like Petfinder.com. Petfinder.com has a search engine that aims to help pets like dogs find homes by providing a fast and easy way for pet seekers to find these animals. By searching their website, you can find shelters with a no-kill policy. For example, searching for a baby Shih Tzu dog with zip code 10001 will match you to adoption centers such as Social Tees Animal Rescue Foundation. You may also find individuals who are committed to the ethical treatment of dogs.

The Humane Society not only provides tips for adopting dogs and references to additional resources, but it also has local chapters that shelter dogs that are available for adoption. Cesarsway.com also lists available resources for adoptable dogs such as the Brittany Foundation and the DEAR fund. The Cesar Milan Foundation encourages responsible behavior when adopting pets and discourages people from buying from pet stores, which often purchase from puppy mills. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals' website offers its own adoptable dogs at its Manhattan shelter in addition to links to no-kill shelters.
