Online classified advertising website Craigslist.org features a section for advertising pets under the Community heading. ClassifedAds.com also lists pets who are free to good homes. Local newspaper classified sections, either in the paper edition or online, often feature free puppy ads. Check bulletin boards at vet clinics, pet stores and feed stores for fliers advertising free puppies. Ask friends and relatives if they know of puppies in need of homes.

Animal shelters and rescues generally charge an adoption fee for puppies, but under certain circumstances, they may waive the fee. For example, the Michigan Humane Society offers free adoptions to veterans on Veteran's Day. As of 2015, Good Karma Puppy Rescue offers free adoptions to volunteers who provide foster care for nursing mothers and their puppies.

Puppies offered for free usually require veterinary care, such as vaccinations and neutering. Often, adoption fees at shelters are less expensive than the cost of the vet care a free puppy requires.
