Free poodles and other dogs can be found at FreePuppiesSale.com and other classified ad sites. Free pets are often advertised on eBay. Both sites allow the user to search by location or breed to find adoptable dogs.
Local animal shelters are good places to procure a puppy at little or no cost. Some shelters operated by the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals can notify you when a pet of a preferred breed becomes available for adoption. Most animal shelters provide spay and neutering services.
The ASPCA says that nearly 3 million unwanted pets are euthanized every year. Adopting a free pet in lieu of buying one from a pet store saves lives.
