Utah's Perfect Pointers has recently joined other animal-welfare organizations in the area that list homeless pets on Petfinder.com, the oldest and largest database of adoptable animals on the Internet.
The site currently has more than 300,000 homeless pets listed, and it is updated continuously. More than 12,500 animal-welfare organizations in the U.S., Canada and other countries post their pets on the site.
Potential adopters enter search criteria for the kind of pet they want, and a list is returned that ranks the pets in proximity to the ZIP code entered. Adoptions are handled by the animal-placement group where the pet is housed, and each group has its own policies.
