One of the most valuable tools our Humane Society has these days is the computer. Another is the digital camera. Add internet access and we have an effective way to reach thousands of people who would never know about our shelter and its residents otherwise.
And we've found that the best way to reach people on the internet is through a national site called petfinder.com. We can post our adoptable animals on petfinder at no cost. As a result, we've had virtual visitors from as far away as New Jersey and Maine to adopt animals from our little old shelter here in Danville, Kentucky.
While these out-of-state adoptions are rare, we have adopted many dogs and cats to people in Lexington, Louisville, Somerset, Frankfort and other Kentucky cities.
Whether you're looking for a dachshund, a doberman or something inbetween, petfinder.com is the perfect place to find the dog of your dreams. With more than 150,000 adoptable animals from across the U.S. listed, you can find just about any breed you want even though it may be in Boston or San Francisco. Don't want to travel that far? Just limit your search to Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio.
