Grass Valley animal shelter joins Petfinder online

Grass Valley Animal Control has joined other animal welfare organizations in the area that list their homeless pets on Petfinder, the oldest and largest database of adoptable animals on the Internet.

The site currently has more than 375,000 homeless pets listed and is updated continuously.

More than 13,700 animal welfare organizations in the U.S., Canada and other countries post their pets on the site.



For a complete list of shelter and rescue groups in the area, visit http://www.petfinder.com and scroll down the left column to “Find Animal Welfare Groups.”

A potential adopter enters search criteria for the kind of pet he or she wants, 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.

Petfinder.com was created in early 1996 as a grassroots project by Jared and Betsy Saul to end the euthanasia of adoptable pets. Since its inception, the site has facilitated approximately 20 million adoptions.
