Looking for a purebred?

You can find any breed of dog (or cat!) in a shelter/rescue group that is looking for a forever home. 25% of dogs in shelters are purebred, so please consider ADOPTING your “dream dog” or “dream cat” and saving a life, rather than promoting businesses that sell animals to make money. Follow the below steps:

  1. Go to or and search by BREED near your zip code.
  2. Google “(breed) rescue group” and find the organizations that specialize in the specific breed you are looking for. There are tons of breed-specific rescues that take in animals from all over.
