Campbell River area pets go online

The site currently has over 359,000 homeless pets listed,

Salvation Road Sanctuary Society, Campbell River, has joined other animal welfare organizations in the area that list their homeless pets on Petfinder.com, the oldest and largest database of adoptable animals on the Internet.

The site currently has over 359,000 homeless pets listed, and it is updated continuously. More than 13,500 animal welfare organizations in the U.S., Canada, and other countries post their pets on the site.

BC206 pets may be viewed at http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/BC206.html.

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, making it the most life-saving initiative in animal welfare.
