Saving Lifes of Animals Victims of Economy

dopt-a-Pet.com, North America's largest non-profit pet adoption website, announced the expansion of its pet adoption database to include rabbits, horses, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, farm-type animals and other small pets. This is in addition to the already extensive Adopt-a-Pet.com database of cats and dogs available for adoption across the nation.

“We expanded our database because there are many other pets aside from cats and dogs that need loving homes,” said David Meyer, founder and president of Adopt-a-Pet.com. “It’s a very timely expansion because the state of the economy and home foreclosures are causing many people across the nation to relinquish their pets to shelters. Our new search database will allow people from anywhere to access photos and descriptions of pets available for adoption from rabbits to birds.”

Every year in the U.S., over seven million adoptable cats and dogs are killed mainly due to pet overpopulation. That number doesn’t take into account the many other types of pets that are also homeless and often put to sleep.

“Over 100,000 adoptable dogs and cats are currently on our site, where they can be seen by millions of potential adopters, and thanks to a grant from Petsmart Charities, we are thrilled to be able to extend a hand to animals of other species as well," said Abbie Moore, executive director of Adopt-a-Pet.com. “We can't wait to help animal shelters and rescue groups find homes for all the types of pets in their care.”

The new search database is currently up and running at Adopt-a-Pet.com.

Something that you can do that will help you cut costs is to find cheap (or free) packing materials. You may even have the ability to come across a place that will give their boxes away once they happen to be used. Buying boxes or containers yourself can be very costly, however, you can save money by checking using the employees at your local supermarket to ascertain if they will allow you to have some of their boxes free of charge.
