Why Adopt-A-Pet Was Created:
Adopt-A-Pet was created in 1997 to promote the adoption of shelter
animals and save homeless animals'lives. To put it simply, there are too
many animals and not enough homes.
Millions of adoptable companion animals are euthanized
(humanely put to death) in shelters across the nation every year because
of the companion animal overpopulation crisis.
Puppy mills (factory-like breeding facilities), "backyard" breeders, and
accidental litters all contribute to this tragedy by bringing more
animals into the world when there aren't enough homes for the ones who
are here already.We try to place these animals in foster homes
until we can find them good, loving permanent homes.
There are now several websites that are serving as search engines to
locate adoptable animals through the internet. In light of this, we have
decided that our next phase of work is to serve our local community as
deeply as we can, focusing mainly in the Omaha area and then throughout
The mission of Adopt-A-Pet is to promote the adoption of homeless
Adopt-A-Pet is committed to helping all dogs and cats in need of homes,
and to making sure that the people get matched with a dog or cat that is
