Bremerton pets go online

Collar of Hope, of Bremerton, recently joined other local animal welfare organizations that list homeless pets on Petfinder.com, the oldest and largest database of adoptable animals on the Internet.

The Web site currently has 301,000 homeless pets listed and is updated continuously.

Nearly 12,000 animal welfare organizations in the United States, Canada and other countries post their pets on the Web site. Collar of Hope Rescue pets can be viewed at www.petfinder.com/shelters/WA414.html.

A potential pet adopter enters search criteria for the kind of animal 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 1996 as a grassroots project by Jared and Betsy Saul to end the euthanasia of adoptable pets. Since its inception, the Web site has facilitated approximately 15 million adoptions.
