Want to find a special pet from the privacy of your own home? Local rescue organizations and animal shelters have joined with petfinder.com, an online database that features pictures and profiles of available homeless pets. More than 7,500 animal welfare organizations nationwide and in Canada post their pets on the site. When a visitor finds a pet they are interested in, they contact the shelter to meet the animal.
