paw print Dogs for Adoption in Florida

Florida, the sunshine state, like many other states has a growing problem. Shelters are being over crowded by dogs and other pets. One of the main reasons for this phenomenon is owners are not responsible enough to spay or neuter their canines. There are millions of dogs, many mix breeds, waiting to be adopted in shelters as well as pure breed rescue groups.

Ever since the internet was available to most consumers, searching and finding adoptable dogs has become an easier task. If you’re looking to adopt a dog from Florida, an out of state dog, or just simply searching to adopt a dog and you live in Florida, here are some reliable website that can help you with your search: http://www.pgaa.com/florida.html, www.petfinder.com and www.1-800-Save-A-Pet.com.

Before adopting a dog do some researcher on the type of dog that will fit well with the geography and weather in Florida. Florida is warm weather state, and dogs that have thick furs might be a bad fit. However, the exception to the rule is if the dog is regularly groomed (remember not to shave off all their fur as it serves to protect them from the sun), has a cool or shaded area, and gets plenty of water and exercise. Satisfying these conditions will help any dog live comfortably almost anywhere.

Every state, city and county has laws that protect dogs and other animals. Florida like many other states has specific laws, rules and regulations that must be followed when adopting a dog. You can find information about these laws at http://www.floridaanimalcontrol.org/ by clicking on Florida Statues. There you’ll find important information that will be handy when adopting a dog.

Adopting a dog or any kind of animal is a great responsibility, think before adopting.
