Adoption: Consumer Reports endorsed

The August 2011 edition of Consumer Reports includes a number of ways to save on pet care. Adoption is recommended as one way to “Save a Pet and Save Money.”

When you’re in the market for a pet, consider getting it from an animal shelter or a rescue group, many of which specialize in particular breeds. You’ll get a good deal and do a good deed. Start by searching online at Petfinder, which draws on listings from more than 11,400 shelters and rescue groups. It recently had more than 262,000 listings, mostly cats and dogs but also some horses, rabbits, birds, and other animals.
