ZooToo.com - Although every pet deserves a loving forever home, some animals are overlooked at shelters and rescue organizations for various reasons. Perhaps they have special needs, perhaps they're senior pets, or perhaps they belong to a breed that has an unfairly bad reputation.
Fortunately, to provide these pets with more opportunities to find homes, our friends at Petfinder.com have helped to launch Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week, taking place this year from September 17-25.
Even if you're not ready to adopt another pet, you can help to spread the word about this crucial event. Petfinder.com has put together these valuable resources to pass along information about adoptable pets from coast to coast.
Pet lovers who are on Facebook can RSVP at the Less-Adoptable-Pet Appreciation event page, and invite your friends online to join in, too!
If you have a friend or acquaintance who is thinking about adoption, Petfinder has also compiled a special photo gallery of shelter-nominated pets who have been passed over for whatever reason.
The Petfinder main event page also has other resources, including blogger badges and special forms to search and contact rescue groups near you about less adoptable pets that may be in their shelters.
