What is the Best Way to Find Shelter Dogs in Evansville and Owensboro?

Ashley Sollars – Chaz the rescue dog!

When I was in college, I wanted a Yorkshire Terrier. I called every shelter within a two-hour radius and one day a rural little shelter called me back. They told me they had a Yorkie and he had been beaten and starved. I jumped in the car and was on my way. When I got to the shelter, they took me to the back kennel area and introduced me to Brownie. Brownie was NOT a Yorkie – he was a Chihuahua mix. They looked at me and said, “If you don’t take him we are going to put him to sleep. He’s bitten everyone here.” I couldn’t let the dog die so I paid the $25 and took him home. We’ve been best friends ever since – it’s going on year nine together.

Now, you can search for shelter pets in the area using the website or app, Petfinder.com. Just put in what you are looking for and violia! You have a list of local shelter pets. Granted, had I used this website, I might not have ended up with Chaz the Chihuahua but it’s a great place to start!
