Did you know that every puppy in Puppy Bowl comes from a great pet shelter? If you're thinking about adopting a pet, we've collected some resources to get you started in exploring the shelter adoption option. You'll find some great stuff at these sites.

Visit Our Dog Breed Selector: Take our questionaire to help determine what breeds may work for you or go directly to breed pages and we'll suggest available dogs at shelters near you.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) has information about pet adoption to get you started, including articles on pet care and finding the right animal for your family.

Petfinder: Need help locating a pet for adoption in your neighborhood? Try Petfinder's zip code search to see what kinds of pets are looking for a new home or find a local animal shelter.

American Humane will help you find out if you're ready to adopt a pet and learn more about the adoption process.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has articles about choosing a pet, shelter adoption and more.
