Business Notes

Dewey Animals Inc., Centreville, recently has joined other animal welfare organizations in the area that list their homeless pets on Petfinder.com, the oldest and largest database of adoptable animals on the Internet. The site currently has over 250,000 homeless pets listed, and it is updated continuously.

More than 10,800 animal welfare organizations in the U.S., Canada, and other countries post their pets on the site. Dewey Animals Inc. Rescue pets can be viewed at http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/VA478.html. A potential adopter enters search criteria for the kind of pet he or she wants, and a list is returned that ranks the pets in proximity to the Zip code entered. Adoptions are handled by the animal placement group where the pet is housed, and each group has its own policies.
