)-- Think you can only adopt dogs and cats? Think again. Starting off 2012 on the right paw, Petfinder.com is announcing that it currently has more than 100 types of pets available for adoption, including 37 reptiles or other animals with “scales and fins,” 34 types of birds, 12 barnyard animals and 16 “small and furry” adoptable pets.

“Many people already know that cats and dogs can make great pets, but I bet most have not experienced the friendship and bond you can form with goats or chinchillas – so-called ‘unusual’ pets,” said Betsy Banks Saul, co-founder of Petfinder.com. “Whatever your personality type, fitness level, age or lifestyle, there is the right kind of pet out there for everyone.”
On Petfinder.com right now, there are more than 360,000 pets from over 13,600 shelters and rescue groups across North America available for adoption at any given time. Adopters can log onto www.petfinder.com and simply enter their zip code and what kind of pet they are looking for. Petfinder.com will identify the furry, feathery or scaly friends that fit their criteria, starting with those at the closest shelters and rescue groups.
