Dogs For Adoption

Whether you want to adopt a puppy – or an older dog, finding dogs and puppies needing homes just got a whole lot easier! We offer a complete directory of dog adoption shelters throughout the USA and Canada.

Dog Shelters and Rescues

Find the dog shelter nearest you, or search for a specific breed, such as shih tzu puppies for adoption using our a-z dog adoption guide. You’ll find places to adopt a puppy, and everything you need to know about dog and puppy adoptions.

Dog Breeders Directory

If you are looking for a purebred or designer puppy to add to your family, the only source from which you should get your puppy is from a reputable dog breeder. Never buy a puppy at a pet store, or from someone offering more than 4 breeds.

Pet stores source the puppies they sell from puppy mills, and anyone who has more than 3 breeds of dog in their program is a puppy mill, or at the very least, a backyard breeder.

Dogs and Puppies Central is proud to offer our growing directory of responsible dog breeders offering healthy, home raised puppies for sale to approved homes.
