#MetOnPetfinder is the official hashtag of Petfinder’s 20th Anniversary Celebration

For the past 20 years, Petfinder has worked to ensure that more adoptable pets find their forever homes. Since 1996, Petfinder has helped facilitate more than 25 million pet adoptions through its shelter and rescue member organizations.

How can you help?

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Petfinder is asking pet parents, pet lovers and pet advocates to join the celebration and its effort to donate $200,000 benefiting 20 shelter and rescue members. To make this donation possible, Petfinder is asking animal lovers to help generate one million views of its #MetOnPetfinder anniversary video, by October 24, which shows how adoptable pets have transformed the lives of their adopters.

What happens when the ONE MILLION views goal is met?  20 Petfinder shelter and rescue members will each receive a $10,000 grant from the Petfinder Foundation to help continue to transform the lives of the pets in their care and cultivate more lifelong relationships.

More than 25 million pets and millions of pet parents can claim that they #MetOnPetfinder since the site was established in 1996 – that’s an average of 1.2 million pets per year who have found their forever homes via Petfinder.

Are you ready to share your story?!  Petfinder families, advocates, partners and fans are encouraged to share their Petfinder adoption stories on social media by using the hashtag #MetOnPetfinder.

I wanted to take a moment and introduce you to Vexor, he was adopted by my little brother and it was the best decision that he made.


My little brother lives in California and had decided it was time to  He didn’t know exactly the dog he was looking for so he immediately started a search on Petfinder, so he could meet his best friend.  After some time searching the rescue groups and shelters in his area he found a dog that “spoke” to him.  He headed down to the shelter and took him on several walks and he knew right away it was the dog for him!  Vexor has flown on an airplane to Texas, visits the dog park on the weekends, constant beach trips and goes on daily walks.  #MetOnPetfinder

Petfinder encourages more people to consider adoption when adding a pet to their family. By removing barriers within the adoption process, Petfinder’s goal is to make the pet adoption process easier by connecting people with pets.
