A new pet adoption website was recently launched in late 2016 which seeks to keep pets out of animal shelters by directly connecting people who need to surrender pets with people who want to adopt, completely bypassing animal shelters according to PHILLY.COM.
Get Your Pet was launched in November and currently lists pets for adoption in the Philadelphia region.
Local Veterinarians examine pets and vaccinate them against rabies, if needed, at no extra charge before adoption.
