Pet adoption usually refers to the process of taking guardianship of and responsibility for a pet that a previous owner has abandoned or otherwise abdicated responsibility for. Common sources for adoptable pets are:
  • Animal shelters, in the case of dogs also known as dog pounds
  • Rescue groups
  • Pets which are found out of captivity without identification, and which remain unclaimed by any owner
  • Advertisements placed by individuals who are trying to find a new home for their pet
  • Pets that have been abused or neglected and have been confiscated from the offending owner
  • A fast growing source is online pet adoption. These sites have databases of pets, maintained by thousands of animal shelters, and are searchable by the public.
Dogs adopted from shelters are often referred to as shelter dogs or pound puppies; dogs adopted from rescue organizations are often called rescue dogs (not to be confused with search and rescue dogs). Shelters have put together informational websites to help the public choose the right dog for their family.

Pets are taken to animal shelters for many reasons.
  • Breeding: Breeders are a leading cause of overpopulation because they usually produce more pets than they can sell and often produce pets that do not fit their desired breeding specifications, and must be gotten rid of.
  • Death: Owner dies and no one in the family wants to (or can) keep the pet.
  • Changed circumstances: Financial or living arrangements change drastically and people feel that they can no longer provide an appropriate home for the pet. This might also include someone having to move to a new living situation where pets are not allowed.
  • Second thoughts: A pet was purchased after the spur of the moment decision or as a gift (frequently for Christmas). Some time afterward, owners discover that caring for the pet is much more work than expected, or requires more space or exercise than they are prepared to give.
  • Lost pet: Pet leaves home or cannot find its way back, and the owner does not succeed in finding it.
  • Health: Severe health problems make it impossible to have a dog in the house or impossible for the owner to care for the dog.
  • Practice babies: Shelters use this term for animals that have been adopted by couples, and who are then abandoned when the couple splits up, or when a real baby comes along and they no longer have the time or inclination to care for their pet.
  • Moving across borders: People leave the country; quarantine laws in some countries can be traumatic to pets and owners, so to avoid the stress, the pet is surrendered to an animal shelter.
  • Allergies: Many owners claim to have developed allergies to their pets, or that their children have developed allergies to their pets.
