I just want to see chihuahuas. I'm looking for mine. I see more other bigger breeds. I get that no matter where I'm searching.. it doesn't seem to work for me no matter the devices I've killed looking for my chi.. when I click on the breed CHIHUAHUA is says NO SUCH BREED (aahhh) Pepper is almost 16yr old if still alive. I believe these system flaws are preventing me from finding her. if the site worked correctly for me maybe possibly I might have found her.. my heart hurts so bad. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. PLEASE HELP

    PetfinderAnimal adoption site sucks

    No one at this site has any interest in finding homes for these animals. I question even if there are any animals. All they want you to do is give all your info on an application, and they refuse to give any info about the animals.
    Put pictures of young animals that are not young any longer or they don't even exist. Claims that animals have been adopted but are still on there site.
    Something is obviously wrong here. When you know you are interested in an animal, when you get the info that you need to make that decision that is when you visit the animal and if you click, then you fill out an application.
    Not beore. This site and everyone involved in it, needs to go.

        Petfinderpetfinder website

        Petfinder website recently started not allowing rescues in Texas to use their site to adopt dogs out of state, specifically in the Pacific Northwest. An area that we have all adopted over 3000 dogs in the last 2 years. 3000 dogs that would have been euthanized for no reason except lack of space in the shelters.
        Now our hands are being tied by petfinder and adoptions have come to a halt. 288 dogs were euthanized yesterday at ONE shelter. 288 dogs that rescue could not help because we have no way to adopt the dogs.
        Petfinder is to blame for this and there will likely be 200 more dog this weekend.
        This is unacceptable and petfinder needs to stop this immature cruel practice and let the rescues adopt out the dogs. Let us save lives.

          Petfindermy complaint is valid. and does not have to many

          Hello my name is janet. I adopted dixie a few weeks ago from lois. She delivered dixie to my home on easter sunday. I worked at the apache jct. Police departmeny animal control division for 8 yrs. I also had a whi/chi mix for 13 yrs. Everything was going fine. At the first time in the yard she commented that my fence needed to have some chicken wire around it so
          Dixie couldnt get out. I agreed. So the second time lois took dixie out to the yard. Dixie always wore a leash. I was just coming down the stairs when lois dropped the leash and went right thru the fence.in the mean time she went in my house and took my adoption papers in a blue folder. I looked everywhere for dixie. I see she was found and now up for adoption. Now I see that dixie is up for adoption. This is wrong. I don;t no why, please help me 9102772 phone #

            PetFinder WebsiteOngoing Technical Difficulties

            PetFinder hosts websites for individual animal shelters. I volunteer at one of them. For at least five motns, the shelter's website indicates that " PetFinder is having some technical issues. Not all of our adoptable animals are currently online."

            I've contacted them twice and received only non-answers. They are a non-profit but need to hire some techies who know what they're doing. It's obvious the bunch they have is totally inept. They'd be better off starting over than trying to fix all the problems they have!

            Use ADOPT-A-PET instead. They deserve the business - PetFInder certainly doesn't. They should be embarrassed.
