While visiting an old friend last week, I met his cute Husky puppy who he said he had adopted for free from a shelter. I could not wait to get home and start a search for a free puppy, which I did by first listing all the possible ways so my ‘free puppy search’ would yield fruits quickly.
You can get a free puppy by emailing individuals or organizations with firsthand information on free puppies such as shelters, rescues, national and local kennel clubs, or breeders. You can also ask a neighbor whose dam has a new litter or search Facebook groups with a ‘free dog adoption’ handle.
Visiting pet shelters and rescues can also be done. But there are other ways you can get a free puppy. We present them to you in this article, starting from the least to the most advisable, as shown by the reverse numbering.
