To narrow the search you can enter criteria for location, breed, gender and age.

Overstock is hoping to create a place where rescue groups and organizations can connect the thousands of animals in need of new forever homes with people looking to adopt a pet. The company rolled out their pet adoption section back in April 2014 and at the time they had 200,000 profiles of animals currently up for adoption including dogs, cats, birds, rabbits and even horses.
