Forgotten Ferals lists its homeless pets on

Another local shelter can now be found on, the Internet's oldest and largest database of adoptable animals.

Forgotten Ferals, based in Kirtland, recently joined more than 12,900 animal welfare organizations in the U.S., Canada and other countries to add its homeless pets to's list of more than 317,870.

Since its inception in early 1996, has facilitated about 20 million adoptions, making it the most life-saving initiative in animal welfare. The way it works: When someone enters criteria for a desired pet on the site, the site ranks the pets in proximity to ZIP code. Adoptions are handled by the animal placement group where the pet is housed, and each group has its own policies.
