When you look at the make-up of American families today, it is rare to see a home where a pet is out of the family. According to the latest data from the APPA National Pet Owners Survey, 67% of households – or approximately 85 million households – have a pet. Of these households, dogs and cats top the list of the most popular pets. 63.4 million and 42.7 million households have dogs and cats, respectively.

In researching the history of animal shelters and rescue organizations in the country, nothing turns out to be as problematic as the lack of a central reporting system to collect data about these organizations. Most of the animal shelter statistics available and accepted today are estimates based on multiple period surveys, including the aforementioned APPA National Pet Owners Survey along with the AVMA US Pet Ownership & Demographics Sourcebook. Without a nationally codified and streamlined procedure for collecting, organizing and reporting protection data, there was a serious lack of transparency with regard to the country’s protected areas. This makes it difficult not only to compile accurate statistics on protected animals in America, but also to understand the real state of animal welfare in the country. This is the first step in improving this animal welfare.

If you’ve been thinking about bringing home a furry companion, be sure to read on. Stacker has compiled a list of dogs available for adoption in Newark on Petfinder. It includes age, racial makeup, temperament, and needs. It is important to note that pet adoption is a huge responsibility and requires available savings on emergency and routine veterinary care, a daily routine and schedule for cover if the puppy needs to be left at home during the day (e.g. dog walkers ) and time and attention to educate your newest family member. Make sure to carefully examine your breed research to determine which type of dog will best suit your lifestyle.

Without further ado, here are adoptable dogs in your hometown.
