What is the difference between a shelter or rescue group and Get Your Pet?

Get Your Pet is an online community where people who need to find their pet a new home meet people who want to adopt a pet. Unlike a shelter, we don’t have a building with kennels and cages. Shelters and rescues are necessary last resorts for homeless or abused animals, but they are no place for pets. Get Your Pet’s mission is to make it possible for pets to stay out of shelters by helping them go directly from one good home to another.
