If you’re a Gauteng resident with a loving home to offer a rescue animal, PICK a PET!™ is your one-stop online platform to help you choose your next best friend.

PICK a PET!™ is South Africa’s dedicated pet adoption website, helping animal shelters in and around Gauteng (and eventually the entire country) find loving homes for our furry friends.

The PICK a PET!™ founders describe the site as a one-stop shop for people looking to rescue animals – dogs, cats even bearded (or clean-shaven) dragons – from the shackles of shelter life.

Although animal shelters are doing the best they can to leisurely accommodate as many foster animals as possible, living in a 1 x 2m cage for the rest of your life sucks. PICK a PET!™ aims to consolidate all the gorgeous friends up for adoption on a national scale to a single platform, giving people an easily accessible online store to view and adopt the next love of their life.

They also provide information on different animals and their breeds as well as their personalities (so that you can avoid being the inspiration for a Cujo documentary) and have a forum where you can connect with other adopters and/or pet owners if you’d like to ask any questions or give any advice that you may have acquired from personal experience.

And for those who really want to go the extra mile, they also have a donation page linking directly to all the contributing shelters’ websites where you can make their often thankless jobs a little bit easier.

The PICK a PET!™ founders are passionate about animals and finding the right homes and owners for all our abandoned four-legged friends.
