Have you thought about adopting a pet? Did you know that your choice of adopting versus buying a pet is a decision that can help save the lives of animals? Here's a list of some of our favorite reasons to adopt...
You will save a precious life
Each year, 2.7 million adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized all over the United States. If you adopt a loving pet from a shelter, you’re helping reduce this number.
Adopting creates space in shelters
When you adopt a new pet, you are not just helping the one you have adopted but you also end up making room for another pet in the shelter. Every year overburdened animal shelters take in millions of stray, abused and lost animals.
Adopting an animal reduces the influence of puppy mills
When you shop for a dog, a chance exists that the animal came from a puppy mill.
Puppy mills are factory-style breeding facilities that put profit above the welfare of dogs. Animals from puppy mills are often housed in poor conditions with improper medical care and are often very sick and behaviorally troubled.
Puppy mills will continue to operate until people stop supporting them. By adopting a pet, you can be certain you aren't giving a dime to a puppy mill.
You might get a “trained pet”
Most shelter pets wound up there because of a human problem like a move, a divorce, the birth of a baby not because the animals did anything wrong. Many are already house-trained and are used to living with families. So, chances are that your new loving family member will already be trained.
You will end up saving money
When you adopt a pet, the cost of spay/neuter, the first vaccinations (and sometimes even microchipping!) is included in the adoption price.
Your new pet might be famous!
