Dogs, Cats, Bunnies, Ferrets and Birds can be adopted from the Humane Society, SPCA, Shelters, adopted from a Rescue Group or rescued off the street, their contribution to the household they are in, is invaluable.
Here are 6 simple reasons why you should choose pet adoption.
1. You’ll save a life
In contradiction to popular belief, many pets who have been placed in shelters have not been mistreated or “done something wrong.” Many pets have been taken there because of people problems, such as divorce, a big move, illness or death of the guardian, or they are simply too busy to adequately provide care for a pet.
4. You won’t be supporting puppy mills
These facilities sometimes house up to several hundred dogs at a time, thus compromising the health and well-being of a precious puppy. Do NOT buy any pets online.
By adopting a pet from a Shelter, an Animal Rescue Group or a pet adoption agency, you are not supporting these often inhumane businesses.
5. You’ll have a large selection
To make pet shopping easier on potential parents, many rescue groups, pet agencies and shelters have websites that allow people to search for possible pets by their age, sex, size, and breed.
This enables families to search from the comfort of their own homes, the hassle of going to noisy and overwhelming shelters and agencies is eliminated.
