PET Adoptions

Why should I adopt a pet?

  • ADOPT DNT SHOP BECAUSE When you adopt a pet, you are saving a life. When you buy a pet, you not only deny a homeless pet a home, you are supporting an industry that thrives on short-changing the welfare of animals. Puppy and kitten mills (which sell to pet stores) are in business to make a profit, so they churn out puppies and kittens as fast as they can. 



    It's important to take good care of a pet, but pets can also take care of their owners, providing both physical and mental health benefits.



Because pets require a lot of attention, especially dogs, who need to go outside every few hours, owners have a reason to get off the couch and be active. Adopting a shelter animal not only gives your pet a second chance in a happy home, but can also save it from being euthanized in an overcrowded shelter.

 

By taking home your new pet, you also make room at the shelter for another animal with nowhere else to go. Every single pet that is adopted frees shelter staff up to work with and prepare the next pet for potential adoption. Even looking to buy an animal from a pet store helps prop up the puppy mill industry, because pet stores separate "the consumer from the reality of where mass-produced puppies come from. One of the big myths about shelter pets is that all of them have behavioral issues or have been rescued from abuse. Shelter and rescue staff work hard to prepare pets for the transition to a new home and family.

 

"The goal of most shelters and rescues is to get pets out of their care and into homes as efficiently as possible. Shelter animals are often healthier than animals bought elsewhere. Adopting a shelter animal is cheaper than buying from a breeder.
