Adopting a pet is one of the finest ways to be happier. Instead of purchasing from a breeder, pet shop, or stranger online, adopting from a shelter or rescue group saves an animal's life.
You'll save 2 lives: These include strays, owner surrenders, and unsellable breeder animals. Most of these animals are kind and affectionate but got into bad circumstances.
Save Money: Buying a premium breeder dog or cat may cost thousands, not including yearly pet care.
Help End Commercial Breeding: Commercial breeding operations, or puppy mills, are horrors for animals.
You Get an Amazing Animal: All creatures are unique and imperfect. However, rescued animals bond with people differently.
You'll join Community: Rescue groups adore their animals and generally monitor them. Alumni meet-ups, Facebook groups, adopter gratitude events, and fundraising initiatives are all ways to remain connected.
