Here Are 5 Reasons Why We Love Pet Adoption and You Should Too
Not fancy, not that young, and not perfect yet undoubtedly beautiful in their own way. That succinctly describes animals in shelters and rescues, patiently waiting to find their forever homes.
Why Should You Choose Pet Adoption?
When it comes to adding a new furry or scaly family member, people often think of big-name shops and frilly breeders. Maybe it’s the implication of elegance that lures them or the simple fact that they have plenty of cash to spare.
While the little fur babies displayed in those glass enclosures are certainly pretty, they typically can’t compare to shelter and rescue animals who offer these amazing benefits:
Have a Wide Selection
Breeders typically focus on a single breed while pet shops generally offer a maximum of tens of types of animals. In contrast, you get to choose from up to hundreds of cute and lovely furry animals in shelters. See if any pet shop can beat that!
With such a wide selection, you are bound to find that one pet that will truly love you and match your personality and preferences in every way.
Save Money and Time
Virtually all shelter animals are house trained, and they are vaccinated and spayed/neutered before being released. The former saves you from the long hours and headache of personally training pets to not pee on the floor or (heaven forbid!) scratch and bite the sofa. On the other hand, the free vaccination and spay/neuter easily costs hundreds of dollars, which you can now use for awesome toys and treats like our best-selling litter mat and premium cat toy (*wink wink*).
Fight against Pet Mills
You know what we hate about some breeders? It’s that they’re disguised pet mills. Okay, we’re not saying all of them are. There are certainly legitimate breeders who care about their animals and strive to search for great new homes for their pets’ babies. However, there’s no denying that pet mills are still thriving today. Supporting shelters and rescues through pet adoption is one of the best ways to stop these illegal individuals and organizations from prospering.
Save Lives and Support a Cause
Shelters and rescues require a significant amount of money to feed and care for the animals as well as maintain the place. Sadly, they often come out short in cash, pushing many of them to put the animals to eternal sleep.
When you choose pet adoption, you don’t only save the life of that particular animal you come home with. You also give the others left behind another chance, and you free up space for one more abandoned or abused pet to find a happier forever home. Wouldn’t you want more animals to live a longer, more blissful life through the shelter you support?
Receive Unparalleled LoveAbove all, adopted pets offer love that is as vast as the sea. They have known hurt and pain, just like how you feel after a heart-breaking separation with somebody dear. That’s also the reason why they show unabashed affection and will treasure every moment they spend with you.
Shelter animals may not look or act luxurious, but once you get to know them, your heart will surely be filled with warmth and joy. So if you’re thinking of expanding your family, be sure to consider adopting a pet first!
