Why should you adopt a pet instead of buying?

  • You'll be a lifesaver. In fact, you'll save TWO lives - the one you adopt and the one that takes his place in the shelter.
  • You'll help put puppy mills out of business. Do some research on the parents of that cute, little pet store puppy. Bred repeatedly, caged their entire lives, often matted, filthy and sick. Do your part to put an end to this barbaric cruelty.
  • You'll save money. Shelter pets have been vetted, vaccinated and spayed or neutered. Adoption fees are a drop in the bucket of the cost of buying and vetting a pet store puppy.
  • You'll help put an end to pet homelessness. When you adopt from a shelter or rescue group, you'll give a dog a second chance at finding a forever home and you won't add to the nation's pet overpopulation problem.
