Adopt, Don't Shop

Large puppy hug

If you are considering bringing a new pet into your home, there are countless animals waiting for a family to love them.

Animal shelters and rescue groups are filled with happy, loving pets. Whereas many of the puppies sold in pet stores were born in puppy mills, where the conditions can be so bad that they often result in health problems for the animal. Erase the stigma that rescue pets can be antisocial or aggressive! Most of these pets wound up homeless because of a move or divorce, not because they did anything wrong, and are typically house-trained. Bringing a new pet is a huge decision and not one that should be done impulsively. But if this is something you’ve wanted for awhile, check out the shelters and change a life.
