Looking for reasons as to why you should adopt a pet rather than purchase them from mass breeders? Here are the top four reasons why:
You will help save a life
Animals that come to an animal are in need of a second chance at having a family and a home. Either they’ve been lost, given up, and just abandoned and left helpless. Adopting them will provide them with a brighter future that was once dim and shed the light of a new life in a loving environment.
Break the cycle of overpopulation
With thousands of animals being born each year, there are simply not enough homes to care for them all. Adopting a pet from a shelter will help weaken the cycle as roughly 10 million pet animals who cannot find homes are euthanised each year.
Adopting an animal from the shelter will help you support the housing rather than over breeding. A bonus is that you will also find great information and resources on how to care for your pet’s issues by trained professionals.
Stop animal cruelty in mass-breeding facilities
Purchasing a puppy from a pet store or online, usually means you support the puppy mill. These factory-style breeding facilities that provide low-quality care for animals and focus more on making a profit.
When you adopt a pet, the cost of vaccinations and neutering is often included in the price. This will help save you money and upfront costs as well as help you put the money towards training and housebreaking.
