There are approximately 6.5 million companion animals that enter into animal shelters each year, according to ASPCA. Prospective pet owners and these animals share a common interest: they are looking for love.
There are many reasons why it is best to adopt, not shop. For one, individuals that adopt from local animal shelters are helping to reduce the homeless pet population. They are also helping to lower the number of dogs and cats that are euthanized at shelters because they are deemed "not adoptable." Prospective pet owners can find both young and old aged dog breeds to satisfy the lifestyle and personalities of each unique person and family.
Adopt a Shelter Pet Day, on April 30th, highlights the importance of pet adoption to improve animal health and wellness. Pet adoption fees may vary today; but some pet adopters may have the opportunity to avoid pet adoption fees.
