Adopt, don’t shop is a great motto to live by. If you are not too fussy about breed, sex and age you will probably find the perfect dog or cat to be your companion for life at your local shelter.
Twenty five % of the dogs turned in at the shelter are purebreds. If the selection at the shelter doesn’t suit you there are local rescues, Petfinder and Rescue Me to search. Statistics show 23 million people are bringing pets home annually. So-why are so many dying homeless and unwanted in shelters?
