Adopting a Shelter Pet

April 15, 2016

Are you planning to get a new pet soon? Congratulations! It just so happens that April 30th is Adopt a Shelter Pet Day! Of course, we love to see pets going to loving forever homes on any day, but this is a great time to shine the spotlight on shelter pets. Below, a Tipp City, OH vet lists some great reasons to consider adopting from a shelter.

Save A Life

By adopting from a shelter, you’re saving not just your new furry pal, you’re also helping other animals in need. The spot that opens up after you bring your furbaby home will be filled quickly by another lovable pet in need of a good home.

Everyone Deserves A Second Chance

Many loving, sweet pets end up in shelters through no fault of their own. Some are pets that were lost, others may have ended up there due to unfortunate circumstances. Giving one of these sweet animals a second chance is a beautiful act of kindness.

Find Your Perfect Pet

When you go to a shelter, you’ll be able to look for that one special pet that really tugs at your heartstrings. Animal shelters have pets of many different breeds, ages, sizes, and colors. No matter what you are looking for, you’ll likely find your furry friend waiting for you in a shelter!

Save Money

Adopting from a shelter can be significantly cheaper than going through a breeder or pet store. You may also save on veterinary costs, since many shelters figure the costs of certain things, such as vaccines and spay/neuter surgery, into their adoption fees.

Support Animal Welfare

By adopting from a shelter, you’re actually helping not just your new friend, but other animals as well. The adoption fees will help provide other animals in need with the care, food, and supplies they need. It’s great to know that you’re helping to support such a wonderful cause.

No Surprises

When you adopt from a shelter, you will be able to spend a little one-on-one time with your new buddy. This will help ensure that you’re making the right decision, and choosing the pet that is the best match for you and your household.
