Adopting a pet is a big decision. It’s a lifelong commitment to care for another living being. But when you adopt a rescue pet, that decision comes with a whole lot of love and extra furry kisses. Robert Stravinsky talks about a few reasons why adopting a rescue pet is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make.
Rescue Pets are already House-Trained
Many pets that end up in shelters are there because their previous owners were not able or willing to train them. This can be especially true for puppies who require so much time and patience to potty train. When you adopt an adult rescue pet, you’re likely getting a pet that is already house-trained and ready to live inside your home without any accidents.
Rescue Pets Don’t Cost as Much as Buying from a Breeder
Robert Stravinsky When you adopt a rescue pet, the adoption fee is generally much lower than what you would pay for a pet from a breeder. And that’s not even taking into account the added cost of things like spaying/neutering, shots, microchipping, etc. which are often included in the adoption fee.
You’re Saving A Life When You Adopt A Rescue Pet
When you adopt a rescue pet, you’re giving an animal in need a second chance at life. Every year, millions of healthy and adoptable animals are put down in shelters across the country simply because they don’t have a home to go to. When you open your heart and home to a rescue pet, you’re not only adding love to your life—you’re helping to save the life of an animal who needs it most.
There are so many reasons to adopt a rescue pet! Whether it’s the low cost, the fact that they’re already house-trained, or because you’re saving a precious life—adopting from your local shelter is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make. So what are you waiting for? Go give some love to an animal in need today!
