An addition of a pet to your household is one of the best gifts you can give yourself or your family. When it comes to getting a new pet, you may have many options, but adopting a pet is always the best choice.
Saving a Life
When you adopt a pet, you’re saving a life. Each year, approximately 2.7 million cats and dogs are killed because shelters are too full. Whether you adopt a local pet or use an organization to rescue a pet from another country, you likely saved that pet from being euthanized. In fact, when you adopt a pet, it can be argued you’re saving two lives! You just saved the pet that you adopted and made room for the shelter to take in another stray.
