If you are considering welcoming a pet into your family, it’s so important that you consider rescuing and adopting a pet from your local animal shelter or rescue group.
Why adopt? The Humane Society of the United States shares these top five reasons to “adopt, don’t shop.”
- You’ll save a life.
- You’ll get a healthy pet.
- You’ll save money.
- You’ll feel better.
- You won’t be supporting puppy mills and pet stores.
There are many rescue groups that offer their services to help place animals in need. How do you know if the group you’re dealing with is a reputable one? Look for groups that are attentive to your needs, answer your questions, are committed to the welfare of the animals, show attention to detail, and spay/neuter the animals.
Pets bring such joy to our lives! Animals in need of rescue deserve our love and devotion.
The National Mill Dog Rescue created this touching video portraying The Rescuer’s Creed. This creed exemplifies what it means to be a rescuer, and how your willingness to adopt an animal in need can change lives forever!
