Animal Shelter Appreciation Month

November is Animal Shelter Appreciation Month, and we love our local animal shelters and all the hard work their staff do to keep homeless pets healthy, happy, and sheltered. Here are 5 reasons why you should consider adoption when adding your next furry friend to your family.

1. You have the pleasure of adopting an adult pet.

When you buy a puppy or a kitten from a breeder or a pet store, you can’t be sure how that fur baby will be when they grow up. When you adopt an adult, you can match your personality to your new pet’s personality, taking out guesswork while you find your new best friend. With the bonus of skipping the house training.

2. Your whole family can be a part of the experience.

Going to a shelter and meeting all the adoptable pets isn’t only fun, but it can also be gratifying and a great learning opportunity for your family. Experienced and trained staff at your animal shelter can be a great resource of information for anything from general care to training to preventive medicine recommendations.

3. You have a great selection of animals.

Shelters have dozens of adoptable pets in all shapes and sizes, just because it’s a shelter doesn’t mean you can’t find purebreds, puppies or kittens, healthy pets, active pets, well-trained pets, pets good with children, etc. The staff at the animal shelter know their animals best, and they can help find the best pet for you.

4. You can help end pet overpopulation.

There are thousands of pets across this country that have not yet found their forever home. By taking one animal out of the cycle of homelessness and overcrowded shelters, you can help maintain healthy pet populations. And by adopting an animal from a shelter, you are not supporting cruel puppy mills.

5. You can save a life.

Every pet deserves a second chance at a family. Whether these animals were given up on, abandoned, or never knew a home to start with, you are giving them a second chance at a happy, loving life.
