I often hear people asking “How much does it cost to adopt a dog?” and I know they are speaking of the actual cost for the dog. Animal shelters usually have puppies, mature dogs and purebreds to select from and will allow people to spend time with a dog before adopting. House training: Dogs that have been put up for adoption are usually house-trained, as they have been living in someone’s home – either with their previous owner or a in a foster home.
Rescue shelters provide a safe environment and care until the right family comes along. Puppy mills have become a great problem in majority of countries not only due to the lack of proper care provided to the dogs but also the poor conditions they live in. Not all of these animals are vicious or “bad”, some of them are simply paying the price for their owner’s carelessness or disregard.
Animal shelters are required to adhere to the health policies in their particular community. Animal shelters are usually run by people who really like animals and so euthanizing the animal, especially if the animal is young, healthy and friendly, is a very difficult decision to make.
Or there is the RSPCA (or SPCA), or your local dog shelters. Dogs found at dog shelters are some of the most loving and grateful to be rescued pals you will ever find. Abandoned and abused dogs are now found in many shelters across the country and are waiting for a new owner to take them home and care for them.
Dog rescue is helping animals that find it hard to fend for them selves and putting them in the rightful homes where animal lovers will care for them. Dogs have proven to help disabled people live independently. 3. Unlike a purebred dog from a reputable breeder who will guarantee the animals health and temperament, a rescue pet comes with no guarantee (rather like children!).
