Adopting an unwanted dog from an animal shelter can be a good idea for many people who want a dog. Some pet shelters have to put down animals if they do not get adopted. If a pet you see on says that pet is at a Rescue , be sure to read the pet description and the Adoption Process under that, and follow each rescue’s instructions. There are many dogs that are up for adoption, but generally they will be mixed breed dogs.
If you choose to adopt a pet from an animal shelter or animal adoption agency, you are not only saving a precious animal’s life, you are also greatly increasing its quality of life. Many animals at the NHS never see the day of adoption and are put down before finding a place to call home.
If you adopt from a dog shelter like the Humane Society you will likely pay a couple of hundred dollars. Once the animal shelter authorities are satisfied with the credentials of the new owners, the pet is given away for a fee. If you’re a renter, some shelters may require that you have a copy of your lease agreement or written permission from your landlord that you are allowed to have pets.
If you have not found an animal worth adopting then check back often due to new animals coming in daily. Maybe instead of getting a puppy you can look into getting an older dog that is not as adoptable as a puppy, but still deserves a good home. This is the best way we can ensure that not only we find the best suited animal for you but as well the best home for the animals in our care.
Sometimes we forget that most of the animals that become homeless are great pets that had less than stellar owners or the owners had to face insurmountable obstacles that made keeping their pet impossible. A true breeder will show love and care for the animals.
