Pet Adoption is the number one way people acquire their pets today. Install a fence around the yard to keep stray animals out and pets in. However, it becomes necessary when the animal shelter does not have sufficient funds or the required manpower, to look after all the animals that are brought into the shelter. Adult dogs are often housetrained, and they have adult bladders.
There are some fine animals that, unless adopted, have to be sadly put down. This Valentine’s Day the RSPCA along with Hill’s Pet Nutrition will launch a campaign to find loving homes for 50,000 cats and dogs, kicking off with an adopt-a-thon Valentine’s weekend, February 13 -14.
Close to 700 puppies were rescued by the Humane Society, and those in good health were sent to animal shelters for adoption. Some things to consider before adopting your dog. They can be very helpful in drug detection, rescue operations, in hunting and as guide dogs.
There is an alternative – adopting a puppy or adult dog. Unfortunately, there are only 3,500 shelters in the U.S., which if you look at the numbers just are not enough to house all the animals. Also if you or someone in your family loves to skateboard he is just the right dog.
Some of the advantages of adopting from a rescue are they often know a lot about each of the pets in their care, since the pets may be in foster homes. If having more pets in your home is nut not going to happen, you can still get involved in rescue by providing transportation between homes.
