Why Should You Adopt A Dog?28. June 2017
Thinking of adding a pet dog to your home? Have you ever considered adopting one? Many pet owners around the world prefer buying a pet instead of adopting them. This is because buying could give them a lot of options, from breed to color. However, a lot of pet organizations request people to adopt instead. Why is that?
Actually, adoption is not just the correct thing to do; but it’s a prize. There are a lot of reasons why you should adopt an animal.
First of all, you will save a life. YES! You’ve read it right. Did you know? In the United States, around 2,700,000 cats and dogs are euthanized. This is because shelters take too many pets but few people think of adopting them. So, if more people adopted dogs instead of buying them, the number of euthanized animals can be dramatically reduced.
Secondly, you can help more than one animal. Right now, most shelters are taking millions of abused, lost, and stray animals. Whenever you adopt one, you are making room for others.
Another reason to adopt an animal is that it will save you money. Usually, whenever you adopt a pet, the adoption price already includes the charge of neuter/spay, vaccinations, and occasionally micro-chipping. This can save you a lot of money on the upfront cost of adding a new family member. Also, the adoption cost directly goes towards helping those shelters greater care for the animals they take. So it is basically a win-win situation!
