There are so many animals that need homes and someone to love them like they deserve to be. Have you ever looked into a face of an animal in a cage at a shelter and NOT feel sad for them? If you haven't then honestly you have no souls. There are various and numerous reasons why you should adopt rather than shop. There are sooooo many animals that need your love without you forking out money and contributing to these big chained pet stores. Take a look at your local animal shelter or humane society and you will see there are a lot of adoptable dogs and animals. I know that some people do not want a full grown adult or only want the young pets; which there is nothing wrong with that. But can you tell me that a 5 year old cat is less of a "good cat" just because he was thrown out by it's owners? No, you cannot. The next time you are looking to get a cat or dog, take a look at your animal shleters first, or even if you know someone who cannot take care of their pets and give those fur babies a loving home, they all deserve one. Just like you, they have hearts too.
There are always adopting events going on also at stores such as Petco and Pet Smart so check those out also.
Contact your local shelter and see what they have now!
For my local Metro Detroit/Macomb County Residents, check out a Macomb Animal Shelter or Humane Society of Macomb
With fur love,
