FAQ: Why should I adopt rather than shop? Posted on Wednesday, 20 June 2018
When you adopt a pet, you are saving a life. You become part of the solution and not part of the problem.
When you buy a pet, you not only deny a homeless pet a home, you are supporting an industry that thrives on shortchanging the welfare of animals. Puppy and kitten mills (which sell to pet stores) are in business to make a profit, so they churn out puppies and kittens as fast as they can. These animals are often in ill health and have problems like poor socialization skills due to lack of human companionship and genetic defects due to inbreeding.
You get as much love (if not more) from an adopted pet. You only have to read our adoption stories to see how lovely and loving our adopted furbabies are.
An adopted pet is every bit as friendly , intelligent and loyal as a purchased pet, even if you get an adult or older animal.
