However, many furry little buddies don’t have the luxury of having a human come home to them and give them love and affection. Instead, many are stuck in shelters or unsafe spaces where their lives are miserable.

For this reason, it is important to consider adopting a pet instead of buying one. Here are some reasons you should consider adopting.

Many animals that are in shelters are in there for a limited amount of time. This is not because they get adopted quickly, but because there is not much space in the shelters, and the animals get put down before they get the chance to be adopted.

When you adopt an animal, you are saving their lives. They will get the chance to go to a loving home where they will be protected and cared for instead of living in an unsafe place or being put down in a shelter.

Many people would love to buy animals from breeders to be sure that they are pedigree animals who might participate in shows or are simply just seen as superior to shelter animals.

However, adopting an animal from a shelter is just as rewarding, and they might even be more loyal to you because you will have rescued them from an otherwise miserable life. It is also much less expensive to adopt an animal than buying one from a breeder.
