Will there be a wriggling, curious furball joining your family this December? Consider adopting a shelter pet into your loving home. You might be inspired to adopt a pet after reading a few reasons from the Humane Society.
1. Save a Pet’s Life
Welcome a shelter pet into your home, and rest easy knowing you saved an animal’s life. Encourage other would-be pet owners to adopt shelter pets as well. Together, you can reduce the number of pets who are euthanized each year.
2. It’s a Smart Choice
The adoption fee often includes spaying or neutering, vaccinations, and microchipping.
3. Easier Adjustment Period
Many shelter pets are already housetrained, which makes those first few adjustment weeks easier on you, your pet, and your home.
4. Self-Esteem Boost
Enjoy the emotional boost and positive feelings that come from caring for a furry companion.
5. Personality Match
With all the pets to choose from, you can find a dog or cat who will fit your personality and lifestyle. Whether you’re always active or more laid back, there’s a pet out there just for you!
