​​Adopting Your Next Pet Not Only Means You’ll Be Saving A Life You’ll Also Be Breaking The Puppy Mill’s Ability To Make Money.

Animal Shelters and Rescues Fast Facts

  • 25 percent of pets in shelters are purebreds. Breed-specific rescue groups always have purebred dogs and puppies looking for new homes.
  • Most pets end up homeless through no fault of their own—”moving” and “landlord issues” are the top reasons people give for relinquishing their pets, meaning shelters and rescue groups are full of wonderful, family-ready pets.
  • Pets adopted from shelters and rescue groups typically cost less than pets purchased or even acquired for free—once you add in the cost of vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, microchip, dewormer and other “extras” included in your adoption fee, you’ll probably be surprised what a bargain an adopted pet really is!
  • Shelters and rescue groups can provide advice on making your relationship with your pet the best it can be for the rest of their life, so you’ll never have to go it alone.

Shelters do charge a small adoption fee amount but think of it more as a donation rather than a fee. That donation goes to pay for the shelter bills, feeding and caring for the animals and also advertisements to find homes for all the other animals that are still there.  So your money isn't lining the pockets of someone, they are giving each animal another day to find their BFF Wildlife Planet Pet Adoption
