Benefits of Adopting A Shelter Pet
You’ll save two lives – the one you adopt and the one you make room for.
Although intake is down thanks to the Fix.Adopt.Save. Initiative, thousands of pets still come into alliance member shelters each
month. There is no shortage of wonderful pets who deserve a second chance. Please consider a shelter pet.
You’ll save money – the value you get when adopting a pet is profound.
Shelter pets have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, provided an examination for their health and behavior; adoption fees often include a free follow-up vet exam and/or microchip.
You’ll have a large selection to choose from – shelters house a variety of pets from small, medium and large, to young and mature, to ‘mutts’ and purebreds; canines and felines. You will also find pets who will fit well into a variety of living situations.
You’ll be supporting your community and its pets as opposed to purchasing pets from pet stores, breeders or online.
