Have you been considering bringing a new pet into your life? Have you ever thought of rescuing a pet?
In the United States, millions of animals are euthanized every year for no reason other than they can’t find a home that will love and care for them. Rescues exist for purebreds and mixed breeds alike, as well as farm animals and exotics!
Older pets are available for someone who may not be interested in the training and energy
required of a youngster. But if you prefer a baby, they can be found in rescues too! The fees required for adoption from rescues are generally much less expensive than purchasing from a breeder.
Also, the money spent on an adoption fee goes right back into caring for animals in need. If you are not willing to take the leap into pet ownership just yet, consider becoming a foster home! Check out resources like www.buddydoghs.com, www.thecatconnection.org, and www.arlboston.org to see available animals in need of homes.
