When you decide to get a dog, you may think that buying it from a pet shop is your best option. We all might have seen cute little puppies at the pet shop, but there is an 80% possibility that they came from puppy mills. These are breeding facilities that force caged, neglected and often sick dogs to produce puppy after puppy to be sold for profit. Well, that’s how pet shops work.
On the other hand, many beautiful and healthy dogs end up in animal shelters because of just not having a home or the unstable financial condition or abandonment by the owner. By taking one small step you can help them, and that is by deciding to adopt them instead of purchasing them from a pet shop.
Animal shelters are full of amazing pets looking for their forever home and worthy people whom they can call their family. The dogs at the shelter are happier and healthier than those in pet shops. Just because a dog isn’t a purebred doesn’t mean that they are not worth owning. Why buy from a pet shop or a breeder to own a dog only for its breed, just because it’s known for specific characteristics? Or maybe you want to show it off to your friends? Dogs are not made for showing off or for comparing with others!
A mix breed is unique; they’re one of a kind. Why should you judge a dog by its breed instead of going to a shelter and having a whole range of dogs to choose from? Small to big, puppies to adults, you can find the companion that you’ve always wanted. When you adopt your bestie, not only are you saving a life, but you are also standing up against puppy mills, which is a wonderful thing.
Man’s best friend deserves better… they deserve good care, safety and love from their family. With your help we can save them all and give them the wonderful life that they deserve.
