Each hour, every day, over 3,000 dogs and cats are born in the U.S. Most of these animals are unwanted and many end up in shelters. You can save a life by adopting a cat or dog from your local shelter.
There are puppies and kittens at the shelter as well as older animals. Whatever age you are looking for, you can find him or her at the shelter.
Purebreds can be found at the shelter. Experts say approximately 10-12% of animals in shelters are purebreds. So, if you have your heart set on a certain breed, try checking with your shelter. Most will keep you on a waiting list if they don't have what you're looking for.
Most shelters provide all necessary shots and spaying or neutering before the animal goes home with you. Spaying/neutering helps to end the tremendous pet overpopulation problem, is healthier for your animal and saves you time and money.
And don't forget about the unconditional love! Your new pet will love you regardless of all other outside factors. Where else can you find that kind of devotion?
