(Cat Adoption - Petfinder)
(Finding the Right Animal)
When you buy from a breeder, you are denying a homeless animal a home.
According to ASPCA
Approximately, 7.6 million animals enter shelters every year
Approximately, 2.7 million animals are euthanized.
Only 2.7 are adopted
About 649,000 animals that come in as strays go back to their owners
Supply animals to pet stores and breeders
Why are they bad?
Unfit living conditions
Breed for quantity, not quality
From a Breeder/Store From a Shelter
Get the exact breed you want
25% of animals in shelters are purebreeds
Pure breeds are more prone to health problems
Unique, one-of-a-kind, mixed breed
More likely to live longer and less health problems
Less vet bills
Expensive vet bills
When you buy from a breeder, you're on your own
When you adopt, especially from a rescue center, they are more helpful by:
Giving the background of your dog
Help you through the familiarization period
Meet Your Match is a personality test to help adopters find a compatible match
Designed for shelters to make successful and permanent adoptions
Purple: more calm
Green: in between
Orange: more active
Many dogs in shelters are from:
a family moving to a new home
lack of time
so most dogs are already trained
Saving a life
Buying from a breeder: $500-$1,000
Adopting from a shelter: $50-$200
When you adopt, you can pick what age animal you want.
When you buy from a breeder, all of their animals are the same age.
