Great Reasons to Adopt a Shelter Dog

October is Adopt A Shelter Dog Month! This is a truly wonderful cause, and something we are more than happy to help spread awareness about. If you’re thinking about bringing a new canine buddy into your household, please consider adopting Fido from a local shelter. In this article, a local Newmarket, ON vet lists some great benefits of getting your new pooch from a shelter.

Save A Life

By adopting Fido from a shelter, you’re giving him a much-deserved second chance at happiness, and a new lease on life. This is a wonderful way to make a positive difference in the world! And while no one person can help every homeless pet, you can certainly change one lucky dog’s life forever.

Meet Your Match

Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you want a small lapdog, a big active pup, a playful pooch, or a calm older pet, you’ll likely find your perfect match in a local shelter. You’ll also be able to spend some quiet time with Fido before making a final decision. This helps ensure that you’re picking the dog that is right for you.

Save Money

Gong to a shelter is often much cheaper than getting a pet from a local breeder or pet store. Most shelter pets are spayed or neutered, and up to date on their vaccines and parasite control. This alone can save you quite a bit of money!

Promote Animal Welfare

Going to a shelter is one of the best things you can do to promote good animal welfare. Shelters take in homeless pets, and give them food, shelter, and basic medical care, allowing them a second chance at happiness. By supporting a local shelter, you’re also helping other animals in need. The money you spend on Fido’s adoption fees will help the shelter keep caring for their furry charges. Now that’s something you can really feel great about!

Make A Friend

Our canine pals are both smart and intuitive. Many dogs understand that they’ve been rescued, and repay their heroes with absolute devotion, unwavering love, and, of course, unlimited puppy kisses and tail wags. These are all truly special gifts!
