Adopting Pets from Shelters

Don’t let perceptions keep you from adopting at a shelter. These dogs really need your help. With the number that come in, the shelter really needs your help, too. The more to care for, the harder it is to keep really sanitary conditions. As far as not knowing what you are getting yourself into, if you get a pure breed puppy from a puppy store, you STILL do not know what you are getting yourself into. While a breed may have certain characteristics, previous treatment and the pet’s own personality go a long way. Please OPT TO ADOPT.
