Prospective Pet Owners: here’s something to think aboutFebruary 22, 2010
We volunteer at the city animal shelter where we live. There are lots of animals there waiting to find homes. Not all of them will. While tag surfing, we came across a very well-written post about this very issue. Here it is. Please read it, especially if you have not completely made up your mind about where to get an animal from. Shelters all across the country are waiting and hoping to find loving homes. If enough people stop showing interest in puppies bred in puppy mills, they’ll eventually go out of business.
Also: remember to spay and neuter your pets, ESPECIALLY if they are allowed outside for ANY period of time. They can and will have sex. It’s what they do.
