I Beg of You to Please Adopt Shelter Pets

    I Would

    I will adopt a shelter pet when I have my own home. Right now, my family members are not really pet lovers. Some have asthma, while others just don't like them. I've always dreamed of having my own house with a big outside space where adopted pets can roam around.

    They Make The Best Pets

    I have a cat who I adopted from the pound, and she just loves me absolutely. I'm pretty sure that like most pound rescuees, she's aware from where I've taken her and really appreciates me for giving her a much better life. There is no question who she belongs to.But then, I've...

    I am the owner of these 2 lovely cats.

    But I'm finding myself not being able to take care of them since my baby was born 6 months ago. My baby is a high needs baby, needs my attention all day and takes 30 minute naps, so little time for me. I dont have the time for my 2 cats and a dog and cook dinner and clean, etc...

    Please don't make me beg,

    but it does help save a life, and sometimes, in return they save your life too. :)

    Dont Buy

    I say this too.  Adopt from shelters stop supporting people breeding for money until we get the pet population in control. I'd love a Siamese but haven't got one because there are far more cats in need than one breed specifically for me.

    Those Eyes

    That sad hopeful look that says, "Please, pick me. "  It tears me apart.  I want to take all of them home with me, but know I can't.

    I Support No Kill Shelters

      There aren't enough no kill shelters.  It's  very expensive . People believe they are dropping a dog or cat off to get a home , in a neighborhood shelter. Be careful..please ask. Most aren't no kill.    Ask and realize the animal has just...

    They Need Love More

    I will gladly sacrifice my silly desire to own a purebred in order to save a mutt from euthanization. If you MUST own a purebred, there are lots of organizations that rescue certain pure breeds- that is far more noble that funding puppy mills or corrupt breeders.

    I'll Take Them All!

    My story's the same as anschel's really. The few times I've been to a rescue place, like the RSPCA (actually I think I've only been to RSPCA rehoming centres) I always get such an urge to take every single one of those poor creatures home with me. Every last one. And I would if...

    My Brother'S Dogs

    My brother's Border Collie had passed away and he was depressed. I told him to check out the Anti-Cruelty downtown and "get a baby that needs you". I went with him, because I was going to pay the adoption fee as a birthday present for him. We came home with a beautiful 3 month...

    Six Is Enough!

    Currently we have six dogs in the house; all rescued. They are all house broken and behave very well, but the average weight is over 50 pounds and they are all needy.I agree, I am very glad we have rescued pets, but know when to say when. It is hard to return all the love they...

    The Least We Can Do For Unconditional Love!

    I have never entertained the notion of purchasing a pet from a breeder or pet store.  Here in the deep south, I have seen the results of puppy mills and the general disregard for animals. It saddens me to think that people can be so callused and devoid of any innate humanity...

    If you are thinking about getting an animal PLEASE get one from a shelter. There are thousands of animals dying every day dying because there is no room for them in shelters. These animals are otherwise healthy (for the most part) but because of over crowding they are euthanized...
