Adopting an animal into your home means so much more than simply an opportunity to gain a companion.
According to the Humane Society of the United States, 2.7 million adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized yearly. Your new pet will essentially be winning the lottery when he gets to his new home and the gratitude will be palatable. How many times will you be able to say you are literally saving a life? And, in addition to bringing home your new best friend, you'll be opening up a space at the shelter for another deserving animal to fill.
Woof! dogs and cats are also current on their vaccines and either spayed or neutered. You'll be saving on these costs which can sometimes reach in to the hundreds of dollars.
