When searching for a new pet, you should ask yourself why should I shop for a pet when I can adopt?
There are hundreds of sweet, loving, and friendly companions who are stuck in shelters all around the United States. They are eager to please and just hoping to find a good, loving home.
Within 50 miles of Springifled, IL there are at least 865 animals available for adoption today, according to petfinder.com. Many of these animals don’t even understand what home is and now they face uncertainty, massive amounts of stress, and for the unlucky few, even death.
Here is an excellent resource for more information on Pet Adoption.
So what’s stopping you from saving a life today? Don’t shop, adopt!
