are you a pet rescuer/adopter or do you purchase animals at pet stores?

I used to think it was so much fun to buy a cute, clean little animal from a pet store, then I became involved with different humane societies and animal shelters. I realized that there are so many abandoned and unloved animals in the U.S. that it would take every person rescuing between 2-3 animals per person to get the numbers of stray/wild pets down. If every person would spay/neuter their pets, the population would be much more easily controlled. It is a sad thing to see an animal left on the side of the road to die or starve or suffer an unnecessary illness due to no fault of its own. So the next time you drive down the road and see an animal that needs help, please stop, it could mean all the difference to that poor animal.

All 4 of my dogs are resuces - Actually, I think they rescued me. :-)

My kitty & my lizard are also rescues.  So many sweet homeless fur kids need a home! ADOPT is the way to go!

I had always wanted a Husky so my first dog was purchased from a breeder. The next 3 have been strays and any of the future one WILL be strays!

I do not believe in buying from a store or breeder. There are enough out there that need homes without buying a special breed just because.

Over the years, we have gotten our cats from shelters or rescue groups.

I also use to think that puchasing puppies from breeders or from pet stores was an acceptable thing to do. However, I am 100% against purchasing puppies from pet stores, since they come from puppy mills. After getting into fostering dogs, I realized that there are so many amazing dogs out there that need homes, why would you deny them the opportunity of a loving home, just to have a pure bred pup? We adopted 9 months ago, and we have decided that all our dogs from here on out will be rescued!! I also agree that all pets should be spayed and neutered! It doesn't matter how responsible you think you are, when a male dog senses a female in heat, they will do anything to mate. I have friends whos dog chewed through a wall to get to female. Another person I know, there dog broke through a fence, broke its leg and still mated the dog. Recycle, Adopt a Dog!!!

So totally true!!  I rescued my little dog from a Kill Shelter 21 minutes before she was euthanized.  Simply because her owners didn't claim her in the allotted 10 days.   Love my baby!!!

Always rescue, Sam in the pic was shot in the face (thats why her tongue hangs out) the police took her to my vet and I happen to be there that day and agreed to take her home, my 2 great danes- the owner was a client where I worked and asked if I would take them or they would have to go to the shelter, so I did! My cats- 1 was a stray that should up starving, and never left, the other was from the humane society.
