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

Posted on 10/16/10 at 11:23 PM By Kimberly Runkel | 37 Replies
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.

Adopt your pets! Puppy mills are a sad reality. Research is very important is you intend to "buy" an animal.

I have two cats- one is a rescue and the other I adopted from a family whose cat had kittens.  I love them both and they have distinctive personalities.  The rescue one would have been run over by a truck, if the driver didn't see him first.  I just happened to be looking for another cat to keep mine company and there he was- little and hiding next to a one ton dually trucks tires, in the middle of no where.  I took him with me immediately and now all of us are a family.

All of my animals have either come from dogs i already had, from people who couldn't have them or take care of them anymore, and a few from the humane society or PetsMart (who partners with the animal shelters). I have only paid for 1 dog from a breeder and it was mu pure bred rottweiler :) But we have had a lot of pitbulls that people wanted because they were cute and then didn't want them once they got big and realized how much they eat lol
