I sometimes feel like I live in a zoo. Pets from shelters also come with all of their shots and have been de-wormed, something that frequently can’t be said for pet shop animals. We have over 200 dogs up for adoption. Adopt-a-Pet is a nonprofit, no-kill animal shelter serving the Springfield area. But there are few essential points to remember before adopting a virtual pet from the virtual pet adoption center.
So, don’t think that shelters are full of misbehaving animals. There are lots of dogs that are without homes at animal shelters or humane societies. Today’s new economic reality” has been a disaster for animal rescues and shelters, not to mention most human welfare resources.
Adopt-a-Pet uses several ways to get in contact with people in order to accomplish their goals of getting every single pet a loving home and family. First is to decide prior to adopting if you want an actual animal like a cat or a dog or an imaginary character like a dragon, or unicorn or an animal that is specifically designed by the VPA center.
Along with domestic dogs and cats, many animal shelters have guinea pigs, bunny rabbits, gerbils, rats, hamsters and a number of other rodents that can offer a pet owner the kind of love and caring that they are looking for when they adopt a pet. Kitchens are an overall dangerous place for pets to be. Jumping pets have access to countertops and tables, while all animals can easily get to anything that’s within their reach, such as kitchen trash cans or food on the table.
Sign up for Adopt-a-Pet’s Adoption Alert. To that effect, a National Pet Adoption Weekend will be held September 9-10 to unite even more animals with a forever (fur-ever?) home. 1. As mentioned above, pets for adoption generally cost less than the ones available for sale in pet shops.
