With virtual pet adoption (VPA) your children will not only learn the responsibility of pet ownership, they will also enjoy a lot as they learn. But, please, keep in mind, that shelters often are scary and a dog is not himself there. To make sure that your expectations are met, it is important to weigh things and if you think there are more pros than the cons, then it will be worth it. There are advantages and disadvantages in adopting a pet.
The ARLGP is proud to partner with the PETCO Foundation and the Maine Mall PETCO for the Love Changes Everything national adoption event. Stores like PetCo and PetSmart sell pet supplies and dog supplies, but they also use Petfinder to bring animals and people together.
The circumstances can vary greatly but the bottom line is – rescued pets are wonderful animals that deserve love and a chance to live as much as any pet. Puppies: For many people, that’s the only way to go. They love the rolly-polly puppy stage and that’s good because there are often puppies available through rescue.
The world wide web has become a great help for charitable organizations such as shelters for unwanted animals as it helps to broaden their scope for finding suitable homes. Wags, Hope and Healing incorporated as a 501c3 nonprofit in January, have been rescuing, rehabilitating and finding loving homes for local rescue dogs since the Fall of 2011.
Any way you look at it the end result is that we have too many pets up for adoption or homeless in general. On June 5, 2013 Miami Valley Pit Crew came in and changed Penelope and her pups lives forever when they provided them rescue and an incredible foster family stepped up to offer them love and a safe haven.
