After making the decision to add a dog to your family, there are several choices to make from there. From choosing the dog breed, dog age, or whether or not to adopt, these decisions will make a big impact on your daily life with your new pet.
When it comes to choosing between dog shopping or adoption, we believe the benefits of dog adoption will mutually benefit both your family and the adopted dog. These benefits will outweigh a decision to buy a fancy designer breed, although no judgement if you can’t resist a goldendoodle or a Yorkipoo!
Below are the 5 main benefits of giving a dog a forever home and forever a place in your heart.
Top Dog Adoption Benefits
Save a Dog’s Life
When adopting a dog, you’re giving them a second chance in life. Without the opportunity to get adopted into a loving family, these dogs would be stuck in a shelter waiting to be euthanized.
Reject Puppy Mills
Puppy mills have become more common, and people would be surprised at the number of dogs waiting for their forever homes in puppy mills. Sadly, they all won’t find their forever homes and puppy mills are known for their horrible conditions. If enough dog parents adopt from their local shelter, this will decrease the demand for puppy mills.
Skip the Waitlist
When adopting straight from your local shelter, you’re skipping the long waitlist attached to many dog breeders. You can bring your dog home right away when adopting, which is an exciting perk for families eager to add their new addition to their home.
More Mature Dogs
If the puppy stage doesn’t interest you, adopting a dog means you can choose the age. More mature dogs are already trained, already have their shots and are ready to be adopted into a family who wants to show them unconditional love.
Get Unconditional Love
Not only will your family benefit from loving your new dog, you will get that unconditional love in return! There’s nothing like the unconditional love from a dog that has been so patiently waiting to be adopted to their forever home. An added benefit is staff at the shelter can advise on the personality traits of your adopted dog, letting you know ahead of time how they will fit into your family’s lifestyle and dynamics.
Spoil Your Shelter Dog with a Luxury Dog Bed
