    Two of my friends told me their parents were letting them get a pet this week and they wanted cats. I asked where they were going to adopt one and they said they would rather buy one from Petsmart instead. How can I persuade them to adopt, not buy?

    Hey @empoweredvegetarian22

    You could explain to your friends that for every cat that they purchase there are millions more suffering behind the scene to fuel the pet trade industry. By adopting an animal you not only give that animal a new chance at life you open a spot in the shelter for another unwanted animal to have the chance to get adopted! Who wouldn’t want an adorable adopted kitten?!
