    I can not convince my parents and sister that getting a rescue is better. They think that since we are getting a fluffy puppy rescue, which is high in demand, it doesn’t matter if we just go to a breeder. I also can’t convince them that breeding is bad. What do I say?

    Hey @Rainstar,

    Thanks for wanting to help animals! Millions of animals are euthanized in shelters every year because there aren’t enough good homes for them to go to. It makes absolutely no sense to continue bringing new animals into the world when there are millions of healthy, friendly animals in shelters that are desperate for good homes and being put down. Animals adopted from shelters are, in general, healthier from lack of inbreeding, and in my opinion sweeter. It’s like they know you gave them a second chance! Most shelters have a puppy wing, too, if you’re interested in rescuing a puppy. :)

    Breeders and puppy mills have some of the worst conditions for animals. Please click here to learn more on why it’s crucial we stop supporting them:

    I hope you can share this info with your family to let them know why adopting versus buying is so important. If they care about animals they will have to agree.Thanks!
