Animal Adoption Saves Lives

“I think the importance of adoption rests on the merit of what that is alone. I am adopted, and I am so grateful for my story … that’s what makes me who I am.”—Jordan Fisher

Adopting an animal in need is one of the most compassionate things that you can do. By welcoming a rescued animal companion into your home, you’re improving the life of one of the more than 6 million cats and dogs and countless other animals who enter U.S. animal shelters each year—and you’re preventing that animal from becoming one of the 3 to 4 million cats and dogs who are euthanized in shelters annually.

Plus, adopting an animal companion usually means loads of cuddles, playtime, and fun. But it also comes with responsibility, so make sure that you’re fully prepared to take care of your new family member for life. Here are a few things to bear in mind before you visit your local animal shelter:

  • Animal companions need a lot of looking after—be sure to bathe, walk, and feed them as often as they need it.
  • They require plenty of attention, so don’t forget to pack in the extra cuddles and schedule lots of fun playtime!
  • You’ll need to check in with the vet regularly to make sure that your pal’s health is in tip-top shape.

“Making the decision to add to my life and enrich my life by getting a dog, it makes it that much greater that I was able to take a dog out of that situation and give them an opportunity to do what they do best.”—Jordan Fisher

Adopting an Animal Will Change Your Life—for the Better

Like Jordan, you can have a fabulous friendship with your animal companion. If you’re able to put in the long-term love and care, the reward can be huge—a buddy who will stick with you through thick and thin.

“As a species … if we can be half as good as dogs, I think the world would be a much better place.”—Jordan Fisher

We couldn’t agree more. ❤️ If you’re looking to welcome an animal companion into your family, always adopt—never buy!
