10 Great Reasons to
Adopt a Shelter Dog
- Adopting a dog from a kill shelter quite
literally saves a life. Adopting from a
no-kill shelter frees up space for another
deserving dog waiting for a forever home, or
for an older or special needs pet who may not
find a new family before the end of his
- Every dog not purchased from a pet store
or backyard breeder is a vote against
irresponsible breeding for profit. When the
demand for puppy mill and other inhumanely
bred dogs dries up, mill operators and other
reckless puppy suppliers will be forced to
find other "hobbies."
- There are many dogs to choose from at
most shelters. They come in both genders, and
every age, shape, size, coat color, and breed
mix. If you're looking for a purebred dog,
make sure to check both your local shelters
and breed rescue organizations.
- If you can't find the pet you're looking
for locally, consider widening your search.
This is easy to do with online services like
Petfinder. If you locate an adoptable dog
that might be a good match in a shelter
outside your area, contact the shelter to see
if they do non-local adoptions and what
transport arrangements are available.
- Most shelters charge a nominal fee to
adopt a pet - a fee that is quite a bit less
than you'll pay to a breeder or pet store.
That will leave you with some extra cash for
essential supplies and a few goodies for your
new canine pal. And don't forget to set a
little money aside for that all-important
first visit to your pet's new
- If you adopt an adult dog, what you see
is what you get when it comes to your dog's
size, coat color, and basic temperament. And
she might already be house trained and know
basic obedience commands like sit, stay, and
- Many shelters and rescue groups do
assessments on each animal they take in to
determine things like temperament, whether
the pet is good with other pets and children,
whether she's house trained, obedience
trained, etc. Another benefit for adoptive
families is that many of these organizations
also have resources available to train pets
and help owners deal with a new dog's
behavioral or emotional issues.
- If you have kids, and especially if the
new dog will belong to a child, adopting a
shelter animal can open a young person's eyes
to the plight of homeless pets. It can also
help him learn compassion and responsibility,
as well as how wonderful it feels to provide
a forever home to a dog that might otherwise
live life in a cage, or be euthanized.
- An older adoptive pet can make a
wonderful companion for an older person. Many
middle-aged and senior dogs require less
physical exertion and attention than younger
- An adopted dog can enrich your life in
ways big and small. The unconditional love
and acceptance of a dog can lift depression,
ease loneliness, lower blood pressure, and
give you a reason to get up in the morning. A
dog that loves to walk or run outdoors can be
just the incentive you need to start
As many adoptive pet parents can attest, a
rescue dog seems to understand you have saved
his life. Often, the bond that forms between
shelter dogs and their new owners is
exceptionally close and enduring.
There is no greater kindness you can offer a
frightened, confused shelter pet than a place in
your heart and home.

Emergencies seldom give
warning, but we can be ready for them. Most people have
first aid kits on hand for themselves and family members.
But what about your animals? Pet care experts recommend
having a pet first aid kit that's right where you need it if
an animal emergency occurs.
You can buy kits that are
pre-assembled or assemble your own. Keep them in different
locations so that you are prepared at all times, in all
places. It's wise to keep one kit at home, one in the car,
and wherever else your pet spends time -- the office, a
relative's or friend's home, a vacation retreat, etc. If
customizing your own, use a container that is sturdy,
waterproof and easy to spot when you need to locate it in a
