14 (Adorable) Arguments for Adoption

Written by PETA | October 4, 2012

Fun fact: October is National Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month. And PETA—always an advocate for adoption—knows just how you can celebrate: Adopt a dog from a shelter already!

Buying a dog from a pet store or breeder means one fewer home for a dog in a shelter—adding to the millions of dogs and cats who must be euthanized each year for lack of good homes. So PETA never misses a chance to tell everyone within earshot how adopting dogs from shelters lowers euthanasia rates while also saving animals from fighting to survive on the streets. That’s a win-win situation, right there. Plus, shelter dogs are just so darn lovable, so win-win-win!

But don’t take our word for it—we’ve called in the experts to make the case. Since every month should honor shelter dogs, here are 14 indisputable reasons why you should always adopt, never buy:

    Adopt,Adopt,Adopt thats what i say i dont have a dog but have rescued cats and i recently rescued a kitten from a felony coleny whom was very poorly it was touch and go whether she would pull though but now a thriving young lady and all my other cats accepted her into our home, rescued animals are just amazing and the love you get from them is something special. Here in the UK theres a programme at the mo called Paul O Grady For The Love Of Dogs where he spends 9 weeks at The Battersea dogs home here in London wonderful programme and many people who have watched going to adopt.
