Cutest Reasons Ever to Adopt

Written by Michelle Kretzer | July 29, 2011

This coming Sunday, July 31, has been dubbed “Mutts Day,” and I can say from personal experience that nothing beats an adorable one-of-a-kind mutt. When you adopt a homeless mutt from a shelter, you not only gain a best buddy, you also save a life. But don’t just take it from me—take it from these famous shelter-dog fans:

Of course, mutts aren’t the only ones who are abandoned at shelters—it’s estimated that a quarter of shelter dogs are purebreds who were dropped off after being purchased from a pet shop, puppy mill, or breeder. No matter what kind of dog you’re looking for, you can find one at a shelter.

Maybe you can’t buy love, but you can certainly adopt it.

    The only way these greety breeders will stop breeding for their own benefit is not to buy from them. Shop at your local SPCA or private shelters for your next baby to share your home, I did !!!
