Why Adopt? Pet Adoption = Instant Friend for Life!

Jan 1, 11 • Rescue Stories3 CommentsRead More »

Ask anybody who has adopted a rescue pet, and they’ll swear their bond with their rescued pal is as deep as they come. When you open your heart and your home to a pet who needs help, they really do show their appreciation for the rest of their life! Dogs or cats who have been uprooted from their homes, or have had difficult beginnings are likely to bond completely and deeply with their new human caretakers, whom they regard as heroes. Pups and kitties who find themselves in the shelter or at a rescue because of a death or other tragedy in their former human family usually go through a mourning period. Once they are adopted, however, they usually want nothing more than to please their new hero—YOU! No matter what circumstances brought them to the rescue, most cats and dogs for adoption are exceptionally affectionate and attentive, and make extremely loyal companions.

    I volunteer at an animal shelter, and I’ll tell you, those animals are as loving as they come. They all come from different situations (stray, found in a box, puppy mill, abuse, surrender, etc) Some are timid, even terrified, coming into the shelter. Some are sick or injured. But, eventually they will warm up to you, realizing that you’re there to help, and it is SUCH an amazing feeling to know that another one of these amazing animals finds a caring forever home 🙂 I don’t even get to do much one-on-one with the animals (I generally do dishes, laundry, other cleaning duties…) but I still feel like it’s totally worth it and it’s honestly the best feeling hearing that another animal’s found a home 🙂 I encourage EVERYONE to try and adopt their pets from shelters, you’ll be saving a life!

    I have a rescue dog…but perhaps he rescued me. I now take long walks in the fresh air with him…I have someone to come home to every day who is always happy to see him and he makes me laugh and smile…
