Why should you adopt a shelter pet?

If you have room in your home and in your heart for a new dog or cat, pet adoption makes sense for lots of reasons. Here are just a few of them:

  • You'll save a life - Even if you adopt from an organization that has a no-kill policy, you help rescue another animal by making space available in our program.

  • You'll save money - Adopting from a rescue typically costs less than buying an animal from a pet shop or a breeder.

  • You'll help make a difference - By adopting rather than buying a new companion animal, you will reduce the demand that drives the commercial breeding of puppies and kittens. Each year, millions of healthy and well-behaved animals are destroyed in shelters simply because there are not enough homes for all of them.

 

If you aren’t in a position to make a permanent addition to your family, you can consider fostering an animal instead. Foster pets benefit greatly from being in a home environment. The pet is able to await its forever home in a positive environment while being socialized and learning how to act as a member of a family.

 

So, there are plenty of good reasons to adopt or foster a Hope for Pets animal, but probably the best reason to adopt or foster a dog or cat is that you just might meet your new best friend. You can view our adoptable animals below. To start the adoption or foster process, please complete an ADOPTION APPLICATION  or FOSTER APPLICATION. If you don't see what you're looking for, please CONTACT US and we will help you find the right animal for you!
