Adoptable Animals at Pets In Need

Adopting a shelter animal is a win-win-win situation:

  • Your wallet wins. Buying from a breeder can cost ten times more than adopting from a shelter. And the fee for a shelter animal includes vaccinations, micro-chipping, and spay/neuter surgery. Check out Pets In Need adoption fees  .
  • Shelter animals win. Not only are you saving a life and giving your new pet a loving forever home, you’re lowering the demand for pets from puppy mills and breeders. This, in turn, diminishes the profitability and production of breeder and puppy mill operations, opening up more loving homes for shelter animals.
  • You win. You get exactly what you want: a healthy pet that’s perfect for you. Your pet is up-to-date on all of its shots, and it has been socialized by caring volunteers and staff so that its true personality shines. And if you’re not sure what kind of pet would be best for your family, the shelter staff will help you find the perfect pet that matches your lifestyle.

If you’re looking for a furry friend to brighten up your life, adopting a shelter animal is the way to go. In return for combating overpopulation and giving a shelter animal a loving forever home, you are rewarded with a healthy, happy, and loving new friend.
