Why is it better to adopt a pet?

1. By adopting an animal, you are saving a life.

2. Thousands of healthy animals are being euthanised every day in shelters around South Africa, so why breed or buy a pet when there are so many in need?

3. By adopting, you give the animal the second chance they deserve.

4. One female cat and her offspring can produce 420 000 cats in seven years, and one female dog and her offspring can produce 67 000 dogs in six years (source: HSUS). This means there are too many animals with no homes, that need your help.

5. Mixed breeds offer several advantages. They have more character then you could imagine, and they know you have saved their life, so they will be forever grateful.

6. When you adopt a mixed breed, you benefit from the combined traits of two or more breeds. You also get a pet that’s likely to be free of genetic defects common to certain purebred animals.
