One thing that we all need to reconsider is adopting animals rather than buying them. It’s a hard enough life for them as it is and on top of all that, they are abandoned by their owners as well. Almost 6.5 million animals were reported to have ended up at the shelters. Among which half were dogs and half were cats. Even though it is not better than what it was like in 2011, the situation should still keep getting better.
Fortunately, even though the pandemic has been hard on all of us, it has given us humans the ability to adopt more animals and/or spend more time with our current pets. Here is what Kitty Block who is the CEO of the Humane Society had to say;
“Folks who don’t have animals for one reason or another, because of their work schedule or their travel schedule, that’s all changed right now”

Where people are all joining hands in trying to give back to the society of the voiceless, New York is actually in shortage of dogs up for foster and adoption! Anna Lai who is the marketing director at Muddy Paws explained the situation with volunteers who want to foster
“For the moment, we definitely don’t have any dogs left to match… Which is a great problem to have,”
Indeed it is! However, when it comes to adopting a new pet, be sure not to be impulsive. More often than not, we decide on getting a new pet without knowing how hard it is to look after one. There are so many other things to consider; their food and the varying timings, their training, their vet visits and finances, plus we all love spoiling our little babies! They also require more time and more care, especially if they are very young!
The head of center operations, Rob Young, who works at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, had a lot of insights as to what you should definitely be aware of before, during and after adopting a pet cat or pet dog. In his own words he had said; ” getting a pet should never be an impulsive decision”
Something that we should all applaud about Battersea Dogs & Cats Home is that they follow a particular type of rehoming procedure known as “assessing the motivations and suitability of new owners.”
25. Dad: I don’t like animals.

32. So smol and so cute!
“Will additionally consider the impact of Government restrictions on new owners,” continued Rob about their rehoming staff. He wants to ensure that their new potential owners are “able to provide a setup that will still be suitable for a new pet once lockdown is over and they return to their usual lifestyle.”
Sometimes, it does get hard to look after dogs and cats. Even if we do not admit it, at some point in our lives we HAVE struggled! Here’s what Rob has to say about that; “Contacting a rescue centre is the most responsible decision if you can no longer care for a dog or cat,” Even if that seems scary, “put that fear aside for the sake of your pet’s welfare and bring them to a rescue.”
“You’ll never be judged or shamed for making the responsible decision,” assured Rob! Because for them, and for us as well, animals’ well-being should be of the highest priority.
