Animals deserve to have a loving home.
There are so many wild cats and dogs who roam around on the street because shelters are always full and they can’t house more pets. This means that these animals have to find scraps to live on and generally have a very tough life. So when people decide to buy pets rather than adopt or rescue one, they are unintentionally putting one more animal on the street. This is why we always ask to adopt and never shop.
The reason behind so many people choosing to buy a pet rather than adopt one is probably because of the fear of sickness. People think that the only pets that the shelter has are all sick or have some kind of problem. However, that is not true all the time since people abandon their pets for a lot of reasons including that they are moving and cannot take their animals with them. So it is always better to first do your research to see if the animal you want is available at the shelter. There is a high chance that you will find the perfect pet for yourself.

You would think that because of the pandemic, animal numbers in shelters would be the highest they have ever been. However, it is quite the opposite as people have slowly learned that adopting a pet is the best thing they can ever do and it is beautiful. According to statistics, adoption has increased over 70 per cent in the last year and shelters have much more space to help animals in need now. I suppose humanity knows that no companion is as loyal as a pet.
