Why Adopt?

Adopting saves lives. Each year, it's estimated that more than one million adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized in the United States, simply because too many pets come into shelters and too few people consider adoption when looking for a pet.

Before you Adopt...

Prepare for the responsibilities
Don’t underestimated the responsibilities of owning a pet. Make sure you’re prepared for the extra walks, potty training, play time, vet bills, etc.
Talk to your family or co-owner
It’s important to discuss the type of pet you are looking for. Discuss the minimum criterias or must have personality traits you’re both looking for.
Check for allergies
Comfirm that you and those you live with do not suffer from pet allergies. You’ll want to be able to co-inhabit and touch your pet without allergies.
Check for compatibility
Are you looking for a pet to watch movies with or to go hiking with? Make sure the personality and energy level of the pet matches your lifestyle.
Need more time to decide?
Become a foster to get a taste of pet parenthood.
