When adopting you are guaranteed a spayed/neutered pet, up to date shots, and already embed microchip. “When you adopt a pet you save two lives; the life of the animal you just adopted, and that of the one that’s going to fill its spot in the shelter.”
The population of homeless cats and dogs is growing beyond measure, which results in a high number of animals being “put down”. This is an improvident, expensive, and ineffective solution. As you’ve seen, there are ways to prevent the high number of homeless animals and euthanasia.
