Allie here again. I want to talk to you about something really serious. Do you know what that is? Pet Adoption. I am here to tell you that the saying “Adopt Don’t Shop” is so true in our family. I was adopted from someone my daddy worked with. My three sisters may they rest in peace were all adopted.
We were lucky that our parents found us. But that is not always the case, there are many furbabies out there looking for homes and not able to find them because they don’t have connections. Luckily there are resources out there that can help you find them and they find their forever home. How you ask, well for instance if a furparent was looking for some Chihuahuas to adopt, they can just go to Get Your Pet and type in their location and the type of dog they want and Viola!! Matches made in Heaven.
Now let me tell you about the furbabies that found us.
First, there was Winnie. Winnie was found abused and abandoned and just skin and bones. But my daddy decided that she was such a sweetie that she would find her forever home with my family. She was the first in the line of adopted furbabies.
Next came Tutu or W2 she was one of Winnie’s children. She was probably the happiest and the sweetest of all dogs that my family has had.
And then I came along. I can be bipolar at times but still, I am pretty lovable just ask all of my sisters’ boyfriends. Even though I am Shih Tzu, I still was adopted because I was the runt and nobody wanted me.
Just last year, Koda came to our family through the farm. Although she wasn’t with us long she sure wormed her way into our hearts.
So I can honestly say that adopting and not shopping worked great with my family. So please give one of 7.5 million animals that are put in shelters every year a chance. Because out of the 7.5 million of those put in shelters, 2.6 million are put to sleep. Seriously, that just makes my little fur heart so sad. So please if you are considering a furbaby, adopt from your local shelter.
