Adopt, Don't Shop!


Welcome!

The purpose of this website is to advocate for adopting a dog or cat from an animal shelter or rescue group rather than shopping for one at a pet store or breeder. As a lifelong animal lover and pet owner, animal adoption is a cause that is close to my heart, and I aim to spread awareness and provide information for prospective pet owners.

By exploring this website, you will be able to find out about:
  • The many benefits of adopting instead of shopping that apply to both you and our furry friends
  • The various problems with puppy mills (and by extension, pet stores)
  • Successful adoption stories
  • The many adoption resources that are available online
  • Why volunteering at animal shelters is important and how you can get involved

Whether you're interested in adopting a cat or dog or are just curious about why adopting is infinitely better than shopping, there is something on this website for all animal lovers. Enjoy!
