If you read our posts often then you know that we are staunch supporters of adopting dogs from shelters rather then buying them. However, the latest study shows that we need to be more vocal! We all need to speak out and raise awareness of the problems dog adoption solves, and the problems that dog buying makes!
In 2011, for example, 75% of all households that acquired a dog chose not to adopt. The number one reason of course, is the negative perception they have of shelter dogs. But shelter dogs are the most wonderful creatures you can imagine! If you still think that buying is better than adopting maybe this video about Spunky will change your mind.
