Few can resist having ‘man’s best friend’ as a pet! If you’re one of the many people who think that canine companions make the perfect pet, then why not consider adopting a dog from one of SPCA’s shelters?
Why dog adoptions, and not buying from a pet supplier?
SPCA, as the city’s largest non-profit animal shelter organization, have a whole host of dogs available to adopt today. But what exactly is the advantage of adoption, rather than buying from a pet shop or professional breeder?
- You’re making a difference. Many of our dogs haven’t had the greatest start in life and are actively seeking kind owners to transform their lives for the better.
- Friendly, fun pets: Shelter dogs often make great pets and will bring warmth and fun into your home.
- No unwanted pups: Most of our dogs are neutered or spayed prior to adoption, saving you the cost of paying for surgery.
- Healthy dogs: All our dogs have been given thorough physical examinations and vaccinations.
Dog Adoption: Things to Think About
Initially, you need to assess your home and lifestyle and ensure that you are ready for the responsibility of owning a dog. They not only require a good home, but plenty of exercise and fresh air; not to mention attention! Check that you’ve got the time to dedicate to your new four legged friend, to ensure you both get the best from the experience.
