Myth Busting about shelter and rescue animals! Did you know… 


1. They aren’t all mutts! (not that there’s anything wrong with that..) You can find almost any purebred dog through a rescue group!

2. They aren’t all older animals! (again…) Shelters and rescue groups get plenty of puppies and young dogs.

3. Many shelter animals are healthier than pet store animals! Just say NO to pet shops/puppy mills!

4. History a mystery? Not always! Info from previous owners as well as thorough observation provides a lot of good insight.

Cooper is a rescue mutt- come meet him! (please just don’t tell him he’s a dog).


Creating Cooper

Michelle Lander Feinberg is an attorney who lives in Massachusetts with her husband, their five children, a rescue dog, and a rescue mouse (yes, a mouse). As a life-long animal advocate, she is a strong supporter of animal welfare organizations and does her best to spread the word of the importance of adopting pets from animal shelters and rescue groups.
