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).
Considering a Pet? Think Adoption, Save a Life!!
