Adopt or buy?

August 1, 2014


This is a great question. Do you adopt a dog or do you buy a dog?


What is the answer??????


Well the answer depends on the situation you are in, what you want the dog for and why you have picked that dog/breed. It is a hard decision but here are a couple of facts to help make it easier for you.


Adopting a dog:

  • There are heaps of dogs out there that need a home already. A number of reasons mean they don’t have one yet.
  • Helping a non-for profit organization is a tax deduction in many cases, so this means you may get some extra back on your tax.
  • It is a great feeling knowing you saved a life.
  • There are so many different breeds and personalities at a shelter that you may just find the perfect one for you.
  • Not everyone wants to go through that puppy stage and this is a good place to find dogs that are already out of that time in there life.
  • There are also much older dogs if that’s what you are after.
