Clayton Perlman is a dog owner and encourages others to consider adopting rescue dogs. If you are thinking about becoming a pet owner, make sure you check out all the dogs available at your local shelter or rescue. There are many benefits of owning a rescue dog.
Save A Life
Many rescues and shelters are full of dogs, and when dogs have been there for too long and can’t find homes, they may have to be euthanized. When you choose to adopt a shelter dog, you not only save its life but make room in the shelter for another dog in need of being rescued.
Many shelter dogs have been trained and make better pets than puppies or dogs bought from a breeder. If you are looking for a more mature dog that does not need to be trained, a shelter pet may be a better fit for your family.
Shelter and rescue dogs are often much more affordable to adopt than dogs from a pet store. The money you do pay for the adoption goes back into the rescue to help feed and care for other dogs there.
Clayton Perlman considers his dog his best friend and spends a lot of time with it. If you want to add a pet to your family, make sure you consider adopting from a shelter or rescue. There are plenty of great dogs in shelters all over the world that just need families to love them.
