In the vast majority of cases, humans are pet lovers. There are times when a pet needs our help though, due to thing like neglect, and in some cases owners can no longer look after them. This is when animal charities come in to play. They take unwanted and abused pets, and look after them. Once they are ready to be rehomed, they are put up for adoption.
Adopting an animal from a charity is something you can do today. Not only will that make you feel good about what you are doing, but you will also be helping the charity by taking an animal of there hands. This then frees up resources so that they can take in another animal.
When adopting from a charity, they always ask for a ‘donation’. This is to cover the costs of housing and feeding the animal, but it is always a good idea to offer them more than they ask for. An additional $10 would be very much appreciated by a charity.
So, next time you want an animal, have a look at the local charities before purchasing from a store.
