Shelters…the way to go

Posted on July 13, 2009. Filed under: 3. Trainer On Call | Tags: , |


This week I wanted to post my tip of the week blog about something that I think we all know is important, but should never be forgotten.

There are thousands of pets waiting to be adopted in shelters.  It doesn’t matter what city you live in, there is a pet in need.  Please remember when considering getting a pet that there is one out there who needs you.

Shelters are wonderful because they do give many pets a second chance to find a good home.  They have a variety of pets to be adopted as can be seen weekly on  You can find anything from rats, rabbits, horses, cats dogs, turtles and the list goes on.

Be sure when you are considering getting a pet that you take into account the home you have for it.  For instance probably best not to get a Great Dane for an apartment that is only a studio unless you have the ability to go for many walks a day.  If you are getting a first pet for a child, consider getting a hamster or rabbit first, before graduating up to a cat or dog.

But most of all, first look at your local shelter.  Don’t discount the pets that may be a little older, they still have lots of love to give to.
