Adoption is the best option for bringing home a new pet this holiday.
Very few things in life can compare to the unconditional love and companionship given by our animal friends, especially when those friends have been given a second chance through adoption. iAdopt for the Holidays is a national campaign focused on positive, real-life pet adoption stories as a means to encourage others to adopt and experience a similar happy ending.
Animals adopted this holiday season
There are so many reasons to choose adoption when bringing a new pet into your family. Here are just a few:
- You’ll be changing a life
- You’ll be taking home a healthy pet
- You’ll be saving money
- You’ll feel good about making a compassionate choice
- You won’t be supporting irresponsible pet breeders
- You’ll be giving a deserving pet a second chance
If you’re considering adopting an animal, or have already adopted a pet, browse these adoption tip sheets for information about everything from choosing the right companion to teaching your pet (in a positive way!) the behaviours you’d like to see more – or less often. Careful consideration before adopting, including research and planning, plus plenty of love, patience and a sense of humor, will foster a strong and loving relationship that will make you friends for life!
