Pets are good for your health. If you adopt a dog, it can help lessen feelings of loneliness. Having a companion can be good for both your physical and mental health.

Not to mention that it could cost less! The additional costs of spaying/neutering, vaccinations, and sometimes even microchipping can be included in the cost of a buying a shelter dog.
Another reason to choose a rescue dog is that well, you save a dog’s life! Not to mention that you also help other dogs in shelters and perhaps, make room for new dogs.

She is the sweetest little girl ever and the perfect part of our pack, please share if you can #AdoptDontShop”
Lastly, adopting a dog is one of the most emotionally rewarding things you’ll ever experience. Image sent in by Renee: “This is Einstein and Charlie. Each one a rescue. They are my world. Charlie is a schnoodle. Not sure of Einstein.”
