Top 5 Reasons You Should Not Buy Pets
Having animal friends is great. But it’s so crucial not to buy them! Let me explain why…
I’m sure you’re not aware of these 5 important reasons to not buy pets actually! Get aware of them and if you really love animals take care of them properly – do your best to make them happy and healthy ♥
1. Save Your Money!
I’m NOT talking about denying pets but about adopting them! Why buy if you can adopt and save a life also give a loving family? Eventually, it’s silly, isn’t it? Additionally adopted pets are usually healthier and less expensive!
2. It’s Unnecessary
Some people desire to have only purebred pets. And they usually cost too much for the owner to buy and take care of them if they get them from a pet store. But what if I tell you that you can adopt even a purebred pet from animal shelter?! Sounds weird?) It’s because each year, about 2.7 million dogs and cats are killed because shelters are too full and there aren’t enough adoptive homes. So be that loving home for your future pet ♥
Moreover, rescued animals have a unique way of connecting with their humans.
3. You’re Supporting A Cruel Business
Did you know that 90% of pet store dogs are from puppy mills where dogs are kept in constrained cages and treated inhumanely?! This is just a business and if animals can’t stand up for yourself because of being voiceless you can do that instead of them! Don’t support this violence and be the voice for the voiceless.
4. You Can Rescue An Animal & Save Lives
You’re saving lives both your adopted pet and those who will be raised for a pet store. It’s all about demand and supply, buddy! The Humane Society of the US estimates that 4 million dogs and cats will be “euthanized” this year in America. You can help change that horrible situation! Be smarter and be a superhero in this situation saving the lives of millions of animals.
5. It may threaten your life
Even if you buy a pet from a pet store you can’t be 100% confident that the animal is healthy even though you get a health certificate of the pet. It only means that the animal passed a brief “wellness” check by a veterinarian which doesn’t require checks for genetic disorders, parasites or testing for diseases such as Giardia and Brucellosis — both of which run rampant in puppy mills and are contagious to humans.
