While it is easy to go to a breeder, you will also spend hundreds, if not thousands, for your pet. At the same time, there are a multitude of dogs and cats in your local shelter, begging for someone to love them.
Regardless of the fact that adopting is the right thing to do, it is also the frugal way to add a pet to your family. Adoption fees are a mere fraction of purchasing from a breeder. The pets have already been checked out by a vet, received their shots, and, in most cases, are already spayed or neutered. In a large number of shelters, discount adoption days are also held to reduce the population at that particular shelter or to help place pets which are 5 years or older.
Before adding to the over-population of pets that already exists by going to a breeder, take a trip to your local shelter. I can guarantee you that the love of your life is waiting for you there!!
