During the holidays, many people get new pets on impulse, unaware of the high maintenance that comes with the animal.
You must be able to invest time and money in a pet. That’s why countless puppies, kittens, and even rabbits end up in shelters.
While many of the shelters are kill-free, being in one is a dismal experience for animals. Adoption agencies in Union County such as Carolina Pet Adoption & Welfare Society, Blind Dog Rescue Alliance, and Blue Line Kennel Pet Rescue encourage families to take animals of all ages and impairments.
This holiday season, instead of buying a puppy from a pet store, why not adopt?
Animal shelters are at capacity with unwanted pets. There are dogs that are no longer puppies, cats that are no longer kittens; animals that have outgrown their youth and have been cast aside.
