Looking to add a new pet to your household? Forget about pet stores and breeders and turn to your local animal shelters and rescue organizations. Why should you rescue an animal instead of buying one, you ask? For one, adopting a pet means saving a life; two, you won’t contribute to a problem called pet overpopulation; and three, you’ll actually save a lot of money. Purchasing a dog or a cat from a breeder can cost thousands of dollars while adopting comes with fees costing no more than a few hundred total. And for that money you get a vet-checked, vaccinated, sometimes even neutered, spayed and microchipped pet.
But what to do if you don’t have any animal shelters nearby or you just cannot find what you’re looking for? No worries, online pet adoption websites can help you find exactly what you want and need with just a few clicks. So, if you’re ready to add a pet to your family, be it a dog, cat, bird, reptile or even a horse, check out some of the following pet adoption websites.
