What is pet adoption?
When someone adopts an animal they take ownership of an animal that has been abandoned or released to a shelter/rescue organization.
How much does it cost?
How long does it take?
Pet adoption can take several minutes or several hours depending on what organization you adopt from.
Where can you adopt?
There are many websites such as petfinder.com and adoptapet.com that will help you find your new best friend. But if you wish to go to a store first there are many places you can go such as petsmart, local animal shelter, and the ASPCA. The closest place to adopt a pet is the Coppell humane society. http://www.coppellhumanesociety.com/
Please adopt instead of just buying privately
These little critters are just waiting for you to adopt!
My adopted dog Shaggy
He is taller than me when he stands up on two legs. He weighs more than I do and is the friendliest (and laziest) dog you'll ever meet.
My adopted dog Woodie
Woddie is a mix between a Yorkie and a Norfolk Terrier.
But best of all, he was free!
