Adopting a Puppy From an Animal Shelter

Author admin    Category Humane Society     Tags

A puppy can bring a lot of joy in your life and this little furry friend could be a great companion who will give love and affection for you until the end. If you have made a decision to get a puppy, you have a few options. You can get your puppy from a dog breeder or you can adopt one from one of the Humane Society animal shelters or any other puppy rescue organizations.

However, it’s always best if you decide to adopt a puppy from an animal shelter. There are so many dogs in these shelters waiting for a decent home. A lot of these dogs and puppies are victims of abandonment and abuse, and they might be ‘put to sleep’ if no one is willing to take them home. The downside about adopting a puppy from a shelter is you can’t always get the breed that you want. You may love a Yorkshire Terrier or Cocker Spaniel, but the shelter may only have a French Bulldog or Dachshund puppy. In fact, you can’t always find a puppy at these shelters, most of the time you will only find adult dogs.

But you are definitely doing a noble thing when adopting a dog from an animal shelter, whether it’s an adult dog or a puppy. It’s pretty simple to adopt a puppy from a shelter, just go to an animal shelter near you and choose a puppy or a dog in that matter. The shelter worker will then help you with the adoption process. Usually there will be a preliminary interview or you may also have to complete an adopter survey. Then you will also need to pay for an adoption fee before you can take your puppy home.

During this process, the shelter will also be able to find the right breed based on your personality and situation. This is actually very helpful for you, having a puppy that matches your personality will really make everything a lot easier for you. But whatever breed that matches with you, whether it’s a Labradoodle, Bichon Frise, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Cockapoo, Pugs or something else, you will have a lot of fun with your new puppy.
