Dogs are man’s best friend. All they want is care and in return, they will care about you more. If you have little bit sympathy for dogs or have made up your mind adopting a dog, then, it is advisable to adopt a rescue dog.

Rescue dogs often experience anxiety for a variety of reasons. Often times, rescue dogs have experienced abandonment, neglect, or abuse. Therefore, when rescue volunteers save dogs from being euthanized at shelters or take them off the streets, their anxiety levels are already extremely high.

Benefits of adopting a rescue dog

Getting a dog from a rescued center is free or less expensive than investing in a pedigree pooch. Rescue dogs have been neutered. With adult dogs, it’s “what you see is that you get” and – they’re easier to tame. They’re grateful to their new masters for giving them a home. Some people feel they have more personality than a pedigree. Rescue dogs can be tough, but not impossible.

Saving a life feels good

  • You’ll get a friend who will love you forever.
  • By adopting a dog from a shelter, you’re literally saving the life of a helpless and innocent animal that deserves a second chance!

You’ll get a beautiful and unique companion

  • Rescued dogs come in all shapes, sizes, breeds, and personalities. You’ll find a pet to fit your lifestyle and personality.
  • Many of them are healthy and well-behaved but are relinquished because of a move, allergies, or financial constraints.

You’ll help fight dog cruelty

  • Puppy mills are inhumane and produce unhealthy and poorly socialized puppies and animals. When you buy an animal from a pet store, you’re supporting an industry that cares about profit more than animals.
  • Dog adoption takes a stand against dog cruelty and gives a homeless dog a safe place to live.

You’ll inspire others to adopt

  • There are millions of dogs in rescued shelters across the United States and all over the world, and all of them are waiting for a loving family.
  • By adopting your own sweet and friendly dog, you may encourage your friends and family to adopt, too!

You’ll help curb dog over-population

  • There are many more homeless dogs than there are shelters to care for them. Dog adoption helps create room for other animals that are in need of care.

You’ll get a lifelong support system

  • People who work at the rescue shelter will be a great resource for helping you find information or resources for your dog. If a dog is not well-socialized, many shelters have volunteers to help get the dogs accustomed to people and the environment.
  • Many rescue shelters include vaccinations, parasite treatment, and spay or neuter surgery in the adoption fee.

You’re helping the rescue shelter and the community

  • Adoption helps in creating space for new dogs so the shelters can get even more of them off the streets.

You’ll save money

  • Adoption from a shelter costs dog can easily cost $500 to $1,000 or more. Adoption costs range from $50 to $200. *You’re getting more for your money if you get a mixed breed. Based on the well-established principle of “hybrid vigor,” a mixed-breed dog is likely to live longer and cost less in vet bills than a pure breed.
  • Your adoption fee will help maintain the shelter, care for the animals, and promote public education about dog care and shelter medicine.

Dogs are counting on you! What are you waiting for to adopt them?

  • Take it through with your family, friends
  • Make sure no one in your family allergic to dog hair.
  • Think about whether you’ll really have the time to walk it
  • Remember the other pets you have. Would they get on?
  • If you have any doubts –don’t do it. It wouldn’t be fair to the dog otherwise.
  • Who’ll look after it while you’re on vacation?

How to adopt a dog from a rescue center

  • Check Social networks for rescue sites or pages advertising animals that are in need of a good home.
  • Contact the organization that is looking after the dog.
  • Spend time with the animals you like. It could be “love at first sight”.
  • Take your new friend home by car. Don’t forget about a dog mat
  • There’ll be some paperwork to make the adoption formal –this varies from country to country.
  • You can visit the rescue center several times so you and your new friend can get to know each other better.

Be prepared after adoption

  • Make sure you take it to a vet or animal clinic for a thorough examination and medical advice on treating any underlying conditions.
  • Shelter dogs might bark or howl, more than usual when you leave. Make sure there’s something for it to do when you’re out
  • The dog might be frightened by new people and even by its new home. Be kind to it
  • The dog may chew your things. Buy it toys and try to encourage it to be better behaved
  • Shelter animals are sometimes not used to going out for walks. It used to do its business in the kennel. Take it for frequent walks, and be patient while it adapts
  • Be responsible when deciding to adopt a shelter dog. Be patient with it
