Considering buying a new pet? Or know someone who is?

Australians are taking puppy steps to change the world. Over the last decade, the number of people adopting cats and dogs from animal shelters has doubled – a good sign that people are utilising pet adoption, and avoiding profitable puppy farms and backyard breeders.

 

Pet adoption has also resulted in the decline in the number of abandoned and euthanised pets in Australia since the turn of the millennium. According to the RSPCA between 1997 and 2005 show a 40% decline in the euthanasia rate. All good progress on the path to a no-kill rescue-loving Australia.

Adopting a pet is easy and cost effective. Dogs and cats are also health checked, microchipped, de-sexed and vaccinated. Competent adoption centres in Australia will also have a strict adoption procedure when pairing pets with their new owner, to establish a successful adoption and to make sure your time adopting a pet is a happy one.

But still 40% of dogs and 80% of cats that end up in pounds are unnecessarily killed, so if you are looking at buying a pet please consider rescuing one first, otherwise encourage someone else to!
