DON'T SHOP - ADOPT
Bahamas is certainly not short of two things, unowned dogs and unowned cats. Here are some compelling reasons to adopt rather than buy an animal.
You’re getting more for your money if you get a mixed breed such as a Potcake or Potcat. They are likely to live longer and cost less in vet bills than a pure breed. Many purebred dogs are prone to developing health problems ranging from breathing difficulties to hip dysplasia to an enlarged heart.
When you adopt a pet, you are saving a life!
You get just as much love (if not more). An adopted pet is every bit as loving, intelligent and loyal as a purchased pet, even if you get an adult or older animal.
