10 Benefits Of Adopting A Rescue Dog

5 Signs Your Dog Needs a Probiotic

Making the right match between pet and owner can be a rewarding experience for both. The same goes for a rescue dog.

But statistics show that only one out of every ten dogs born will find a permanent home.

With commitment, preparation, and research, there are many benefits to adopting a rescue dog. Here are 10 of them:

Foster To Adopt

Most rescues and shelters offer a foster-to-adopt program, which helps to determine whether the dog is a good fit, especially if you have children or other pets at home.

Save A Life

Adopting a dog gives him a second chance at life and makes room for other rescue dogs in need of a home. In return, you get a grateful dog.

Lifetime Support

Shelters offer support to their adopters and are available to answer questions.

Screened and Tested

Rescue dogs should have been neutered/spayed and vaccinated, and gone through behavior assessments and medical examinations before adoption.

Fully Trained

If you are new at dog ownership, you can adopt an adult dog who has good manners and is house trained.

Paying Less

It costs less to adopt a rescue dog, considering that he has been screened beforehand.

Breed & Mixes

Every breed and every mix are available at rescues and shelters. Approximately 30% of them are purebred, if that is what you prefer.

Lifestyle Match

With a variety of breeds and mixes, you can certainly find a dog that suits your lifestyle.

True Personality

Adopting a dog from a foster home provides insight on how he behaves in a home environment. The foster can share in detail the dog’s temperament and personality, his habits and quirks.

Fighting Puppy Mills

A dog adopted from your local rescue or shelter ensures that you are not supporting puppy mills and their unethical breeding practices.
