Everyone’s heard about the importance of adopting over shopping when it comes to adding a new furry member to the family. There are tons of animals out there that need homes, and with each rescued animal, a space opens up for a dog on death row.
Among the thousands of reasons to rescue an animalare: they will be so grateful for a warm bed; they will likely already have all of their starter medical care taken care of by the rescue organization; and they’ve been socialized with other animals and humans, so they’re more likely to behave. Just to name a few.
I’ve always been an advocate for adoption. When I walk past a pet store, I even manage to turn away from the pups in the window in order to refrain from supporting the puppy mill or backyard breeder trade. It’s definitely not easy, but there are simply too many pups out there already in need of immediate rescue, living on the streets and in shelters, to consider purchasing a dog…
However, I’ve never thought about rescuing a dog from the streets in the way this video shows it. When you see Pit Crew IL Rescue’s portrayal of stray dogs and why we need to be working harder to save them, you’ll want to head out to your local rescue right away and take one home with you.
By the time I reached the end, I was in tears.
