Adopt your next furry friend rather than buying them from a pet store or breeder.
Choosing to adopt can help save the life of an animal that may not otherwise get a second chance at finding a loving home.
Every year, thousands of animals get surrendered to shelters around New Zealand: dogs, cats, birds, mice, rats, rabbits and more. Some of them have suffered greatly and all of them deserve a second chance at life with a loving family.
Top tip: Are you ready for another family member? Always remember that animals feel happiness and pain just like you do – they need more than love to be happy. You need to take time to consider if an animal would be happy, healthy and safe in your home. If your family is ready for a companion animal, always choose to adopt.
