Animal Clinic Shares 3 Reasons to Choose Adoption, Foley, Alabama

Owning a pet can be a life-changing experience for you and your family; they provide companionship and emotional support and help to alleviate stress and depression. If you’re ready to add a furry friend to your family but don’t know where to look, the team at Animal Medical Center, the premier animal clinic in Foley, AL, are here to share a few reasons why you should adopt rather than buy from a breeder.

3 Benefits of Adopting a Pet

1. Save a Life

animal clinicEvery year, millions of pets end up as strays or are euthanized in shelters due to a lack of funds and homes. This number could be drastically reduced if people look to adopt their pets from shelters rather than purchasing from a breeder. Not only do you save a life, but you also help to free up space for other animals in need.

2. Spend Less Money

While the cost of adoption can cost up to a couple of hundred dollars, purchasing from a breeder is often three or four times that number. Many pets in shelters are already house trained and have had their shots, so you can also save money on training and medical expenses.

3. Fight Puppy Mills

Puppy mills are commercial breeding factories that prioritize money over the welfare of their dogs. Puppies are usually bred in poor conditions, given little medical attention, and suffer from medical and behavioral problems as a result. Many of these dogs are then sold to pet stores around the country. You can fight these inhumane factories by choosing to adopt.

After you adopt your new furry friend, the next step is to choose a fantastic animal clinic. For expert veterinary services in Foley, AL, turn to Dr. John Heilmeier and Dr. Kasey Singley at Animal Medical Center. They offer a wide range of pet care solutions, from medical exams to pet boarding and doggy day care.
