When you purchase a pet, you are supporting an industry that is only looking to make money with no regard for the consequences to the animals. Most animals in pet stores began their life in a puppy mill, backyard breeder or other similar situation. These animals often have both medical and behavioral issues due to poor socialization, in breeding and cramped living situations. However, if you choose to adopt a pet, you are not only saving the life the animal you adopt but you are also making space for another animal to be saved from euthanasia.
