-How many of you own a pet? How many of you love your pet? A lot of you, I see.  
-Animals in animals shelters deserve the same love as any other animal. 
-Today I will be telling you why it is important to adopt pets from pet shelters, why buying a pet from a pet store could be worse in the long run, and how you can help animals in animals shelter, even if you cannot adopt one.

-According to humanesociety.org, 6-8 million pets end up in shelters each year and half of those pets will probably not be adopted.
--When some people think of pets from shelters they think "dirty, mean, and abused animals" while that may be the case for some, it is not true for all. "Most pets end up homeless through no fault of their own--"moving" and "landlord issue" are the  top reasons people are willing to give their pets to pet shelters, which means that most pets in shelters are just as clean and kind as any other pet".
-Referring back to my first point, many people think that pets from pet shelters are not good quality pets and that's why so many people prefer to go to pet stores to purchase a dog but did you all know that aspca.org says that 25 percent of pets in pet shelters are purebred.

There are many benefits that come from adopting a pet from a pet shelter.
--The first benefit that you will get from adopting a pet from a pet shelter is that when a pet is first dropped off at a shelter "most shelters evaluate a dog's behavior when he/she arrives and that information 
can help you determine what kind of training your new dog needs. Thanks to the efforts of volunteers and staff, many shelters can give the dogs a head start on training before they are even adopted.

-Another benefit you get is that is that it is more cost efficient to adopt from a pet shelter. " Animals from many pet shelters are already spayed or neutered and vaccinated, which makes the shelter's fee a real bargain"

-When you go to a pet store and you see those fluffy adorable little dogs, your first thought is how cute! Your first thought usually isn't that most of those cute little furballs are from puppy mills. 
--Puppy mills are factory style breeding facilities that put profit above the welfare of dogs. Most animals raised in puppy mills are housed in shockingly poor conditions with improper medical care, and the parents of the puppies are kept in cages to be bred over and over for years, without human companionship and with little hope of ever joining a family.

And after they are no longer profitable, breeding dogs are simply discarded--either killed, abandoned or sold at auction.

There are some ways that you can help the animals in animals shelters live a happier life. You can simply help out animals in need by volunteering at your local pet shelter and help out in taking care of the animals. If you decide you could do something more the animals, you could start a fundraising campaign to raise money for your local shelter to buy food and supplies for their animals. 
In conclusion, people should adopt from shelters because it would benefit not only the owner, but the pet itself and the other pets in shelters because the money paid to adopt a pet goes back to the shelter to buy supplies. By adopting you support shelters in their mission to keep animals safe and you provide a second chance for an animal.
