Where's the Best Place to Get a Dog?
from the ASPCA Newsletter April 2009
The ASPCA recommends avoiding pet stores because so many get their puppies from puppy mills—commercial breeding facilities that keep animals in terrible conditions and use canine parents for breeding purposes only.
As a consequence, many pet store animals suffer from congenital health problems, not to mention poor socialization and numerous other issues. Well-run shelters, on the other hand, examine the animals carefully, then vaccinate, deworm, spay or neuter, and perform a behavioral assessment on each adoptable pet. That information is then used to try to match an adopter with an animal who meets his needs and fits into his lifestyle. Many shelters also provide follow-up health care and behavior advice, and will even take the animal back if things don't work out. Adopting from a shelter turns out to be a much better deal!
