1. Why you will save the life of a German shepherd
One animal in a shelter is more than one in a million – it is one in 1.1 million. That is the number of adoptable cats and dogs that are still killed (euthanized) each year, just because there are too many pets arriving in shelters and few people to adopt.
The number of animals sacrificed could be drastically reduced if more people adopted pets instead of buying them. When you adopt, you save an animal and make room for another animal you might need. And trust me, there is no better feeling than that!
2. Because you will receive a great German shepherd
Animal shelters and rescue groups are full of happy and healthy German shepherds, waiting for someone to take them home. Most German shepherds in shelters did not end up there because they were bad pets – but simply because their owners moved, divorced, or some other problem that had nothing to do with the German shepherd.
3. Bragging about you being a hero
No one needs to see another selfie – unless it’s your selfie with the adorable German shepherd you just adopted, like the hero you are! Adopt a German shepherd, post the photos and let the love roll.
4. Because you will really get a great bargain!
When you adopt a German shepherd, the cost of sterilization, of the first vaccines and, sometimes, of the microchip is usually included in the adoption price, which means that you got a great bargain – a confusing deal that will thank you with wet kisses and loyalty for the rest of your life.
5. Dog fights!
You are too smart to buy a German shepherd at a pet store or online vendor – it is best to buy one directly from a puppy factory. Puppy factories are like factories – they are breeding facilities that put profit above the welfare of dogs. Puppy factory dogs are housed in very precarious conditions, with inadequate medical care and, as a result, often become very ill and have behavioral problems. The cubs’ mothers are kept in cages to be raised repeatedly, without the company of human beings and with little hope of joining a family.
And after they are no longer profitable, breeding dogs are simply discarded – killed, abandoned, or sold at auction. I get sick just from writing this.
Most puppies at pet stores and online are from puppy factories. Dogs are sold to innocent consumers in pet stores, over the Internet, and through classified ads. Puppy factories will continue to operate until people stop supporting them. When adopting a pet, you can be sure that you are not giving them a dime.
6. All your things will thank you!
Many German shepherds from shelters and rescues are already trained at home, which means that you are not only saving the life of a German shepherd, but also your carpet.
7. You are environmentally responsible
You recycle your everyday things, like paper and plastic, so they don’t end up in landfills. All of these recycled things end up creating a lot of new things. A “recycled” German shepherd can do something even better: he can make you happy.
8. Because all German shepherds are good for your health – BUT a foster German shepherd is good for your self-esteem
German shepherds not only give you unconditional love, but they have also proven to be very beneficial for your psychological well-being, emotional and physical. Caring for a companion The German shepherd can provide a sense of purpose and satisfaction and lessen the feeling of loneliness and isolation for all ages. And when you adopt, you can also be proud to help a German shepherd in need.
9. It’s incredibly easy
Anyone who doesn’t want it to be easy to buy a German shepherd or any pet. Go to the Shelter Pet Project to find pets near you, of all sizes, colors, temperaments, and breeds. Do you want a white German shepherd who likes scratches on alternate Thursdays? You can probably find one.
10. Because you will change a German Shepherd’s life
AND get a new best friend for a bargain. Seriously, what could be better than that?
