Unhappy So you think you know where puppies & kittens come from...

People may wonder, why do these annoying people on Petfinder encourage us to spay and neuter our pets?

Why do they advise us to spay/neuter our pedigreed animals before putting them up for adoption? Surely we can more easily find an adopter for an intact animal, right?

Why do they encourage us to adopt pets rather than buying them, often repeating slogans like DON'T BREED OR BUY WHILE SHELTER ANIMALS DIE?

If you have an intact pedigreed animal up for adoption, or you're thinking of buying a pet from a pet-shop or a breeder whom you know nothing about, I beg you, read this article from an animal welfare organisation in Singapore.

Whether you buy a pedigreed pup or kitten from an unknown source, or whether you give up an intact (unneutered) pet, you may well be supporting puppy or kitten mills. I beg you: read this and look closely at the photos. Think about it. Make well-informed choices!

Thanks for sharing this great article, Amanda!

Once the people are more aware of the hard cold facts and with the beautiful alternative of adopting pets, I believe many of them would be more than happy to give it a try.

What better win-win situation than to save a life by adoption, and at the same time get a loyal buddy that'd shower you with a lifetime of love, loyalty and happiness?

Let's work hard together to make it happen - by providing both the proper education, and a convenient infrastructure for them to adopt pets!
