A pet that is. Why do so many people go out and get puppies and kittens instead of adopting ones that are stuck in shelters that are a few years old? I see so many people go out and get puppies and kittens when I see all these animals who have been locked up in crates at shelters waiting for someone to adopt them and it makes me so sad.
I'm editing this to add that I mean IF you're going to get a pet, why not adopt/rescue. Obviously, if you don't want a pet, then I understand, but if you DO want a cat or dog, why not adopt or rescue?
