Don’t Believe These Rescue Pet Misconceptions
Rescue pets sometimes get an unfair bad rap. It’s important that you don’t believe everything you hear. Below, your London, ON vet tells you about three myths you shouldn’t believe.
Rescue Pets Aren’t Well-Behaved
This isn’t true! Most rescue pets are perfectly well-behaved and are just looking for a loving home. Rescue pets wind up in shelters for many other reasons besides poor behavior, including uncontrolled breeding and abandonment!
Rescue Pets Are Old
Think all pets in shelters are old, unwanted animals? Think again. There are pets of all ages—puppies and kittens, middle-aged animals, and elderly pets too—in shelters. If you’re looking for a specific age of the pet, consider taking a look at your shelter facility.
Rescue Pets Are Mutts
Do you have your heart set on a particular breed of cat or dog? Tour your local shelter before visiting a breeder or pet store. It’s entirely possible that the rescue has your ideal breed of dog or cat! Shelters have more than just mixed-breeds; it all depends on what particular animals have happened to find their way to that facility.
