We frequently hear people dismiss pets as “just” animals as if their importance to our lives were negligible. They are completely wrong, though! Many of us are aware of the benefits of pet ownership, particularly the companionship and amazing bonds that form between us and our furry pets.
More people than ever are banding together to support animals globally today. Do you know that there are around 2,000 searches for pet adoptions in India each hour? Our world may not change because of animal rescue, but it certainly changes for that animal!
There are countless joyful, healthy creatures ready to be adopted from animal shelters and rescue organizations. All year long, animal shelters like ours provide puppies and kittens for adoption. Adopting a pet is more common now than buying one.
Even though over 100 animals are being rehomed at Friendicoes, adoptions are still very few compared to the number of animals left behind each year. The vast majority of animals in shelters are there because there is a significant dearth of accessible veterinary care, cheap, pet-friendly housing, and other conditions that call for systemic, long-term reform.
So you should adopt if you want to support the cause. Remember that many of the animals in the shelter lived in loving homes while we try to keep pets and their families together. They may even arrive at your home house-trained or prepared to live with other pets.
What kind of pets can you adopt in India?
In India, as in most other nations, dogs and cats are the two most common types of pets. But India also has many other popular pet options.
Help a pet in need
Here are some steps that will help you get started on the adoption of a pet:
Our responsibility doesn’t end here. After the formalities of adoption are finished, we stay in touch with the family to offer counseling and support during any hiccups to ensure successful adoption.
Take a pet promise!
Adopting a pet guarantees you a lifetime best friend and unconditional love! So it’s only fair that you promise to put forth a decent amount of time and effort, as well as to adapt your schedule and way of life to make this relationship work.
And most of all, promise that you won’t abandon your pet if you are unable to care for them for any reason. Promise to rehome them or place them in a shelter. So what are you waiting for?
