Welcoming a dog into your life is a wonderful thing that will bring you endless joy but it is also a great responsibility. Once you have made that huge decision you have the further responsibility of choosing where you should go to find your perfect pet partner. So, if you are looking for reasons to adopt a rescue dog, here they are:
What do you do with your pets when you go away? A dilemma for many people. There are several options, each with their own pros and cons.
Cats are obligatory carnivores and are very different from humans and dogs in their dietary requirements. It is essential to remember that cats are not little dogs! They are very inflexible about what food they need to remain healthy.
If you have a pet cat or dog, or you are thinking of adopting, one of the most important decisions you need to make for their health, safety and happiness, and for your local community, is to get that animal spayed or neutered. So, why should you do it and what does it involve?
Increasingly our four legged friends are visiting vets with a range of illnesses, such as allergies, respiratory complaints, skin irritations and heart conditions that may have their roots in a poor diet. There is an alternative that only requires a little thought and some planning.
There is a myth that animals from a rescue centre must be difficult, why else would they be there? So many people would rather buy a dog or a cat from a breeder, thus creating the demand for more and more animals to be bred, often in appalling conditions. Sadly here in Spain, there is also a culture of not neutering animals, thus creating an even greater problem.
