What Are Some of the Benefits of Adopting Rescued Puppies?

Benefits to adopting rescued puppies from animal shelters and rescue groups include saving a life, getting a bargain and fighting back against puppy mills. Many dogs are bred in puppy mills where they do not get proper health care or human companionship.

Adopting a rescued dog keeps the puppy mill from making any money because most puppy mill dogs are sold to pet stores and through classified ads. Rescuing a puppy through adoption also saves its life in many cases, as most shelters are kill shelters. It also is a bargain to adopt a puppy through a shelter because these shelters and rescue groups work hard to vaccinate and spay or neuter all puppies before they go home to the owner.
