Adopt A Pet Today

Over the past couple of years, animal rescues have been gaining popularity and support from all sorts of pet lovers. Basically what rescues do is take in animals and adopt them out to loving homes. Local animal shelters can only provide minimal support for pets needing homes. As a result euthanasia is a unfortunate reality of overpopulated shelters. With the over population of shelters such as the SPCA, rescue organizations are many pets only and last chance at a new beginning.

All volunteer based rescues such as Boxer Rescue Ontario even go as far as fostering, transporting and placing boxers in selected homes. Organizations like this run solely on the support of their communities, operating on donations and fund-raising. Without extremely dedicated and loving volunteers, rescues such as Boxer Rescue Ontario would never exist.

Most good rescue organizations place their pets in homes that will suit both the pet and his new family. Factors such as temperament, medical history and age are all taken into consideration when placing pets in their new homes. So too should the new home match the pet.

.Even if you are

not able to adopt a pet right now, you can still get involved in the rescue process. A large part of rescue programs involves fostering surrendered pets. Often rescue groups receive pets that require a great deal of care and rehabilitation before they can be released for adoption. Foster homes provide that safe transition before a pet can go to their forever home.

If having more pets in your home is nut not going to happen, you can still get involved in rescue by providing transportation between homes. Many large rescue organizations place pets in homes all across the country, which require one or several drivers to transport the pets.

So when you are ready for your next pet, wether it be a parrot or a pig, a fox or a ferret or a. well you get the picture, consider finding a rescue organization and give a second chance to a deserving pet
