We, at Dogs All the Time, personally urge people to rescue and adopt shelter dogs.
There are plenty of dogs in animal shelters that are desperately seeking for owners to love and care for them. But apart from saving a dog’s life, there are plenty of other reasons why rescuing dogs is an ideal choice. First, adopting is actually cheaper than shopping. Adoption costs range from US$50 to $200 (depending on the shelter you’ve checked) while buying a pet can cost you $500 or more.
Not just that, the majority of rescue groups provide pet owners support especially if you have questions or problems with the dog you’ve recently rescued. There are plenty of other reasons why adopting dogs is an ideal choice, and today, to encourage more to become a dog rescuer themselves, we’ve collected a list of beautiful and inspiring quotes about dog rescue:
“Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.”
– Karen Davison
“Adopt. If you can’t adopt, foster. If you can’t foster, sponsor. If you can’t sponsor, donate. If you can’t donate, educate.”
“The sadness I feel looking into cages is nothing compared to how it must feel looking out.”
“When you adopt a shelter pet, you save 2 lives. The one you adopt, and the one that takes its place.”
Money will buy a pretty good dog, but it won’t buy the wag of his tail.
– Josh Billings (Henry Wheeler Shaw)
“Hi,” I said. She came over, licked my hand discreetly, allowed herself to be scratched for a time, chased her tail in a dignified circle, lay down again. I remember thinking: “There are times God puts a choice in front of you.” I often had such thoughts back then. We took the dog.
A dog is for life, and not just for Christmas.
– National Canine Defense League slogan
Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet.
-Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
Dogs are better than human beings because they know but do not tell.
He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.
