To balance things out, we wanted to share with you three important facts about shelter animals that everyone should know.
Fact #1: You can find purebred puppies at rescue centers.
One of the main reasons people buy a pet rather than adopt is their legitimate desire to have a purebred dog.

So make sure to do some research before giving up the idea of adopting a pet just because you want a purebred pup.
Fact#2: The average age of puppies for adoptions is 18 months.
Although there are many adult canines in shelters who would all make excellent pets, if it’s a puppy you want, you should know you can get it from an animal shelter. Most rescue organizations keep puppies as well as grow-up dogs, so make sure to ask.
