Adopt a “Less Adoptable” Pet - Infographic
Due to having special needs, looking a little different, or other uncontrollable circumstances, some shelter animals have a much harder time finding their forever homes than others. In fact, according to PetFinder.com, animals considered “less adoptable” wait nearly four times longer than the average animal to be adopted.
These animals include senior pets, pets with special needs, large black dogs, dogs with a bad reputation like pit bulls, and black cats. Given a shot, these animals can make loyal, loving companions when matched with a loving family. Perks of adopting any animal instead of purchasing one include a reasonable adoption fee, a shelter staff looking to match the right animal to the right pet owner, and the added benefit of knowing you saved a life.
