Why Adopt?

Why should you Adopt?

Because you’ll save a life!!!

Sadly, each year thousands of amazing dogs and puppies are euthanized in Cairns and around Australia.

Adopt! Don’t Shop!

Too many shop-bought pets become unwanted and end up in pounds and shelters. The number of animals euthanized could be reduced dramatically if more people adopted pets instead of buying them.

When you adopt, you save a loving animal by making them part of your family, this also helps open a foster or shelter space for another animal who might desperately need it.

Money Saving

When you adopt an animal, the cost of de-sexing, vaccinations, microchipping and all other initial vet work is included in the adoption price, this leaves you with extra money for quality food and supplies for your new family member! Please remember dogs in Australia need monthly worming tablets and yearly vaccinations. Many of the pets from pounds and rescues are already house trained, this means you’re not only saving an animals life, you’ll also save on housebreaking and training expenses.

Say NO to Puppy Mills!

When you buy a dog from a pet store, online seller or flea market, you’re almost certainly getting a dog from a puppy mill. Did you know that all breeders should be providing you with a BIN number. If they don’t you are supporting an illegal practice.

Bring Happiness into your Home

Not only do animals give you unconditional love, but they have been shown to be psychologically, emotionally and physically beneficial to their companions. Caring for a pet can provide a sense of purpose and fulfilment and lessen feelings of loneliness. And when you adopt, you can also feel proud about helping an animal in need!

Save Multiple Lives!

Adoption helps more than just one animal. Overburdened pounds shelters and rescues take in thousands of stray, abused, and lost animals every year, and by adopting an animal, you’re making room for others. Not only are you giving more animals a second chance, but the cost of your adoption goes directly towards helping those rescues give better care for the animals they take in!

By adopting you will change a homeless animal’s whole world. You will also get a new best friend who will stick with you for life! What could be better than that?!
