There are many misconceptions when it comes to adopting a pet from an animal shelter in Abbotsford WI 54405. These misconceptions cause many great animals to be overlooked and often put down because nobody in Abbotsford WI 54405 wants them. This article will take a look at a couple of the fallacies and attempt to dispel them.
The first false fact we will look at is the idea that shelter pets are not healthy. This could not be further from the truth. Animal shelters in Abbotsford WI 54405 are full of volunteers and strict guidelines to ensure that each and every pet is as healthy as be. Only when it is will that pet be put up for adoption. On the other end of the spectrum, if you buy a pet from a store, odds are good it comes from some sort of animal mill and is far more likely to be unhealthy than those in shelters.

The BC SPCA Abbotsford Branch got a call about three kittens who were only two days old. Their mom wasn't nursing them after she had gone through a traumatic c-section. A lovely feline mother already in care at the shelter, nursing her own two kittens, immediately adopted the three kittens in need. She perked up when she heard their little cries and she began cleaning them right away. Now they are happily nursing! Happy day!The next myth is perpetuated by people in Abbotsford WI 54405 who want a purebred animal and think they cannot find one at a shelter. There are oodles of purebred pets at animal shelters. Sometimes it may just take a little bit of searching to find one that interests you. But they are there if someone is looking for them.The next fallacy is that pets in shelters must have bad temperaments; otherwise they would not be there. Once again, this is so untrue. When an animal comes into a shelter it is tested for temperament before being put up for adoption in Abbotsford WI 54405. If it has any behavioral issues, staff and volunteers will work with him or her to overcome them. However, most of the time this is not even necessary, as the majority of these pets are super loving and affectionate and make wonderful additions to a family. They just need a chance.In order to adopt from a ABBOTSFORD, British Columbia Animal Shelter you will need a Drivers License or photo ID and must be at least 18 years of age.One last myth we will bust is that shelter in Abbotsford WI 54405 pets do not get along with other animals. Every animal is different, so in some cases this could be true. However most of the time it is not.

The best way to find this out is to have an introduction between the shelter pet and the other pets or children in the household. Then you can be sure everybody will get along.
