Rescue Your New Best Friend
Millions of dogs and cats are euthanized each year simply because the number of people giving up pets is far outnumbered by people adopting them from shelters. With very little space at shelters, sadly many animals who aren’t adopted are euthanized. If more people adopted pets instead of buying them, however, the number of animals being put to sleep could be dramatically reduced.
Let's Help Together
Thinking about adding a dog or cat to your family? Why not consider adoption? You'll find an amazing pet and will be providing much needed support to your local rescue organization! For our part, UKUSCAdoggie is helping by promoting the work of the Nevada Humane Society, publicizing events and sharing pets available for adoption.
Adopt Don't Shop!
There are so many reasons why you should adopt your new furry friend! Firstly, you will be saving not just one animal’s life, but two – the pet you adopt and the one who will then be able to take his place. Shelters are full of happy, healthy, well-socialized animals. In most cases they have been spayed or neutered, micro chipped, and vaccinated. Shelters do a great job of making you aware of any behavioral issues so that you can be sure your new pet will be a good fit for your family.
Be assured that most dogs and cats end up in shelters, not because they were bad, but rather because their owners’ circumstances changed. Animals from shelters tend to bond very well with their new parents and in a new loving home, will try their best to please.
Adopting a pet is far less expensive than buying one and with all the medical care thrown in, even after paying the adoption fee, chances are you’ve saved money. Above all, by adopting instead of buying a pet, you can be happy knowing that you are not supporting cruel puppy mills, which until people stop buying dogs, will continue to operate.
Above all, pets make us smile – they love unconditionally and having them around benefits us psychologically, emotionally and physically. The health benefits attributed to dog-care activities are well-documented. Having them around provides us with a sense of purpose and reduces feelings of loneliness and isolation, no matter our age. Yes, pets are not just good friends, they’re good medicine!
We're Helping to Support Rescue Organizations!
There are so many great animal rescue organizations out there! We try our best to offer our support by making donations, publicizing upcoming events and sharing information.
Nevada Humane Society
Nevada Humane Society (NHS) is a charitable, non-profit organization. The only open-admission, no-kill shelter in the State of Nevada, the organization has been serving the Northern Nevada community for over 90 years.
With a mission to bring people and animals together to create a no-kill community in Northern Nevada, NHS helps more than 18,000 pets in need every year, providing shelter and care to homeless pets, adoption services, low-cost public spay/neuter and vaccination services, pet food assistance and other services.
Without the donations and support NHS receives from the community, they would not be able to do their important, life-saving work, so as a local business in the Reno area, UKUSCAdoggie is keen to help by volunteering and donating a portion of our profits to this great organization. Please know that when you shop at UKUSCAdoggie, you are also helping to support Nevada Humane Society shelter pets, and we are all so grateful.
