Did you guys know that March 2021 is National Pet Adoption Month?
There are so many cool animal rescue groups and pet organisations that are dedicated to the 'adopt don't shop' initiative.
If you want to find out more, the team at PETStock Assist will have pet adoption experts (and rescue pets!) available in selected stores this month. They are working with local rescue groups to help educate others about the importance of pet adoption.
This includes helping those who are looking to become pet owners, find a pet that is best suited to their lifestyle and to help get rid of any negative stereotypes about pets up for adoption! (And believe us, there are many silly myths surrounding rescue pets).
One big myth is that all rescue pets are old, which is totes not true at all! Pets in shelters come in all sizes, ages and shapes! You can learn out more about pet adoption in the March issue of Total Girl, out now, where we bust some of the biggest rescue pet myths!
There are many ways to help out homeless pets without adopting, such as donating to your local animal shelter, or even fostering a pet! This is perf if you want to trial the responsibility of having your own li’l, super cute pet. But make sure you are ready, because being a pet owner is a big responsibility.
Remember, adopt, don't shop!
