Please be socially responsible!

Mysureans are generally socially responsible. Many of us bike or take public transportation to work. We buy local and organic produce. We make an extra effort to make ethical lifestyle choices. So when it comes to animals, why do we continue to buy rather than adopt?

When you adopt an animal, you’re not just saving the life of the animal you’re welcoming into your home. You’re giving another animal an opportunity to be adopted and find a new family. You are also reducing the demand that keeps puppy and kitten mills in business. Many people buy from animal mills without realizing that these breeding facilities abuse and neglect their animals.

Each year, millions of unwanted animals enter shelters across India.Every year many animals are euthanized, and many more small animals, like rabbits, meet the same fate. Adoption helps break this cycle and put an end to the animal mill industry.

If you would still rather buy than adopt, make sure you buy from a responsible, reputable breeder. Don’t support animal mills!
