If you live in the greater Phoenix area- please make a donation to our wonderful Animal Care and Control. They operate on donations more than anything and need your help- especially with the influx from foreclosed homes. Any amount helps. This is the shelter where Muttnews mascot Ben came from.
Boohyah! Finally, a celebrity that not only supports pet adoption in words but in actions. I’ve been a huge supporter of ‘pound puppies’ since I was 4. All these ‘designer dogs’ annoys me when there are wonderful mutts out there that need love as well. Especially when an actor says “Adopt a pet!” and then they themselves don’t follow through… *cough* and in my opinion, dogs from shelters are better anyway *cough* I have gotten several dogs/cats from shelters (and a few from the side of the road) and they’ve been the best!!
Go Jared. I believe my respect for him has gone up a tweeny bit after seeing this.
Speaking as someone who has a pound puppy and a designer dog who was a private rescue/adoption- I have to agree. And the truth is not only mutts but purebred dogs are available at shelters. When we got Ben- a week after our rescued Golden Retriever passed away- there was a beautiful purebred Malamute being surrendered by heartbroken owners who couldn’t keep him at their new rental house, there was a gorgeous $5000 neapolitan mastif who had gotten too big for his owners. WHAT? Mastif= MASSIVE- what were they smoking? I looked at a very hyper young German Shepard who seemed to be there because he really wanted to dig his way to China. Ben the little Corgi-Akita mix really won us over with his big bright eyes, sunny disposition and friendly ways. And he had no interest in getting to Asia.
Going to a shelter and looking at adult dogs allows to you make sure you know what you getting- no surprises like you get from a puppy, every shelter dog I have had needed a little help with house training , some basic obediance and learning how to be a dog. Luckily all it really takes is some time, patience, love and understanding and the commitment to take care of your friend for his/her lifetime.
