Shelters have a wide range of lovable pets, there are different breeds, sizes, shapes and ages, and your chances of finding a lovable companion are much higher than if you bought one from a pet shop.
Here are some of the reasons why you will be better off adopting a pet from a shelter:
Last month there was a story in the Daily Mail about a kitten that was found frozen in the middle of the road one wintry morning in Ohio. Instead of meeting a cold harsh death, this lovable cat (suitably named 'Frosty') is another animal rescue successful story thanks to the compassion and quick thinking of his rescuers. This story again shows that if it wasn't for the hard work and dedication of animal rescue shelters, many animals would not meet such a positive fate. Let's take a look further into Frosty's remarkable 'tail'.
Ok we may be a tad overexaggerating since we are huge fans of pets!

If you or anyone you know owns a pet rabbit in Sydney's north then best to listen up! If you happen to reside in the north of Sydney, you may have noticed the abundance of wild rabbits hopping around the neighbourhood. Although these wild rabbits look incredibly cute and harmless, they are actually a threat to native wildlife and plants. In an effort to curb the wild rabbit population, the National Parks and Wildlife Services will start releasing contaminated bait from late March to early April throughout the area.
We heard a story recently from the NZ Herald about a family's pet cat who almost died from medication poisoning. The unfortunate occurrence was associated with flea medication prescribed for dogs being administered to their cat, Dexter. Dexter was seriously ill and near the brink of death, but was managed to be saved thanks to the hard work of a dedicated vet. We were glad to hear that Dexter managed to pull through his ordeal (thank goodness!). However, we have encountered other pets brought before us at the veterinary hospital who have not been so lucky.This problem raises the importance of always checking whether a particular medication is safe to give to your pet.
