"We currently have two dogs adopted from shelters, and through the years we have made a home for a large number of pets that someone else didn't want. Although I've had some excellent pure-bred dogs for hunting, you just can't beat a shelter dog for affection and companionship. I'm sold on them!"

"I have not adopted a pet from a shelter. However, a person I work with is highly involved in KC REGAP (REtired Greyhounds As Pets), he manages their website and his wife is the adoption coordinator. He has been very helpful in my understanding for the need for people to look at adoption centers for pets. If I chose to get another pet. I would seriously consider adoption next time."

"I have not. We had to put our dog to sleep earlier this year and haven't decided if I want another pet or not."

Our current dog, Walli (Walter) is a shelter pet from Ft. Leavenworth, and he is a major part of our family. When we go on vacation or go camping, he goes with us - he loves rides in the car & sitting around on "lazy days." My previous dog, Ivan, was from 7th St Vet and our dear cat, Rainey, was from a stray's litter who adopted my parent just before she delivered. My one "papered" dog, Patty, was a wonderful pet, but our other pets were just a wonderful. If there's a pet I find irresistible, I wouldn't hesitate to adopt from a shelter again!
