Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet

It’s Adopt A Less Adoptable Pet Week! This is definitely an issue we’re happy to help spread awareness about. Thousand—if not millions—of sweet, lovable pets are having a hard time getting adopted. If you’re ready to bring a new pet into your home, why not consider giving one of these guys a chance? A Flat Rock, NC vet lists some reasons to adopt a less adoptable pet in this article.

They’re Adorable

Our four-legged friends come in all shapes and sizes. One thing they all have in common? They’re all cute in their own way! Even the pups winning the Ugly Dog Contests have their own charms. You may find that it doesn’t take your furry pal long at all to completely melt your heart.


Pets are quite intuitive, and tend to be very grateful to the people who have helped them. Unconditional love and loyalty are wonderful rewards for giving a sweet pet great TLC!

They’re Often Easy Keepers

Many people pass by less-adoptable pets because they worry that they will require a lot of care and/or medical treatment. This isn’t necessarily true, however. Dogs and cats adapt very well to issues like hearing and vision loss, and can even bounce back (literally) from amputations. Their care needs just may be a bit different. For example, you may need to set out runners for a blind dog, or teach a deaf pup to respond to hand signals. That’s not so hard!

Help Animals In Need

It’s hard to see—or even read about—homeless pets without feeling sorry for them. Pets often end up in shelters through no fault of their own. However, while puppies and kittens often get adopted very quickly, the ‘imperfect’ ones face very tough odds. This is very sad, because sometimes the dogs and cats no one wants make the best pets.

Promote Good Animal Welfare

When you adopt a pet, you’re not only helping your new four-legged buddy. You’re also helping other pets in need! Those adoption fees will help the shelter financially. Plus, you’ll also be freeing up space, so another homeless pet has a chance at getting adopted. This is a small thing that can end up making a really big difference!
