If you’re thinking of adopting a pet, here are some stories to give you that little push.
I adopted my dog Emmett in 2006. It was, truly, love at first sight for both of us. At the time, I had no clue he was considered a “pit bull” and no clue that he would change my life, turning me into an animal advocate and educating people on the plight of pit bulls. After Emmett came Lucas, a shepherd mix, and Cooper, another pit mix. We hike, play, and snuggle—adopting the three of them has been the best life-changing adventure. Here are more adoption stories to inspire you to consider adoption.

My husband and I adopted several strays over the years. I suppose it would be more accurate to say they adopted us! We love doing our part to lessen the homeless animal population and they are so grateful to have a family that loves them.
