If you feel like now is the time to welcome a new furry friend into your family, you might wonder which place is best to get your dog from: a breeder or a shelter. There is no right or wrong place however, there are some amazing benefits with rescuing your new family member from a shelter.

1. Shelters Are Cheaper

If you don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for a dog, consider adopting one from your local animal shelter. Rescuing a dog can be much cheaper than purchasing one from a breeder.

Paying to adopt a dog may seem a bit much for some people. They may think that since they are rescuing a dog that no one else wanted, it would be stupid to pay for it. However, you need to keep in mind that when you adopt a dog from a shelter, you are not paying for the dog, but paying an adoption fee to the shelter, at least that is the case with most of them.

The adoption fee is what allows the shelter to keep going and it is only fair that you contribute something to it. In any case, the adoption fee is still way cheaper than what you’d normally pay for a dog.
