You probably already know that pet shops that host animal adoptions are far better than those that sell pets for profit. This is because most of the pets sold in pet stores come from inhumane puppy and kitten mills. However, other pet related businesses can also work with pet rescues to benefit both their individual profits as well as the efforts put forth by the rescue group.
As more and more cities are banning the sale of live pets in pet shops, more people are turning to rescue groups to find their animal companions. Rescue groups need as many outlets as possible to showcase their available pets. Pet related businesses are able to provide that outlet.
When pet related businesses and pet rescues partner together they create a mutual working relationship. Pet related businesses looking to partner with rescue groups should look for groups that are well-organized, offer ongoing support when needed and are able to expedite the adoption process. This is extremely important as one of the main complaints about adopting from pet rescues is that the adoption process takes too long. When there is a significant hold up, potential adopters are more likely to change their mind.
When businesses that sell pet supplies partner with rescue groups they might give a portion or all of the profits of those sales back to the rescue. Funding is an extremely important part of keeping an animal rescue running. Without proper funding, animals cannot be fed, vaccinated, spayed or neutered, or properly cared for. Supporting small businesses that help pet rescue is an excellent way for consumers to get involved with the rescue of domestic pets.
