At ThunderWorks, we love all pets! We especially encourage pet ownership when it means that a shelter pet is getting rescued. Additionally, we annually donate funds and products to shelters in need across the nation.
Looking for some reasons to add a shelter pet to your life?
5 million animals are killed in shelters every year in the United States. Come to the rescue and be a hero by adopting. It’s more affordable, more convenient, and so rewarding. Saving a dog from the shelter won’t change the world, but it most certainly will change the world for that dog.
Pets have a way of putting a smile on your face and a spring in your step. Not only do animals give you unconditional love, but they have been shown to be psychologically, emotionally, and physically beneficial. Caring for a companion animal can provide a sense of purpose and fulfillment and lessen feelings of loneliness and isolation in all age groups!
We know choosing a new best friend isn’t an easy decision to make, and by all means requires a lot of attention and work. When visiting a shelter you may not find your next ‘perfect match’ dog on your first visit. But don’t give up! Keep checking back online and in person until you find the one that you think could be a part of your family.
We often work with Petfinder, and were honored to have been recognized last year with their first-ever “Petfinder Seal of Approval” for our ThunderShirt. This is a great resource for you to learn more about adopting a pet.
