Are you thinking about adding a new four-legged addition to the family? While there are legitimate breeders who care about the dogs they breed and sell, there are several puppy mills that do no favors to the dogs they breed or the people who buy their puppies. Besides the cruel treatment of their breeding dogs and the overpriced and often unhealthy puppies they produce, these puppy mills are only adding to the dog overpopulation problem in the U.S. There are thousands of dogs that end up in the shelter, hoping for a second chance but are often over looked because they are “used” or not “pure bred”.
As the proud owner of three mutts, I can say that pound puppies are the best dogs to have. Most mutts do not fall victim to pure bred health issues that arise from years of inbreeding. If the adopted dog comes with baggage, it’s nothing you can’t fix with consistent training, patience, and lots of love. There is nothing wrong with buying a pure bred dog from a respectable breeder; after all, those dogs need a home too. Just remember, there are no guarantees with any dog you get. So why not take a chance on a rescue dog?
This memorial weekend, Floor & Décor Outlets, in Norco, will be hosting a pet adoption event on Sunday, May 29th, and Monday, May 30th, from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. each day. There will adoptable pets from three different rescues, one of which will be the Corona Animal Shelter. Dogs from the Corona Animal Shelter will be available from $25 - $95 and most dogs are ready to go home with you that day.
Even if you are not ready to add another member to your pack, pass the word along to a friend so these animals have a better chance of finding a new forever home.
Floor & Décor Outlets is located at 200 Hidden Valley Pkwy in Norco, across the parking lot from the 76 gas station and McDonalds, adjacent to the Albertsons and Target shopping center.
