Why I’ll Never Buy From A Breeder

7th November 2016

Anyone who reads this most likely has a friend or two who is regularly sharing updates on their local animal shelter.

Maybe they’re sharing a photo of a  pet who has been at the shelter for over 365 days or a lost pet who the shelter is caring for.

Whatever the case may be, animal shelters do a whole lot of good for animals, you, and the world as a whole.

Thousands, if not millions of animals get misplaced, tied up to trees, or left in crates in pouring rain. The animals only hope is that someone will find him or her and then what’s next?

Most likely, the animal will be dropped off at an animal shelter, where the people there will have to do A LOT of work for 1 animal. (This is if they are found, sadly, many animals are left to die due to the person no longer wanting to care for the animal).

The animal shelter has to work with the animals possible behavior issues, fear, get the dog updated on vaccinations, get them spayed or neutered, and possibly much more depending on the animals health.

OneGreenPlanet states that 2.7 million adoptable animals die every year in shelters.

Find out why I'll never buy from a breeder. This is a helpful list of reasons why you shouldn't buy from a breeder, either. Continue reading

8th June 2015

My time in Cuzco, Peru has been absolutely wonderful. I definitely recommend everyone and anyone taking a few solo trips abroad. You will not only learn so much about a different country, but you will also learn so much about yourself.

Traveling solo has opened a whole new world for me and I’ve gained a boatload of confidence and independence that I would never have had before if I wouldn’t have traveled solo.
