VIDEO: What to consider when adopting a shelter pet

By Graham Harrington

April 30, 2024

There’s no scientific way to prove that pets adopted from an animal shelter have more love to give than those purchased from a breeder or pet store. But ask anyone who’s ever provided a forever home to a furry family member they found at an animal shelter, and you’ll likely hear a pretty convincing testimonial that it’s true.

Tuesday is National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day, a day created to raise awareness for the millions of animals waiting for their forever homes in shelters across the country.

We spoke with Cindy Kelly, who is the director of communication and development for the Bucks County SPCA in suburban Philadelphia about the important things anyone looking to adopt a shelter pet should consider.
