Adopt, don’t shop. We hear the phrase all the time as it’s spread around to help bring awareness to animals overflowing shelters across the country awaiting eventual euthanasia. And the only way to stop cruel puppy mills is to stop lining their pockets. As the video says, “Better than buying a life is saving one.”
Without telling anyone, this Brazilian pet store decided to replace all of its animals with shelter animals for just one day. Associacao Quatro Patinhas, meaning Association Four Paws, set out to change people’s perception of shelter animals with the experiment, and the customers’ reactions just about say it all.
What a wonderful idea and way to show that there’s no difference between purebred dogs and shelter dogs. They all love just the same! 🙂
