1. Every CLV Group Community is Pet Friendly
In case you didn’t already know, every CLV Group community is pet friendly! We understand that your pet is simply part of the family, which means you can bring your pet along when you move-in or you can adopt one while living in your CLV Group home.
2. Give an Animal a Home it Deserves
Every animal has the desire to play, to love, and to be loved. There is a stigma that shelter pets are bad, not trained or have health issues, when in fact most are healthy, loving pets that wind up there from human actions such as a move or allergies. Adopting a pet gives an animal a home that it deserves.
3. Money Can’t Buy Happiness
I’m sure we have all heard the saying “money can’t buy happiness” at some point in our lives. It’s true! Adopting a pet is significantly cheaper than buying a pet from a pet store or breeder but they can bring just as much joy into your life. Plus, adoption fees typically include up-to-date vaccinations, microchipping, and spaying/neutering.
4. Adopting Saves Lives
The sad truth is, some shelters are kill shelters, which means many animals never leave the shelter. By adopting an animal you give the gift of a second chance and a forever home. Not only do you change the life of the animal you adopt, but you change the lives of others by making room for other animals in the shelter that are in need of help.
5. Help End Inhumane Breeding
By supporting animal shelters you are taking a step towards ending inhumane breeding. As more people start to adopt rather than shop, the demand for breeding animals goes down and minimizes the need for inhumane breeding such as puppy mills.
6. The Right One for You
When you adopt a pet you have the ability to pick the pet that is perfect for you. Shelters carry a variety of breeds, with animals of various dispositions and age. It is a great way to pick an animal that matches your lifestyle.
