Great headline – ‘Puppy is a choice for life’

This headline appeared on the Inner West Courier website (out of Australia) on Monday. I really like the “choice for life” statement, whether it’s a puppy or in the case of any pet one might bring into the family.

Danielle Nelson of the Animal Welfare League is quoted in the story as noting summer is also a good time for families to adopt, because kids are home from school and the shelters are often, sadly, full at this time of year.

“I think it was nice to give an animal a second chance and know that we saved a life,” she said in the article.

And near the end we have this – “” Many pets at rescue organisations have personality tests so people know what kind of temperament and home the animal can live in.””

Good point for the writer to make. Bravo. It is a myth that families do not know what they are getting in adopting a homeless pet.
