Question
Hello Shelia,

I am writing an article for my class about people rescuing pets instead of buying them. I was wondering if you could tell me what people can expect when adopting a rescue dog? And why you should adopt instead of buying? And lastly what are the benefits to adopting?

Thank you so much for your help!

Answer
Hi! I think it's great that you are doing this. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I'm going to refer you to a couple of articles I've written which will answer your questions.
