Do you want to adopt a puppy? Follow these accounts in Mexico


Changing a life is in your hands (and we are sure that a puppy will also change yours). Responsible adoption is one of the greatest acts of love and in Mexico, there are more than 23 million dogs, of which 70% are on the streets and we are the first place in Latin America with the largest population of stray dogs.

“Human beings are experts at avoiding confronting uncomfortable truths. We don’t want to know where the food we eat or the animals we buy comes from, because we know that there is great suffering behind it ”, explains Ryan Cosgaya, founder of Animal Shepherd, who invites us to avoid buying in breeders, pet stores and better adopting.

When you buy a dog or cat you enter a cycle of abuse that never ends, you also promote the exploitation of animals, especially females, because their fertility is exploited for entire days … cycle after cycle.

Remember that adopting a puppy is a great responsibility, you must educate him, feed him, play with him, take him to the vet and give him lots of love. Once you are completely convinced that you have one more member in your family, research the adoption requirements. Remember that for your dogs you are their whole world.
