Question by amber n. [KCwas hur!]: What’s the difference between buying a dog and adopting a dog?
I recently saw a PETA Ad saying “Adopt, Don’t Buy; Buying Kills Dogs”. I then went to my local pet shelter and said “adopt a dog”, but it was with a price – 0. What’s the difference between buying or adopting one?

Answer by Yawn
Buying is from a pet store(not good) or breeder(okay if breeder is reputable). Adopting is from a shelter or rescue and may come with a small fee that is generally less then what the shelter spent caring for the dog.
