Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet Week

All animals deserve love and appreciation. From the furry to the scaly, every animal wants to be cared for and have a place to call home. Unfortunately, some pets consistently miss out on being adopted. There are misconceptions about some animals and, other people just think are too much work. Well, we at 2 Paws Up Inc. think every animal deserves a good home. So we’re here to highlight some of the most underappreciated animals.


Older Pets


Humans and pets alike tend to go underappreciated in their senior years. People are afraid they will get sick. But older pets have a lot to offer. They are well-behaved. Younger animals have the energy of several people. If you want someone to just keep you company after a long day, a senior pet is right for you. You won’t have to worry about anything getting knocked over.


Disabled Pets


Just like older animals, disabled pets get overlooked. People are afraid of high medical bills and illness. Many disabled pets, however, don’t even show signs of their disability. Animals are amazingly resilient. Blind and deaf pets find ways to get around and live a happy life. There is also plenty of new adaptive equipment for animals with mobility problems. Choosing to love a disabled pet will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.


Black Dogs and Cats


For some strange reason, black dogs and cats get adopted less. There is absolutely no reason a black dog or cat can’t be just as good as any other. Plus, you will have a living and loving Halloween decoration. Just be sure they stay an inside decoration, especially on Halloween night.


Bad Reputation Breeds


There are a few breeds of dogs who have an undeserved bad reputation. Pit Bulls, Dobermans, even German Shepherds are victims of a lot of misinformation. The fact is that a dog will act the way that it is taught to. If a dog is aggressive, it is because they have been taught to, or they had a traumatic experience. These beautiful canines DO NOT deserve to suffer because of man’s bad behavior.


Big Dogs


Some people are reluctant to adopt big animals. If you live in a small apartment, they are not the best choice for you. Other than that, big dogs are about the same as smaller ones, often more docile. The biggest problem with a big dog is that they always think they are a lap baby, and it’s a fun problem to have. Plus, all they have to do is bark to scare away any would-be criminals.


2 Paws Up Inc. hopes that you will give these wonderful animals consideration the next time you need a new friend. Remember, all animals deserve love and want to be loved. So change the life of one of these animals and spread the word so we can clear the shelters!
