Even though kill shelters euthanize thousands of cats and dogs every month and puppy mills treat the animals like they’re merchandise, still many people would rather spend their money and buy a pet in a pet store than adopt. Is it because pure-bred animals are more beautiful than the mutts? This Brazilian rescue service decided to find out.
They went to this pet shop, replaced all of their cats and dogs with animals from the local shelter and set up a hidden camera to capture the buyers’ reactions. What do you think happened?
Don’t shop. ADOPT.
