"Free puppies" and "free kittens" ads are just about every where you look, and over the next few months, they will become more and more common. It seems like just about everyone you know has a kitten or a puppy who needs a home.
Why in the world would you want to go to a Petsmart Charities National Adoption Event like the one scheduled for the weekend of May 2-4, 2014? After all, you can get a pet "free" from many different places. Why spend money for one?
Or if you want to buy a purebred dog or cat, why should you adopt from a rescue group at an adoption event instead of the person selling that breed on Craigslist or some other classifieds site?
Here are nine great reasons to adopt through an organized rescue group at these events.
Note: Check tomorrow for a list of rescue groups who will have pets available for adoption at the Petsmarts in upstate South Carolina.
