Adopt an adult pet.
There are a lot of excellent reasons to adopt an adult dog or cat. These pets often find themselves homeless because an owner has passed away, gotten a divorce, or lost a job and cannot care for a pet any longer. Adult dogs are often housebroken, won't wake you in the middle of the night to play, and have outgrown the desire to shred your couch cushions or munch on your shoes. Adult cats are usually trained to use a litter box, are not destructive, and would rather curl up in your lap than climb your drapes. APL always has a great group of adults, both at our shelter and in foster homes. Please consider adopting one of them.
