While I did get my dog from a reputable North Dakota breeder, I did adopt my cat from a shelter. Since day one with my sweet cat, I have wanted to adopt and love more shelter pets Unfortunately, I live in an apartment, so I am not really in a position to have many pets. But I do encourage anyone who wants a companion to consider adoption.
