A third (34%) of new dogs are adopted from pet shelters or rescue sources. Similarly, threeA out of ten cats are adopted from pet shelters or rescue sources. For both dogs and cats, pet shelters and rescue sources are theA leading single method of acquisition.Primary motivations for adopting a new dog or cat include:

love of dogs or cats



companionship for themselves or for others in the household



companionship for other pets in the household



for personal mental health/stress reduction benefits



companionship for the sake of children in the household (though this tendency is notably more important in households adopting dogs versus households adopting cats).

When it comes to adding a new dog to the home, the size of the dog matters more than just about any other factor. Packaged Facts found that the majority of newly adopted dogs are medium-size or smaller.
