One thing that the majority of people can agree on is their love for puppies. For some reason, seeing a puppy seems to invoke a series of uncontrollable baby noises, “aw’s” and even tears for the extreme puppy enthusiast. However, seeing a ton of adorable puppies on a daily basis is, unfortunately, not a reality for everyone. However, one way to get your much needed fix of puppy cuteness is by visiting your local pet shop or humane society. At these locations, even if you do not intend on buying a dog, you are still encouraged to play with any and all of the puppies that you choose.
There is sort of a stigma surrounding these sorts of pet shops and many people advocate solely buying rescue dogs or puppies that were not bred in puppy mills to be sold in these stores. However, regardless of your thoughts about where to buy a dog from, your moral compass will in no way be harmed by visiting these stores to play with the adorable little puppies, even if they were bred at a puppy mill. That wasn’t their choice and the least you can do is give them some love by playing with them. These stores are great for finding a ton of cute pups to play with because there are so many to choose from. You can even play with as many puppies as you choose!
Going to an animal shelter or humane society is also a great option if you want to play with some furry friends. Many animals in these shelters are animals that have been in previously neglective or abusive environments. However, many times all these animals need to become happy and friendly pets is to experience positive human interaction. By going to play with puppies and dogs at animal shelters, you are able to make yourself happy by getting your fill of playing with fluffy puppies while simultaneously improving these shelter animals’ quality of life.
