Supporting “Less-Adoptable” Pets

October 04, 2010, 9:23pm posted by

As a culture we talk a lot about striving toward equality by reducing discrimination and prejudice within our society. But when it comes to pets, those loveable creatures whom many of us consider to be members of our own families, we do not always apply the same principles.

Petfinder.com, the largest online database of adoptable pets, points out that all too often people will visit an animal shelter in search of a puppy, kitten, or other animal that is a preferred breed or color; nearly always bypassing those animals that are older, darker in coloring or that have special needs. These pets are deemed “less-adoptable” not because they wouldn’t make great additions to a family or would love you any less, but because they have certain physical features that make them less desirable.
