What is Option for Adoption?
Option for Adoption is a Webkinz Insider event that happens all month of August. This Month, August 2011, is WI's first annual option for adoption month. There are any domestic animals without homes so every year in August, to top off the summer, places like Petco, Petsmart, animal shelters, Humane Society, and many other places try to give each and every domestic pet a home so thousands of families around the United States (and Canada!) can save a pet and have it for the upcoming holiday season. Each year about 10,000 pets are adopted, and over 1,000 of those pets are adopted in August because of the low prices and big events going on everyday in August to inspire Adoption month. Adoption is an ongoing, rewarding experience and should be inspired throughout WI.
Some of you may be thinking, "why should I care?" "Im not really into all this animal stuff". This Event is webkinz inspired and a variety of members no matter what their interest is should participate. WEBKINZ IS 100% BASED ON ANIMALS. The bottom line of Webkinz is domestic pets. The first ever released pets include the cheeky cat, cheeky dog, black and white cat, and the yellow and black lab. Later on Webkinz started adding wildlife and fantasy animals to their collection. You are a WI member because of webkinz, right? Webkinz's whole plot is animal based so most of you may definatly find your place in this event.

How You Can Help Help and support are highly appreciated. This way awareness can be spread and more people can be inspired to adopt an animals this August.
Write in the color PURPLE. Purple is the official animal adoption color. This symbolizes our movement and can spread the word from post to post!
Use an avatar or signature. Below are sets of donated avatar and signatures that are open for public use. When you use one of these, the inspiration will be ongoing! We ask if you please do not give credit, we would rather have that space used for links and such.
Create a Link. When you do this, with each and every post people can see your accomplishment and support. They may even click the link and join us!
Visit a pet store. Every weekend in August you may visit a local petco or petsmart and say, wow, theres a lot of pets here! Thats because they are trying to 'empty the shelter' this month! Visit somewhere on the weekend. You dont have to adopt to help. Just a simple, 'do you need help with handling these pets?' or 'Would you like me to come to the shelter and help make flyers' is amazing!
Visit a shelter. This is only reccomended for people 12 and older. Its safer that way and some places require you to be a certain age to come in and help. You can help make adoption flyers, put up posters around the shelter inspiring adoption, or even take a look at the animals!
Talk to your parents about adoption. This month of august adoption fees will be much less inexpensive. My local shelter has dropped the rescue prices this month from $150 to $17. Just by bringing home one pet you are making a decison that will be an ongoing reward every day. Pets should only cost less than $50 a month (food, toys, etc), so its affordable and a big option.
Adopt a pet. This is really the bottom line of Adopt a Pet Month.
Adopt a webkinz. This event is related to webkinz and webkinz inspired. Please read post one.
Saving a life. If you asked every living creature on earth where they would like to live, would you think they would say a shelter? Nope. Every living thing needs a natural habitat or a home to meet their needs. The animals in a shelter cannot have their needs met and get little attention because there are so many pets there. When you bring a pet home, they will be healthier and happier. Their life will be saved and the rest of their new, happy life will be in your hands!
Making room. When you bring home an adopted pet you are making more room for more animals to come in. This prevents overcrowding and animals having to be put down.
Phsycological. Studies show that pet owners are more healthy mentally. Having a pet stimulates the brain, promotes excercise, prevents loneliness, and studies show that owning a pet makes humans 20% less prone to depression.
Responsibility. This is a good one for children. Having a pet teaches kids about responsibility early in life. This can benefit their intelligence and responsibility traits in the future.
