Dogs shelter adoption can be a very rewarding experience. There are so many reasons why you should give a home to rescue dogs, instead of just buying a pup.

When you adopt a dog from a dogs’ shelter, you save a life because animals that live in shelters don’t have long life spans comparing to the ones who found a home.

Moreover, rescue animals will shower you with love. That’s why one bride decided to promote dog adoptions in the most ingenious way.

Cute dogs for adoption

A bride from Florida ditched flower bouquets for super cute shelter puppies on her wedding day. Andrea Ondina and Tina Krasinski wanted their guests to adopt a puppy as they are big advocates for animal adoption.

The couple decided that the best way to spread awareness about the cause that is so dear to their hearts is to somehow include shelter dogs in their wedding ceremony.

So they came out with the idea to swap traditional flower bouquets for adorable puppies. On the big day, Krasinski and her bridesmaids all carried their “pupquets.”

The pair borrowed 10 5-weeks-old puppies in total. Ondina commented:

The pups were very well behaved. Only had one accident on one of our Bridesmaid's hand.

Even though some of the dogs wined a little bit during the ceremony, the wedding went smoothly and some guests wanted a puppy to adopt.

How to adopt a dog from a shelter?

The most important factor you need to consider when you want to adopt a dog is your lifestyle. That will determine whether you should get a puppy that needs lots of exercise and attention or more senior dog that will be happy to sleep while you are away.

If you have children under 7, make sure you get a well-trained dog with “the right temperament” so it won’t bite the kids. And be patient, it may take time to find the right companion but it worth it when you are moved to tears at just how much you love them when they just snooze on the couch.
