Meet Vixen, our December Pet of the Month! Vixen is a 13 year old “Redland Rescue” who hit the jackpot with her forever family.
Every December, animal advocates warn the public of the likelihood of pets purchased as gifts being surrendered to shelters in January. But what about adopted pets like Vixen?
An informal study by the ASPCA suggests that adopted holiday pets are bucking the post-holiday trends. Unlike their purchased peers, adopted pets that are given as gifts have very low chances of being surrendered when the holiday season ends.
If you’re thinking of bringing home a pet for the holidays, consider a trip to a shelter or rescue organization to find that special soul. The greatest gift you can give a pet in need is a forever home - just ask Vixen!
Congratulations, Vixen and tell all your friends - you’re our Pet of the Month!
