    Molly and Daisy came from breeders.

    Angel, Dillian and Mocha were adopted from the shelter.

    Piper was purchased at Petco and Pumpkin was a "rescue".

    Frankie was also a rescue and my mom got Phil, Percy, George, Bernie and Roy from a friend.

    All of mine came out of 'free' adds so I rescued them in a way. Nobody else would have taken them if we wouldn't have. They could have ended up on the streets or in a shelter.

    I do plan on adopting/rescuing all of my animals I have in the future

    I said pet store, breeder, and other. I got my mice, snake, and guinea pig at a pet store. I got Annabelle, my pug, from a breeder. Other was my cats and my rabbit. My cats came from my horseback riding instructor a couple of years ago and my rabbit was from a fair in New Hampshire.



    Thanks Devon (flamepony12) for the
    Sig!

    Every cat who has lived with me over the years has been rescued.

    The horses I had to pay for as no one seems to ever give a horse away.

    Corkscrew was originally adopted out of a shelter, then passed around to a few owners. The last owner no longer wanted him so I took him in.

    Tibby came from a shelter.

    Payson came from animal control.

    The rats all came from a pet store.

    Thanks for the great signature Kay!

    Cats were all rescues

    Guinea pigs were the result of my friends not wanting their pigs anymore

    Geico was given to me by my teacher

    Dogs...

    Shadow - My Aunt...not sure where she got her from, probably a byb

    Micki and Mini - BYBs

    Kyra - we became BYBs
    What we did was horrible, I wish I would have found PT earlier or tried harder to convince my parents that breeding Min was a bad idea...but its been 13 months since Ky has been a part of our life now...I really wish we wouldn't have done it! I feel like an outsider here and a huge hypocrit, I am always telling people to spay and neuter their dogs but then my parents go ahead and breed our own dog

    Jack - a shelter dog

    Ashley & Crossbone ("mini ACD")
    Living with my parent's: Jack (Lab/Beagle), Micki & Mini (JRTS)
    RIP Kyra: 07/11/04 - 11/3/12; Shadow: 4/2/96 - 3/17/08
