Since there are homeless pets awaiting adoption, the Regina Humane Society strongly advocates that persons wishing to acquire a pet obtain one from a shelter or other source of homeless animals, such as breed rescues, rescue groups, or responsible owners looking to re-home animals in their care.
People who decide to acquire a specific breed of animal should locate a breed rescue group or a responsible breeder. (See Acquiring Companion Animals from a Responsible Source).
The Regina Humane Society does not support purchasing or otherwise acquiring animals from irresponsible breeders. (See Acquiring Companion Animals from a Responsible Source).
