Want A Pet? Please Adopt

What is this plea doing in a blog mostly concerned with environmental issues?

Well, there's the environmental cost of breeding ever more animals. There's also the issue of supporting breeders and pet stores that don't give enough attention to the welfare of the animals.

You could look for an animal at the ASPCA or at Petfinder. Or just go to your local animal shelter.

And once you have your new pet, consider environmentally friendly food and other products.
