Why should you adopt and not shop?

As part of celebrating our coming “Adopt, don’t shop” campaignevent, we at Pawparazzi are happy to share awareness and share responsibilityin adopting pets rather than paying hundreds of bucks on them. This blog postis here to celebrate each and every life on Earth.

Givingthe pure souls another chance to live

It is indescribable to sleep at night knowing that you’ve helped in saving a life from imminent and a lonely death. In numbers there are 2.7 million dogs and cats that are put down annually because they can’t find a loving home which can protect them and love them. By opting for adopting pet you contribute to saving on animal from this suffering. So you tell yourself, how good does this feel?

Avoidaccidents

We can’t deny the joy of adopting a young kitten or puppy, it is surely irresistible to hold the little thing in your arms and play withthem all day long but we can’t also deny the responsibility they come with it, and the smelly and messy accidents that they could cause around the house. However, when you choose to adopt a young trained pet from a shelter you canspare yourself this kind of pain.

Don’t condoneto unethical breeding

Not all breeders love their animals and take care of them, there are evil breeders out there who take advantage of the weak creatures and make a huge sum of money off their backs. We are not here to support such scammers and abusers and instead are on full board for loving and safe shelters.

Your walletwill thank you

If you have no previous experience in the pet industry then you must know that new pets from breeders have an insane price tag on them because it is considered as easy money. Shelters and adoption centers charge a modest affordable fee on adopting the animals which includes the veterinarian and sterilization costs.

 On this note we end this post by reminding you to check out Pawparazzi’s adoption fair which is happening on the 20th of November from 5 to 7pm and take home your life long best-friend with you. Join us in the most exciting event of the year!Visit our website for more information

World’s smartestpet ID tag

We can all agree that our pet’s safety and protection comes at the highest levels of our concern, the microchips don’t help in decreasing the worries and concerns because if it happens and you lose your pet, it is almost impossible being able to identify the pet’s whereabouts when they’re not in close contact. DOTTPet is the latest non-invasive technology which can maximize the chances of you finding your pet using an application paired with the tag. DOTTPet will also connect your app with other pets in the area and help protect the entire neighborhood.

  • iFetch

A lazy dog owner’s best friend

We all can agree that with Dubai’s lifestyle it doesn’t give you the time you need to take your dog outside to play fetch and all other sorts of games. That’s what iFetch here to do; the job for you.  All you have to do is to just train your dog how to use the iFtech by dropping the ball in it and start playing. It comes with a relatively higher price tag of $115, but it will definitely ensure you convenience and the peace of mind.

FroBo

We picked this “cool” product because we know the struggle of parenting a dog in Dubai during the summer, the equation couldn’t get worse. With the immense melting heat your pet dog will definitely enjoy an iced water treat that won’t melt off the second it’s out from the freezer using a non-toxic gel insert which won’t melt and keep your doggie cool and fresh directly from FroBo.

  • Cedarcide

Non-chemical based flea repellant

Every pet owners would prefer not putting a chemically evasive product on their pet’s body to fight fleas and ticks and Cedarcide is your go-to option, as it is naturally sourced insecticide and repellent. It’s a great product to use before sending off your pet outside to play at a park or to go for a walk and with a plus point of smelling great!

  • Kibblepet waterless shampoo

This product is not exactly a dry shampoo dog version but more of a spray that you can spray on top of your dog’s coat and be wiped out very easily with a towel.
