We rescued our dog from the Madras Humane Society. Best dog ever.

We rescued both of our dogs. Our boy was found in Southern Oregon in the middle of a busy highway in a box with his brother as puppies. Our girl was being fostered after being rescued from a bad home.

My dog was adopted from Central Oregon Humane Society in 2005. I'll always adopt.

I always prefer to save a life by adopting from a shelter. Please don't breed or buy while shelter pets die.

I think we need to adopt our own animals here in USA. Cant believe there are well meaning individuals bringing in more unwanted animals into USA from out of country though!!!

Adopt from US or world-you save a life either way-Why put down someone who is doing a good thing while taking a world view.

I've got 1 of each. The oldest is the pedigree, so I will likely replace her with another just like her. My youngest is from a SoCal kill shelter and is a llasa apso/poodle mix. Both are so precious!

3-4 million dogs & cats in the U.S. are euthanized each year because there aren't enough homes. I have and always will adopt. My 3 dogs are all rescues and they are the best!

Have always adopted for the last 35+ years and have always been more than satisfied with the results. Always Chows which have a bad reputation and never was disappointed after initial intro and train

I’ve done both. Had good dogs both ways. I have purebreds now, but I did look at adopting first.

3 of our 4 dogs are adopted, but my youngest is from a breeder. I wanted a specific breed, with a good prey drive for rodents and got one from Texas. I waited a long time to find just the right dog.

I'll go with "no" on this one. If there's insurance on the house, the insurer could do that. Ditto for any mortgage holder. If neither applies, I don't think we should try to regulate stupidity.

"To"? Anyone who can't spell a three letter word is unpersuasive.

Grew up in the Midwest. The local storms are wimpy compared to those!

I love thunder and lightening! Don't like the fires though but do like the rain. Always on the front porch with my granddaughter whenever a thunder storm rolls in
