I would rather take in a stray rather than buy in pet shops.these strays are neglected.they once had a family who loved them,but for some reason abandoned them.I would rather spend on the things the dog/cats needs,like food,toys,and vet check-ups.if I have a huge house and a hug yard,you will see a lot of dogs running around,and they are all strays.I've read that strays are much sweeter than those bought from pet shops.they are more thankful for giving them a chance to live and love.

I guess you can say that I already did. About 4 years back i was heading out to a friend of mines and as I was headed up the hill two dogs came running from the side of the road and I almost hit them so i pulled over to get them off the road and they ended up jumping in my car and didn't want to leave so I went ahead and took them over to my friends and then tried looking for the original owners but had no luck so I ended up keeping one dog and she ended up keeping the other. She has been a great dog, she is a good listener and great with the kids especially my daughter who just loves to lay and paw all over her all the time. We are not allowed any more pets but if I had a place where I could keep more pets I would most definitely take in more strays..

I to love animals but mostly dogs . I do not like an animal to go hungry so I do feed them something if I can. I really do not want to keep them but maybe find them a home. It cost alot to feed them. I have had strays before . I try not to take them in but only if I had no choice.

My first baby was actually a stray to start with. We found her along with the mother and the other eight puppies. I couldn't stand to part with Michela, but all of her siblings and the mother ended up at the pound. Again, if I were to come across a stray, I would more than likely take it in. I am an animal lover and both of my children are animal lovers. My daughter even wants to be a vet when she grows up, so she is constantly trying to bring strays into the house.

No I wouldn't. We have a dog and it affects my breathing so I wouldn't want another & my husband has an allergy to cats. If I lived alone, I'd take the cat
