Excellent news. Now, if only we can get humans to apply the principle of "adopt, don't shop" to other humans...

(Well, I suppose in that case it would be "adopt, don't breed", but you get the idea.)

Best of luck doing so- seriously. Humans (sadly) easily overlook the fact that millions of cats and dogs are put to sleep in shelters in this country every year, if the accessory pet they want is purchase-only.

“Adopt, don’t shop” would still be kinda applicable in parts of the world where human trafficking and outright slavery remain common

The adoption market has a shortage of babies.

Plenty of teenagers with mental health issues though.
