In general, having a dog is not the most eco-friendly venture – you have to feed the dog meat; and the meat industry, as you may know, often wreaks havoc on the environment. Adopting a dog, however, is a different story. Animal shelters house dogs whom otherwise would be out on the street eating wild animals, competing with natural predators, and potentially transmitting disease. Take a dog off an animal shelter’s hands, and you’re doing the Earth and the community a favor. As if that weren’t enough, studies show that owning a dog makes you healthier and less likely to be overweight. Dogs also serve as trusty social ice-breakers.
