All summer I’ve been looking into getting a puppy. I’ve been doing a bunch of research and I figured I should share that info.
I’ve wanted a puppy because not only are they adorable, but I’ve also been wanting the companionship. As most people know, therapy dogs and service dogs are great for people who need support and on my campus, we are allowed to have one as long as we fill out some forms.
Now, the first step is finding places to adopt a pet. Most places in NYC have a $60-$75 charge to get your pet with all of their shots and ensuring that your pet is healthy.
That being said, here are a few locations in N

Check out their sites because some locations show which puppies are up for adoption online. Please don’t be too stubborn about picking up a pit bull. You could go into any of these locations and find a pit. If you raise a pit bull with love, it will show you love in return. They’re not mean or violent dogs. They are sweet little pups. Shit, chihuahuas could be little assholes. Stay open-minded and make sure you have enough money and time to give your pup the healthy lifestyle they deserve.
My cousin has an Instagram with great tips for dog owners. I think her insta is very helpful, especially for new dog owners. @millennialdogmom
