Some think of her as being all about fashion, but Lauren Conrad is also all about rescuing animals.

Today, the former “Hills” star posted her thoughts on the perfect time to get an animal, in addition to the best options for welcoming a pet home. Conrad would know, especially since she’s the proud owner of two adorable pups, Chloe and Fitz.

For her, it’s all about adopting — not buying from a breeder. She writes, “I highly recommend adopting a pet over buying one from a breeder. There is no greater feeling than rescuing an animal. There are so many sweet pups sitting in shelters right now, just waiting for their forever homes. Not only will you find your new best friend, but you’ll also save a life. I honestly can’t imagine my life without Chloe and Fitz.”

In her opinion, it’s also important to make sure “you’re ready to make the commitment,” because it’s definitely a big one.

So, if you’re ready to take the pet plunge, then make sure to take Conrad’s advice and head to your local shelter.
