Animals should not be bought INSTEAD of being adopted. The motion is constructed in such a way, that, to my understanding, the opponent prefers buying over adopting. To start this debate, I'll give you two reasons why animals should be adopted: it shows appreciation for a life instead of putting a price on it. Now I'll elaborate the second reason: Let[s imagine there are two people interested in the same animal. In case you support buying, you give the power to the one that has the money, not the one that wants to take care of an animal.
