I've got no strong feeling on this topic, but here are some thoughts:
Adopting a dog or cat from an animal shelter is arguably good. You are saving the animal from an early death, and providing the animal with a happy life (we hope).
Certain dog breeds are so domesticated that they can't survive / thrive in the wild - we humans are obligated to take care of them.
Cats are able to survive on their own. Certain cats might be happier living freely, if given the chance to do so. To prevent overpopulation (in the absence of natural predators), cats should be spayed/neutered.
On the other hand, reptiles are non-domesticated animals. When you buy a reptile, you are likely buying it from a breeder, not from a shelter. Reptiles are probably happier on their own, in their natural habitat.
