BEFORE YOU ADOPTů

Are you thinking of adopting a dog or cat? Owning a pet can be a lot of fun and very rewarding, but it is also time-consuming and somewhat costly. Here are some things to think about before you adopt:

 

SPECIAL NOTE ON ADOPTING PUPPIES AND KITTENS

If you are considering adopting a puppy or kitten, you should recognize that they need a lot of attention. They are very active and inquisitive and tend to get lonely without someone to play with. If your pet will be alone for several hours throughout the day, you should consider adopting an adult dog or cat or perhaps 2 kittens. Don't forget that a dog/puppy needs to go outside several times a day, so someone must be there periodically throughout the day to make sure your dog has a potty break.
