Before You Adopt
Adopting a new pet is a big decision. Before selecting an animal, it’s important to think about the commitment and what would be a good fit for your family and lifestyle.
Some questions you can ask yourself about adopting a pet and deciding what type of pet to add to your family:
- Are all family members on-board with the adoption decision?
- Do you have adequate time to spend with and care for a cat or dog, including time for training, exercising and playing?
- Can you make the financial commitment to care for a cat or dog with food, vaccinations, routine veterinary care and veterinary care for major issues should they arise?
- Are you active and looking for an energetic dog to accompany you on adventures or does having a cat or dog curling up on your lap sound ideal?
