Why And Who To Adopt
• Before, bringing a pet home, do some research.
• Don't pick a breed/species because it's "cute;" choose one that suits your family and your lifestyle. Better yet, adopt from an animal welfare organisation so that a trained adoption counselor may assist you in your decision-making process.
• Think about the costs associated with pet care - this will only increase as an animal ages. To adopt an animal requires commitment. You must have the time available for the feeding, grooming, daily training and exercise of your pet.
• Remember, cute little puppies and kittens eventually become dogs and cats. Pets can live for 15 years or more. and his/her behaviour is the direct result of the time and effort you put into training him or her.
