How to adopt a pet.
The first step on the road to pet ownership is to ask yourself some tough questions: Why do you want a pet? Can you afford food & vet care? Are you prepared to take care of the animal every day for their entire life?
1. First consider adoption from a shelter or an animal rescue group.
2. Or, find a responsible breeder and visit their premises.
3. Don’t be fooled by common claims made by pet stores when pushing their animals.
4. Don’t be swayed by a great website or ad. Just because a website says great things about their “home raised” or “family raised” pets doesn’t make it true.
