What To Consider Before Adopting A Pet

  • You need to make a real commitment to care for your pet for its entire life.
  • Verify in advance that you’re allowed to keep a pet where you live.
  • Never adopt a pet on a whim or because you feel it’s love-at-first-sight
  • Provide sufficient exercise and stimulation during the first few weeks
  • Make any necessary modifications to your yard and fence, if you have one, to provide for your pet’s safety
