Responsible Ownership

Things to Consider Before You Adopt

Following are some items that we feel you should take into consideration before you adopt a pet. These issues are not meant to discourage you, but to prepare you and help your pet receive the best home it deserves. 

Consider This… 
  • Will someone be able to care for the animal at all times? Even during unexpected hours?
  • Will you be able to provide loving affection to your pet? Cats and dogs are sociable by nature and they deserve the same treatment in return.
  • Can you provide a proper environment for your pet? A good, warm and dry structure to live in and the proper fencing to ensure that the animal will stay on your property?
  • Can you afford the food, entertainment, medical care and other special needs that your pet will require?
