Tips
for adopting a pet:
  • Research & decide what sort of pet, breed, size, age & gender you want, before you look.
  • Try to stick to your decisions & be patient if the right one is not available.
  • Only adopt a healthy animal.
  • Get information about the animal’s background & temperament.
  • Spend as much time as possible with the pet before adoption.
  • If possible introduce it to all members of the household before adoption.
  • Shelters SHOULD do a home check &/or question you about your home & how the animal will be treated.
