Choose well and commit for life!
- Research the pros and cons of the type of pet you believe is right for you and/or your family. That should include time, money, possible allergies, as well as supplies needed.
- Think hard about whether a puppy or kitten is a choice you can manage. Puppies need lots of trips out as well as obedience training. Kittens can develop problematic behaviors if left alone for extended periods of time after getting them. There are many mature dogs and cats that need homes.
