Ready to Adopt?

Before you decide to adopt an animal, make sure you and your family are ready for this new responsibility. Consider the following questions:

  • Why do I want a pet? Adopting a pet takes time, energy and resources. Pets can be with you for 10, 15 or even 20 years. Am I ready for this commitment?
  • Can I afford to have a pet? Do I have money saved for medical emergencies? Do I have money to purchase the items a new pet will need? Food, toys, veterinary care and grooming can cost between $50 and $200 a month depending on the kind of pet you adopt.
  • How much time do I have to dedicate to a pet, including regular exercise, grooming, socializing, and feeding?
  • Will a pet work with my schedule? How many hours a week do I work? How many hours do I spend socializing or on other non-work related activities? Dogs, especially puppies, should not be left alone or crated for more than 8 hours at a time.
  • What kind of animal or breed will fit my lifestyle? Am I active or inactive? Do I live in a house with a yard or a condominium?
  • Am I ready to handle pet ‘messes’ and other potential behavior issues (chewing, counter ‘surfing’, barking)? Do I have the time to properly train my pet?
  • If there are children in the home, what kind of breed is best with children? Does this pet have a proven track record with children?
  • Does anyone in my home have pet allergies?
  • If I am a renter, does my lease allow pets and are there size limitations?
