Adoption Considerations

"Select" is defined in the dictionary by such phrases as "a preferred choice" or "carefully chosen." Selecting the family pet should be a well-researched and carefully thought-out activity. Assessing your current lifestyle and living situation, as well as determining the type of pet that is most suitable for you and your family, can go long strides to finding the right match.


A pet is a big commitment. You will be responsible for providing a pet with nutritious food, grooming, exercise, training, and medical care for the rest of his or her life. Dogs typically live to be 10-15 years old, while cats can live up to 20 years of age.


Are you and your family willing to make a commitment to a new four-legged family member in sickness and in health, for richer or for poorer, for as long as the pet shall live?
