Adopting Dogs and Cats
Making the decision to adopt a dog or cat is a really big responsibility and it is a great idea to be prepared. A lot of great animal shelters, rescue organizations and the animal welfare websites as well as Veternarians can really provide a lot of information to help you choose just the right pet for your family.
Choosing whether you want to adopt a kitten or puppy, a pet a little older than a baby or a wonderful senior dog or cat just waiting for their furever home is a big decision. Different cat and dog breeds have different personalities and needs, just as your family does.
I am also a huge fan of the wonderful pet organizations who shelter their animals with foster families, they are so loved and the foster pet care giver can really tell you about each pet. Whether they get along with children, other dogs and cats and really guide you so that your new loving family member is as happy as you are.
