It is very important that you choose your pet carefully and fortunately, their Adoption Counselors are available to help you make the best decision.

There are many things to consider such as:
  • Are you ready to make a commitment to a pet for its entire life?
  • Is your home and yard large enough to accommodate a pet?
  • Are you financially prepared for the costs of caring for a pet?
