 Are You Ready To Adopt A Pet?

1.  Why do you want a pet?  Adopting a pet just because it is cute or because your kids really want a puppy usually ends up being a mistake.  Don’t forget that pets may be with you 10, 15, even 20 years.  Adopting a pet is a big decision as dogs and cats are living beings that require lots of time, money and commitment.  Pet ownership can be rewarding, but only if you think through your decision first.

2.  Do you have time for a pet?  Dogs and cats cannot be ignored just because you are tired or busy.  They require food, water, exercise, care and companionship every day of every year.  There must be someone in your household to provide meals and exercise on a regular basis.  Dogs, for example, should be walked at least twice a day.  Also, dogs may need housebreaking, which takes patience and time.

3.  Can you afford a pet?  The monetary costs of pet ownership can be quite high.  Licenses, training classes, vaccinations, nutritious quality food, veterinary care, grooming, toys, litter, food, heartworm preventative and other expenses add up quickly.  Before you bring your pet home, you will need most of the following: a carrier, a crate, toys, litter, leash, collar, ID tags, food, bowls and bedding.

4.  Are you prepared to deal with special problems only a pet can cause?  Fleas, scratched-up furniture, accidents and unexpected medical emergencies are unfortunate but common aspects of pet ownership.

5.  Can you have a pet where you live?  Many rental communities don’t allow pets or have specific restrictions.  Make sure you know what they are before you bring a companion animal home.

6.  Is it a good time for you to adopt a pet?  If you have kids under six years old, you might consider waiting a few years before you adopt.  Problem-free pet ownership requires children who are mature enough to be responsible.  If you are a student, travel often, or moving soon, waiting until you settle down is a wise choice.

7.  Are your living arrangements suitable for the animal you have in mind?  Adopting a large or energetic dog to share your small apartment is not a good idea since he likely won’t have enough space to move around in, and giving him enough exercise will require quite a bit of activity on your part.  Choose an animal that will be comfortable in your surroundings.

8.  Are you prepared to give your pet proper shelter?  Dogs and cats are called house pets for a reason - inside the house is where they belong.  A fenced yard is important to have, especially for large and active dogs, but dogs should never be left outside alone for long periods of time.  And cats should always remain indoors.  Pets crave and require companionship and they should stay inside with the family whenever possible.

9.  Will you be a responsible pet owner?  Having your pet spayed or neutered, obeying community leash and licensing laws and keeping identification tags on your pets are all part of being a responsible pet owner.  A collar and a tag are a lost pet’s ticket home.  Pet tags should include the rabies license number, your address, and phone number.  Of course, giving your pet love, companionship, exercise, a healthy diet and regular veterinary care are other essentials.  When you adopt a pet, you are making a commitment to care for the animal for his or her lifetime.

10.  Do you agree to follow-up adoption communication?  The Humane Society of Lewisville requests 48 hour and 2 week updates for the pet you adopt to ensure you both have a healthy, happy start to a long life together!
