Adoption Guidelines

Are you ready?

Below are just a few questions to consider before adopting:

Do you have time for a pet? Pets need attention just like a job or a family.
Do you have time everyday to tend to your pet's needs?
Have you done research about the pet?
Know what to expect before you bring a pet home (Grooming needs, energy levels, behaviors).
Are you financially stable for a pet?
Toys, food, grooming and vet bills really add up.
Are you ready to commit to the pet for the remainder of his life?
Expect a dog to live 10-15 years and a cat 15-20 years.
