THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN ADOPTING

Your Schedule

Be realistic with how much time you have to give your pet.  Puppies and kittens can get lonely and may become destructive when left long periods of time alone.  Even adult dogs needs let out during the day.  Cats can entertain themselves for longer periods of time; but all pets need quality time with their pet parents.  

Children

In addition to providing children with a loving companion, adopting a pet is a great way to teach responsibility.  However, some pets, such as very young puppies and kittens, may not always be a good match for families with children under the age of six.  They may not be able to judge how roughly they are handling small pets.  Therefore, adult pets with patient personalities may be much better match for these families. 

Other Household Pets

We try to gather as much information about our adoptable pets likes and dislikes, especially when it comes to compatibility with other pets.  Some cats do not mind dogs, while other cats are terrified of dogs.  Some dogs do not do well with other dogs, yet some dogs thrive in homes with others.  If you are applying to adopt and you currently have other pets at home, we strongly encourage you to bring your pet with you to meet the potential new pet.  It is recommended an advance meeting can be extremely helpful in determining if a new addition to your family will be successful.
