You need to think about costs, and how the pet will fit in with your family and lifestyle. Please read advice on choosing a pet, and our general information about cats and dogs.

Would you like to Adopt a Pet?
Animal adoption is a wonderful option that should be considered for many reasons. Animal shelters are overwhelmed, under-resourced and they have beautiful animals that just want a safe home and to be loved. Assumptions about shelter animals are also often incorrect. Rescue Dogs, for example, are not necessarily troublesome. They may have been surrendered because of financial reasons, illness or having to move. See more reasons to adopt and find your local pet rescue group - they might just have the pet of your dreams.
