Please consider adopting a pet
Thousands of animals are abandoned and euthanased every year. Don't make the mistake of assuming that pets that are offered for adoption are troublesome. Sometimes people are moving, or just feel they have "bitten off more than they can chew", and find they are not able to look after the pet properly. Sometimes it's financial reasons.
Please search our adoption pages to see if you can find your perfect pet there. You can also search our database for animal shelters near you, or your local pound. Shelters will always let you know if there are any particular issues with a pet, and most just need good care and lots of love. Also keep in mind that adopting an adult rather than a very young animal can be a lot less work and have great benefits. Adult dogs for example should be toilet trained, don't need as much company, can be well trained, and have outgrown all that chewing! See more information about animal shelters here.
