Make sure you can care for the animal, don't get one just to say you have an animal in your home.

Perfect questions. The allegies issue is a big reason for animal return. We have gotten to the point in my shelter is to request a child who never had a pet, have an allergy test before an adoption. We have lost many potential adoptees, we also had to take back 2 a month.

I would like to adopt them all if I had the space and if it was not so paintfull to loose them one day, they are just like your babies and parents are not supposed to loose their child.. what's more many people don't understand this pain. Thanks for sharing
