Pets are a life-long commitment - one that lasts the span of their lifetime. People who aren't ready to make that commitment shouldn't get a pet.

They should also consider their age and the age of the pet in making an adoption decision. One of the most likely to be euthanized category of pets in shelters today are animals that have been surrendered because their companion human has died or been hospitalized.

Sure do. I have 5 girls and one boy. The oldest girl is human. 3 are feline, and one is canine. The boy is canine.

Yes! My dog is just like having a child.
I feed him, play with him, walk him, take him to Dr. Appointments, talk to him, and the list goes on and on.
