Pets can be great stress relievers and companions, but there are several important questions to consider before you make the decision to adopt:
- Are you able to provide for a pet financially?
Do you have the financial means to provide food, licensing, and veterinary care?
- Are you prepared for the long-term commitment?
You might be home to care for all your pets’ needs now, but will this still be the case if and when the situation changes?
- Are you physically able to provide for a pet?
Do you have the ability to give your dog the physical activity it needs? Do you have a yard or nearby park where you can practice physical distancing while providing for your pet?
If you have answered yes to all these questions, your next step is to find a pet that’s right for you and your family.
