What to Consider Before Adopting a Pet
It can happen to the best of us. You see a cute, tiger-striped kitten with white paws and green eyes, just begging for attention. Or maybe it’s a gorgeous Labrador mix whose tail seems to be wagging just for you. You take one look, and the next thing you know, you’re walking down the pet food aisle at the supermarket.
Adopting from an Animal Shelter
Animal shelters are your best source when looking for a pet. Not only do they have a great selection of adult animals for adoption, but they also have kittens and puppies, even purebred animals. In fact, on average, purebreds account for about 25% to 30% of a shelter’s dog population.
What the Adoption Donation covers…
Each animal left at the Humane Society is given state-of-the-art preventive care. Cats and kittens are vaccinated with a booster vaccine that protects them from harmful viruses. They are also given a Treatment that protects them against heartworm disease (yes! cats can get heartworm disease), roundworms, hookworms, fleas and ear mites.
