Pet Adoption

Many statistics support that only about 30% of all animals stay in their original home. Due to owner illness or lifestyle changes, many pets end up homeless or in animal shelters. Help a healthy animal get a second chance at a "forever home" by adopting a new pet from your local animal shelter.

Pet Adoption

If you're looking for a pet to keep the long lonely hours at bay then you might want to consider pet adoption. Or if your kids want a pet and you canít say no to their beseeching little faces you can think about pet adoption. But before you do go and adopt a pet though you should be thoroughly aware of what youíre getting yourself into. By adopting a pet into your family youíre making the same commitment to it that you would make to any living thing that you were responsible for.

Some people even think of their pets as their children, and ultimately this is what it will amount to. Unless youíre looking at a cat for your pet adoption scheme, then be prepared to have to pander to its every needs and whims. And just like with a young child, youíll need to house train it! Youíll also need to teach your pet some obedience, especially if you get a dog.

Cats on the other hand are slightly more easier in that they're independent creatures who will only look at you and come to you when they need a free meal ticket. You also probably wonít be able to teach a cat to behave itself, and a special behavior school for cats probably doesnít even exist. That doesnít mean that youíll have to take cats off your pet adoption list. It just means that youíll need to be aware of the nature of your cat.

Birds are an easy choice for pet adoption but be warned, they can be noisy, especially some species who like to get up with the rising sun and sing you a lovingly screeched chorus at the top of their lungs. And they have no discrimination whether itís your weekend or not. Youíll also need to constantly clean out their cages, keep enough bird seed and water around, and remember to never let it loose in the house if you also went and got a cat when you were doing the whole pet adoption thing.

There are a few places that you can look into if you want to adopt a pet. These can be animal shelters, virtual pet adoption, animal rescue groups, pet stores, or perhaps even a neighbor or friend whoís moving away and canít take their pet with them. Then again, if you only want a trial run before you start your pet adoption process in earnest, pet sitting your friendís pet while theyíre away for a whole year might give you an insight of whatís needed from you. It wonít be the same as having your own pet, so if you think youíre ready go ahead with your pet adoption plans. Thereís nothing better than being the proud owner of a cute little puppy, or kitten, or bird, or, well you get the idea right.
