Adopting a pet means permanently accepting an animal into your life through all the changes of its life. They’re living beings like humans, and have a natural life cycle: Baby (Puppy/Kitten), Adolescent, Adult, and Senior. Some animals can live 10-15 years, so the natural life cycle is something that potential adopters who intend to be responsible pet owners should give a lot of thought to.
Adopters should always choose the type of pet that matches their lifestyle. Happily, we have many wonderful animals to select from in order to find the perfect animal to fit your needs. We have big dogs, little dogs, puppies, senior dogs, lap dogs, dogs and cats with long hair or short hair, quiet cats, vocal cats, cats that are kid, pet, and stranger friendly, kittens, and adults that are actually perpetual kittens. Some of our dogs and cats have special needs and some need special homes.
Things you should factor into your decision include:
You should consider how a dog or cat would fit in around family members - particularly children and other pets. Some animals love the natural exuberance of small children, while others prefer an unexciting environment.
Giving a home to a rescued animal is one of the most rewarding experiences a person can have. However, it is important to know and feel that you are ready to take on the commitment of another life -- a life that will be totally dependent on you for up to 10-15 years.
