If you are thinking about adopting an animal there are some serious questions you need to be asking yourself. A pet is at least a 10-15 year commitment so it’s important to be committed. Here is a list of 11 things to think about before you adopt a pet.
1. Why Do You Want A Pet?
First things first, let’s talk about why you want a pet. This deep question might not cross your brain as you stare into the big, shiny eyes of an adorable puppy. But you really should take some time to soul search before adopting one. Are you lonely? Do you crave responsibility? Do you want to save an abandoned animal? Getting a pet is a big commitment, so figuring out why you want to do it is the best place to start.
