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.

Sure, maybe a goldfish doesn’t need as much attention as a puppy, but everything obviously requires care. “Dogs, cats and other companion animals cannot be ignored just because you … are too tired or too busy,” noted an article on SSPCA.org. “They require food, water, exercise, care, and companionship every day of the year.” Just something to consider when you are choosing which pet is right for you.
