  • Do I have the appropriate living space for a pet?
  • Will I be able to provide it with necessities such as food and water?
  • Am I willing to spend for medications and procedures should it become ill?

  • Am I willing to commit myself to caring for my pet throughout its life?


If you answered a sure yes to these, then it means that you are ready to face the physical and emotional demands of owning a pet.
