Before you adopt a pet, there are lots of things to consider...
Few people can resist the face of a puppy or kitten, and often assume they must start with a baby animal when choosing a pet. Unfortunately, animal shelters often see these adorable animals returned when they are less than one year old because well-meaning adopters did not account for the time and energy required to raise a puppy, or the kitten was more than they bargained for. Most of these adopters could have been more successful with an adult dog or cat that required less effort.
