Adopting A Pet is For Keeps

Many shelters are now empty because so many people decided to adopt a pet during this pandemic. They are cooped up in their homes and now have the time to care for a pet but are these decisions well thought out? Don’t get me wrong, it is wonderful that many of these wonderful pets will get new forever homes but what worries me is that some decisions were made hastily and our of boredom.

Adopting a pet is like adopting a child. They become a family member and require love and care just like a child does. My fear is that after this crisis eases and people go back to a new normal way of living, many pets will be returned to shelters.

Before adopting a pet, you must be certain that you’re up to the responsibility and are certain that you can provide a loving, caring home. If you can’t be certain about these things, then leave pet adoption for true pet lovers who will ensure a great home for each of these wonderful creatures.

Remember, your pets count!
