Let us help you find the perfect furrever friend for you!
There are some very important factors to consider when adopting an animal into the family and it is a big responsibility, it’s a lifelong responsibility. Many of the animals we have helped rescue are either abandoned, lost, neglected or strays due to human negligence sadly.
Often people underestimate the responsibilities involved so when you adopt from a reputable rescue, you will go through a detailed adoption interview. If an adoption centre or rescue group does not go through this process, they are a very questionable organization and I would steer clear from them. Some of the factors may include the following:
- your daily available time
- adequate space in your home
- any health concerns that may impede you from caring for an animal for the duration of their average life span
- if your home environment is stable
- adequate income and stable finances to provide for the animal
- past experience with animals
- having plans in place when you are on vacation
- compatibility with other pets in the house
- references from your veterinarian if you have one
