Pet Selection Tips

Looking for a New Pet?

First, keep in mind, that you will share your life with with a new pet for the next decade or two. 

Second, what you do in the first weeks of pet parenthood makes a difference in your future happiness, so plan ahead.

Third, it's hard to resist "love at first sight." 

Once you take the new pet home, it is "for better or for worse! " Why not choose.... "for better?'"
