Animal Care

Choosing to have a companion animal in your life is a big responsibility and a lifelong commitment. Most companion animals are fully dependent on humans for their quality of life. It is important to ensure you and your family can properly care for a companion animal and understand all of their needs before you adopt them into your family.

Companion animals don't just need food and water, they need appropriate shelter and living space, regular veterinarian (vet) check-ups and preventative vet care to ensure they remain happy and healthy. Just as importantly, your companion animal needs you: your time, care and attention. Many companion animals need mental stimulation and regular exercise to prevent them from becoming bored or overweight as well.
