Welcoming a pet to your home is a source of joy and happiness. The decision to take in a pet from a rescue or shelter can be the best you have made. You will need to consider bits of information to make sure it is the right pick.
- Seek to know the reasons that make the cat or dog end up in a center. It will prepare you for behavioral challenges or training needs for the pet.
- Ask what health checks have been performed on the pet and seek to know if they require medication or additional care once the pet gets home.
- Enquire about the adoption process and timelines as well as any fees that will be paid up before signing the adoption agreement.
If you do want to switch pet foods, ask a veterinarian for advice on transitioning to a new food to avoid gastrointestinal upset. Vets can also counsel you on the best food for the pet’s life stage and lifestyle.
