Why a shelter or rescue group?
Do your homework
So now you’ve decided to add a new pet to your family. The first question to answer is what kind of pet will be the best fit for your household? Do you have enough time to devote to the daily needs of a dog? Is there someone in your household who is allergic to cats? Have you considered a non-traditional pet such as a rat or another small animal? Doing your homework in advance will make your search easier and increase the chances that your new pet will be a happy addition to the family.
Waiting for just the right one?
If for some reason you don’t find what you’re looking for right away, don’t be discouraged. Sadly shelters and rescue groups receive new animals every day, so keep checking back with them. Some groups also keep a waiting list, so they can call you if an animal matching your preference becomes available.
Visit your local shelter or rescue
It’s important to check the websites of your local shelter or rescue as well. And don’t forget to visit your local shelter or rescue in person—sometimes all it takes to find your perfect match is to look directly into a pet’s eyes and fall in love.
