Adoption Advice for the Holiday Season
Think Twice Before Giving Pets As Gifts This Holiday. There is nothing cuter than a cuddly puppy or kitten under the tree on Christmas morning. But the American Humane Association is warning that the days that follow can often result in a lonely pet facing an uncertain future at the local animal shelter. Before you pick out the perfect furry friend, consider the following:
Choosing a pet is a personal decision. It should not be made by anyone other than those who will take care of it.
Pets, especially young pets, require time, energy and money. It can be overwhelming to a family, especially when it is a surprise.
Before purchasing or adopting a dog or cat, take time to consider the long-term commitment of owning a pet.
Because many dogs and cats can live 15 years or more, the pet becomes a part of the family. It is important to ensure that everyone in the house is willing to provide a healthy environment for the pet.
Pets are not toys. Pets need a calm, safe place where they can feel comfortable. Taking on a new pet during a less hectic time of the year is probably a wiser choice.
Since the holidays often come with travel and irregular schedules, families may miss out on the best opportunity to train a young pet. Shelters often consider poorly trained or poorly socialized animals not adoptable, resulting in euthanasia.
When a pet doesn't work out for a family it becomes someone else's problem, usually the local animal shelter's. In the months following the holiday season, shelters see a sharp spike in animal surrenders.
