Please follow these tips before you adopt an animal;

Obligations: Having a pet means having a LIVING BEING at home, which has a series of needs that it will not be able to satisfy by itself and which, therefore, requires you to assume that responsibility. Find out about the needs of a dog or cat and the obligations that come with having them with you, and seriously consider whether you will be able to take on that responsibility.

Discomfort: In addition to the obligations of having a pet, it can cause some “discomfort” at home, such as shedding hair, noises …, etc. Find out about the discomfort that a dog or cat can cause and think if you would be willing to live the next 10-15 years with those discomforts at home.

Behavior Problems: Sometimes, dogs or cats develop a series of behavioral problems that can become unbearable for humans (such as crying when they are alone or afraid, barking at all hours, stress, etc.). These problems have an origin and a solution. Find out about it before and think about what you would do if your dog or cat developed a behavior problem. Also, you should inform yourself before how a pet is educated and think if you will be able to do it yourself.

Home and family: Find out if your home is suitable to have an animal of the characteristics you are looking for (large or small size, active or quiet character, etc.). Also, worry about seeing if everyone agrees at home with the arrival of a new member to the family and if you will have any problems with them when integrating that animal into the house. Think about the character of the people who live with you and think about what the coexistence of those people with the pet you adopt would be like.

Personal circumstances: Think about whether your personal circumstances (work, partner, …) can change over the next 10-15 years and if you might have problems continuing to have the animal with you. Like, for example, a change in work schedule that prevents you from continuing to care for your pet, a new partner who does not want to live with the animal, moving to another country … etc.

Vacation: Think about what you will do on vacation with your pet. Think about whether it would be a problem for you to take him with you to your vacation spot. Also, if you have thought about leaving him in a residence for dogs or cats, find out about the prices of these residences or kangaroos for pets in your city and how far in advance you must reserve a place for your pet (maybe, when you try, there is no room for him).

Breeds: If you want a dog or cat of a certain breed, find out about the character and characteristics of the animals of that breed. You will find information in books, magazines, and Internet pages dedicated to them, … In addition, we advise you to inform yourself of the characteristics and advantages of mongrel dogs which are many.

Puppy/Adult: Both a puppy and an adult dog or cat have a series of needs and entail a series of obligations, but they are not the same. Both have a number of advantages and a number of disadvantages. Find out what it means to adopt a puppy and what it would be like to adopt an adult animal.
