June is the start of summer and is the official National Pet Adoption Month. What a better way than to start with adopting a pet. There are so many animals in your local shelters that need a loving home. Many of these animals have been abused, mistreated, abandoned or their owner just was not prepared for the responsibility.
At Castor & Pollux, they know firsthand how pets can enrich our lives, and yet there is still a serious need to find good homes for perfectly adoptable pets. That’s why they have chosen pet adoption as their platform of choice. They may be a small company in Oregon, but that doesn’t mean they can’t make an impact for homeless dogs and cats across the country. That’s why we developed their PetWorks Partners Program.
Here are some great tips to get you ready for your pet:
Make sure the pet fits your family. If you have children or another pet and you are getting them a companion, bring them with you so you can see the interaction between your children and/or pet and the new pet you intend to adopt. Nothing is worse than bringing home a new pet just to bring it back because they become aggressive towards your children or pet.
Do you have time for a pet? Dogs, cats, and other animal companions cannot be ignored just because you’re tired or busy. They require food, water, exercise, care, and companionship every day of every year. Many animals in the shelter are there because their owners didn’t realize how much time it took to care for them.
Be Prepared. The costs of pet ownership can be quite high. Licenses, training classes, spaying and neutering, veterinary care, vaccinations, grooming, toys, food, kitty litter, and other expenses add up quickly.
Have the right pet food. You should buy pet food that is suited for your pet’s age and type. Pets who have the wrong food diet can get severely sick. What better way to prepare with the proper food than to win a free bag of Castor & Pollux food?
