Keep in mind...
Remember watching Bob Barker on The Price Is Right?. If you watched it more than once, you’ll probably remember at the end of every show, Bob Barker would remind you to spay or neuter your pet so as to do your part to prevent pet overpopulation.
Puppies are so cute, but they’re also a handful to care for on a long-term basis. Adopting or purchasing a dog or cat should be thought of as a forever, long-term commitment. Pets become like family members. If you ask someone who thinks of their pet as a furry child, it's usually obvious that they would never want to give up their child so they have chosen to make a long-term commitment to provide the best care possible for their furbaby!
Pets are great companions. They are however a financial and emotional investment. Though we all pray our pets never get sick or injured, animals need regular checkups given by a veterinarian and veterinarian bills can be expensive. Pets also need food, bedding, and toys. Please keep these factors in mind and be sure you can afford your future furry friend.
