Before You Visit the Shelter

Home » Adopt A Pet » Before You Visit the Shelter

  • Make sure that everyone who lives in your household wants to have a pet.

  • Consider researching online for the type of pet that may be best for you or your family based on available time, interest, experience, and the needs of different breeds.

  • Take into consideration housing conditions such a house, apartment or condo.

  • If renting, contact the landlord to make sure pets are allowed and whether a pet deposit is required in advance.
