If you are thinking about adopting an animal there are some serious questions you need to be asking yourself. A pet is at least a 10-15 year commitment so it’s important to be committed. Here is a list of 11 things to think about before you adopt a pet.
2. Which Breed Will Fit Your Lifestyle?
Sometimes it’s necessary to burst your own bubble, and realize that a certain pet will never be right for you. For example, the great dane of your dreams won’t work if you, say, live in a 200-square-foot apartment. “Fortunately, most shelters and rescue groups are excellent at match-making when it comes to finding adopters the best pet that fits their lifestyle,” Jiménez says. “They will ask you questions about your schedule, activity level and hobbies and what you’re looking for in a pet, so that ultimately they can match you up with a pet that best matches your lifestyle and expectations.”
