For Christmas and birthdays, many families purchase a pet as a gift. The pets are normally dogs, cats, fish, rabbits, birds and more! They purchase these pets because the families think that they are great gifts, and will be easy to care for. Many of these families soon learn after a month or two, or less, that pets need loads of care, and sometimes if the pet shelters cant take in another pet, they either sell it for very cheap, or dump it in the street to die or find a new home. But the past owners couldn't care less if they die or live!

Pets need to be fed, and cleaned, and sometimes brushed, and played with, and given enough space to roam free, this might mean, a garden for a rabbit, a large cage or enclosed room for a bird, a large tank with hiding houses for a fish, and a nice big home for a cat and dog. Many of these families dont have all of these available for the pet, which causes many problems.

Some of these animals might chew or scratch your couch, poop wherever until trained not to, growl, meow, bark or scratch, and/or make life hard! But many of these families dont take that into account before purchasing the pet. Some families dont even purchase necessities for the pet until the next couple of days! Overall pets are hard to look after, and need loads of love, room, food and time. So before you purchase a pet, think about these following questions.

1: Can you afford the pets food, toys, cage/tank/hut?

2: Do you have enough time to spend with the pet?

And most importantly, you need to accept the fact that your pet will poo around your house until they learn not to, scratch or chew if something or someone is in their way, and destroy lots of things case they dont understand!

Please think before buying your family a pet, they take lots of effort, and shouldn't deserve to be left to die! If you do get one and you cannot deal with it anymore, find a no kill shelter and give them away, or give them away to a family member or friend. But remember, no pet deserves to die because they dont understand you.
