Making sure that a pet adoption is in the best interest of the animal and your family is a question future pet owners should answer before adopting a cat or dog. April Delfosse of the Door County Humane Society says that an initial “meet and greet” with all family members is a good start.
Delfosse also says that determining how your lifestyle will adjust with a new pet is another thing to consider. The Door County Humane Society just raised $100,639 in a national pet challenge and finished 6th out of over 500 other organizations around the country. The monies will go towards operational costs of maintaining over 700 animals per year at the shelter, according to Delfosse.
