There is a lot more to consider than just the cost of giving a pet as a Christmas gift this holiday season. Pets given as gifts often find themselves back at a shelter or worse after the novelty has worn thin and the actual commitment of the animal is realized. April Delfosse from the Door County Humane Society advises gift seekers realize the expectations of being an owner.
Delfosse added that adopter should do research into the breeds they are interested in and visiting a shelter to meet the animal before making a final decision. The Door County Humane Society is hosting an open house today from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. You can find out more information about this event on our Web site.
