Do you have time for a pet?

What kind of lifestyle do you lead? Do you travel frequently or work late hours? Dogs, cats and other pets cannot be ignored just because you're tired or busy. Many animals are in the shelter because their owners didn't realize how much time it took to properly care for them. 

Before adopting, seriously consider whether you have the time to provide for the health of your new pet or the patience to raise a new puppy or kitten.
