Think Twice Before Giving A Pet As A Present
By Dr. Megan Weiler, Veterinarian
- The person receiving the pet may not have the financial means to care for the pet.
- They may not have the time or energy to take care of the pet properly.
- Maybe it isn’t what they would pick for themselves. Maybe they would rather have a bearded dragon than a kitten.
- The novelty of a pet as a gift can wear off just like a new toy. Then the pet ends up being neglected.
