How To Save A Pet’s Life?
There are several dogs and cats and other animals in India and other countries who suffer from accidental death every day and the number of deaths is not in hundreds or thousands, it’s in millions. Because of irresponsible owners or any circumstances, pets lose their shelters. If you find any dogs or cats on the roads, please contact shelter homes so that they will take those lives to the right place and find a home for them.
While getting a pet by whatever medium- either through commercials sources or adoption shelters, remember that you are making the promise to the life of the pet. You are offering not only shelter to him but its good health and protection is also your responsibility. The first thing that why do you need a pet, just to play with or for a show-off, if the reason is one of these then don’t buy one. Also think about the cost that is involved in owning a pet, his food, medications, toys, bedding, and basic products. The vet bills are generally on a higher side and very few of the pet owners go for medical insurance in order to protect them from unexpected emergencies.
Make sure you’ll be a responsible owner and can do justice to your job. Your pets would need you for feeding, bathing, cleaning, watering and exercising for initial days and they would love if you that for them. Also, think about the situations when you go on vacations, which will be responsible for the care of the pet. If you stay alone then make sure somebody’s there to take care of him when you go to the office.
