Getting a new pet can be very exciting but it’s important to choose a pet that suits you. There are a number of key things to think about before making a decision, luckily there are lots of resources out there to help you make the best decision for you and your future pet.
Which pet is right for me and my lifestyle?
All pet owners have a legal responsibility to help protect the welfare of animals. This includes considering key factors such as:
the need for a suitable environment (place to live)
the need for a suitable diet
the need to exhibit normal behaviour patterns
the need to be housed with, or apart from, other animals (if applicable)
the need to be protected from pain, injury, suffering, and disease
To live a happy life together one of the most important decisions you can make is choosing the right pet for your lifestyle. You may want to consider which pet would best suit the place you live and how much time you have to spend with the pet, especially time at home.
