Pets don’t make good presents

by the100companies

Surprising someone with a pet for the holidays can result in momentary excitement with long-term regret or emotional trauma – for the animal and the person – when it doesn’t work out.

Pets are a huge responsibility. Both domesticated pets and captive-bred exotic animals like wolfdogs require special food, veterinary care, fencing and enriching toys. There is a time commitment and training required to keep that pet well behaved.

Fostering a furry friend for an overnight stay, holiday or longer is a fantastic opportunity to give a pet some special attention while deciding if the commitment is something you’re prepared to make.
