Q. I’m thinking of getting a pet, but I’m not sure which pet is right for me. Can you give me any advice?
A. Getting a pet is a very exciting time, but providing everything for a new animal can end up being overwhelming. So, we’re asking people to #PawsFirst – to stop and think before taking on a new pet. Can you provide everything that a pet needs? Think P-E-T-S – place, exercise, time and spend. How suitable is your home for a pet? Can you give it the companionship and exercise it needs? Can you afford the lifetime costs? Why not head to our website and discover which pet is right for you and your lifestyle
