Before You Adopt
An important step in the adoption process is discussing with family members what expectations they have for the new pet, whether they will have the time, patience, energy and financial ability to care for a pet throughout his lifetime. Be realistic in assigning pet care duties. Children may have good intentions, but their activities may inadvertently keep them from adhering to the pet’s need for a reliable routine. Together, research the type of pets you are considering as this will make your adoption experience all the more rewarding. Remember, too, that HSBC members can discuss any of these issues with you.
