Get Your Family Involved
So, your ready to adopt a pet! This can be a very exciting time for you and your family but where do you start? Start by talking about what each person is looking for in a pet such as: type, personality and physical characteristics. The Adoption Counselors here at CHHS can help you turn all of that information into a good match for your family. Make sure you also include any pets you may already have in your discussion. Do they take easily to new pets? Are there any behavioral issue that may be addressed first. All of these things will help you select an animal that will be able to adapt better to your household.
Learn About Your Type Of Pet
Talk with your veterinarian, visit a library or search the internet. All of these can prepare you better to help your new pet adapt to its new environment. Learning how to feed, bathe and train your pet are just a few steps in learning how to be a terrific pet parent.
After you have decided on what type of pet you will adopt, you will need to purchase your supplies. One of the easiest ways to shop is with AmazonSmile. You can search for Caring Hands Humane Society and add us as your charitable organization. Every time you make a purchase through AmazonSmile 0.5% of your purchase will be donated to our mission.
Get To Know Personality
An Adoption Counselor will let you meet your potential companion to help you get to know them better before adoption. Not all pets are a suitable fit for every family. Get to know their personalities and don’t forget to ask questions. The Adoption Counselors spend time with these animals and get to know their behaviors and are the best way to get information.
