National Pet Week - Responsible Pet Ownership

National Pet Week - Responsible Pet Ownership

Owning a pet is a privilege, but the benefits of pet ownership come with responsibilities.

Be a responsible pet owner:

1. Commit

- Avoid impulsive decisions when selecting a pet.

- Select a pet ​that's suited to your home and lifestyle.

- Keep only the type and number of pets for which you can provide appropriate food, water, shelter, health care and companionship.

- Commit to the relationship for the life of your pet(s).

- Provide appropriate exercise and mental stimulation.

- Properly socialize and train your pet.

2. Invest

- Recognize that pet ownership requires an investment of time and money .

- Make sure your pet receives preventive health care (vaccinations, parasite control, etc.), as well as care for any illnesses or injuries.

- Budget for potential emergencies.

3. Obey

- Clean up after your pet.

- Obey all local ordinances, including licensing, leash requirements and noise control.

- Don't allow your pet to stray or become feral.

4. Identify

- Make sure your pet is properly identified (i.e., tags,microchips , or tattoos) and keep its registration up-to-date.

5. Limit

- Don't contribute to our nation's pet overpopulation problem: limit your pet's reproduction through spay/neuter, containment or managed breeding.

6. Prepare

- Prepare for an emergency or disaster, including assembling an evacuation kit.

- Make alternate arrangements if you can no longer provide care for your pet.

- Recognize any decline in your pet's quality of life and make timely decisions in consultation with a veterinarian.
