Is you life settled enough that you can feel confident you’ll be able to make a 14-20 year commitment to your adopted pet? That’s how long many dogs and cats live. Some live shorter lives, some live longer.

Puppies and kittens require daily play and training. Puppies must be socialized with other dogs and people, situations and environments. They take an extensive amount of time and must go outside no matter what the weather. Kittens must be handled daily and must be socialized with people. They must have play time each day to keep them healthy and must be taught where they may scratch to sharpen their claws- and where they may not scratch!
