Want to adopt? How about a “child” with four legs and a tail
We have published a few articles this week on adoption as a way to start or expand your family. It can be a life changing experience for you and for the person you welcome into your home.
This time, let’s go in a slightly different direction. Let’s talk about adoption and additions to your family again. But this time, let’s talk about your new “children” with four legs and a tail.
At a recent KHMO conference, we caught up with Elise Blue from the Northeast Missouri Humane Society about the dos and don’ts of adopting a dog or cat, especially at Christmas.
Elise told us that the main thing to keep in mind is that the Christmas present with the cold nose is a long term commitment. “Pets are not a six month gift, they are not a three month gift, they are a gift for the life of the animal. It can range from ten years to fifteen years, if you have lucky twenty. They’re family members once you get them. “
Elise told us that at present the Humane Society does not have puppies for adoption, but that they are full of dogs and cats of all breeds, shapes and sizes, each of which could be the only one to complete your family.
