Choosing and Caring for Your Pet
It’s estimated that U.S. households are home to almost 17 million small pets, such as rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters and gerbils. While they are fun to own, small pets require care, feeding and attention. Here is some useful information on how to choose the right pet and keep your small pet happy and healthy. Once you have chosen the type of pet that is right for you, we recommend you check availability of small animals at local animal shelter and rescue organizations. You may also adopt small animals at a local pet store, where store associates can help you decide what supplies you need for a happy, healthy pet! Remember that being a pet parent is a commitment that should not be taken lightly, but can be very fun and rewarding!
