As the pandemic continues, one silver lining is that many shelters are experiencing a record number or adoptions.
PetSmart Charities National Adoption Days runs now through November 22. You can find animals for adoption as well as get expert advice from PetSmart on bringing your new furry family member home.
All pets should see a veterinarian within a week or two of adoption. The vet will make sure your pet is healthy, up to date on shots, and can help discuss and work through any issues.
Another important safety tip is pet-proofing your home. It's best to get at animal level and to find things you may not think about. Gate off areas you don't want your pet to enter, make sure electrical cords are out of the way, and don't leave choking hazards out. Make sure your pet has plenty of toys so they don't get bored.
