a guide to pet adoption, courtesy of homeoanimal.com

nearly three years ago now (!!!), i wrote this post about the best friends animal society, whose mission it is to save dogs and cats housed in kill shelters. while i’m sad to report that i haven’t had the pleasure of adopting since (yet!) i still continue to follow the incredible work they do. so when someone at a similarly great organization called homeoanimal reached out and asked me to share some news with my readers, there was only one answer. behold the ultimate guide to pet adoption, a helpful and extremely thorough guide that covers just about every question and concern a person might have about bringing a furry friend into his/her family. if you’re looking to take the leap (which i can assure you will be one of the best decisions of your life), i urge you to peruse the guide. then visit an adoption facility in person to check out some potential new additions to your family and chat with staff members. warning: be prepared to spontaneously adopt on the spot. i did this myself nearly a decade ago and there was no looking back. but that’s a story for another day…
