Pets as Gifts

Pets as gifts sounds like an awfully good idea.. actually it is an awful idea most of the time.  The giver of the gitt may think that the person, especially a child, will love the new “furbaby” and initially this may be so.   But a pet is at least a 10 yr commitment, with a lot of expense to the owner.  Can the person receiving the pet afford this expense?  Then when the first flush of excitement is over the pet can become a burden, having to feed and clean up. If the pet damages furniture or makes messes while then finding the pet a home becomes an option.  Rescue societies have their largest intake after Christmas when the new pet is treated like a broken toy and thrown away.   Please think  before giving a pet for Christmas.
