Adopting a dog can be a great experience, but there is also a lot of responsibility that goes with it. When considering if you are ready for a new dog think about the following factors. What is you schedule like and will you have the time needed to devote to your new dog. Are there any children, since not all dogs do well with children under 6. What type of residency do you have, will there be enough room for a dog?

After mulling over these questions, the next step is a trip to your local shelter and rescue center. You will be required to fill out a questionnaire and then meet with an adoption counselor who will help match you to a dog. You will be given some one-on-one time with the new dog to see how you get along. The shelter may require all members of the household visit the shelter to meet the new dog before the adopting can be approved.

The rest of the adoption is fairly simple. The person adopting may need to be a minimum age of 21 and have valid ID. If you live in an apartment, you may be required to show proof that pets are allowed by your landlord and ff you own a townhouse or condo, you may need to provide a copy of the by-laws saying pets are acceptable. Adoption fees can vary from $100 – $200 and all dogs should be up current on all shots and neutered or spayed.
