Thinking this might be the year you gift a loved one with a pet? You should really think about that gift decision. Animals are a commitment, they need constant attention and love and if you're not equipped to fully take on that role, along with multiple responsibilities, then you may want to take a moment and think about what you're getting yourself into.
We're not saying that one shouldn't adopt an animal, we believe having an animal in your life enriches it but it's important to realize everything that comes with a pet. Yes, it's hard work, and it is extremely rewarding if you put the effort into it, but if you don't have the time then perhaps now is not the right time.
