The Aniaml Scoop pages are just for fun... we take caring for Pets very serious. There are too many homeless pets in the world and we want you to take "steps" in preventing this nation wide problem... so before you get a pet, here are a few things you should think about...
Think about WHY you want an animal...
Before making the list, read the information below.
How much space do you have?
It would not be very "cozy" for you or the pet if you wanted a giraffe ...and you lived in a two bedroom apartment. Did you know that if you wanted a "giraffe" you could adopt one? Contact a zoo... many make adopting an animal easy and fun! ...but it can be very expensive!
What kind of exercise is needed for your pet?
Even tiny animals like hamsters need exercise... a habbit trail, or a wheel is great fun for them! A fish needs plenty of room in their tank so they can swim around.
Where will your pet live?
How will you care for your pet?
hard food $1.50 (should last you one week) =$1.50
cat liter $2.00 (1 bag should last you one week) = $2.00
it would cost you at least $5.90 a week to care for a cat.
...then there are pet toys, and doctor bills to think about too.
What animal is Best for you?
We did not make this page to discourage you from getting a pet... Pets make wonderful "friends!" But we really want you to "think" about what it takes to keep a "friend!" They, like you... need love! Love doesn't mean "only" cuddle and kisses, it means taking care of your new found "friend."
Pet's that are GREAT for the CITY...
