BOISE, Idaho — Adding a furry friend to your family this Christmas may seem like the perfect present, but the Idaho Humane Society is asking everyone to think twice before surprising loved ones.
Bringing an adoptable pet home for the holidays can be a good idea, but you want to make sure the recipient is ready for everything a new pet entails. From time to feeding to grooming and more, pets can be a lot for one person or even an entire family. IHS says they see an uptick in returns in January after pets are adopted during the holiday season. Remember, it’s a lifetime commitment when you adopt a pet.
