Before you bring your new furry friend home, you may want to consider a few things. Your available free time, lifestyle and finances are all things you should weigh. Because The Idaho Humane Society has a lot more than just dogs and cats you can consider a wide range of options.
“Some animals, it doesn’t take much to sustain them,” said Kristine Schellhaas with the Idaho Humane Society. “Small animals are very easy, you clean their cages, and they do require some attention. But when it comes to other animals like dogs, depending on the type of dog you have that could require a significant amount of time.”
