The decision to keep a pet should never be taken lightly. Once you are a pet owner, you have to be committed to your pet for its entire life. At no time should abandoning it be an option.

Here are some criteria:

  1. Feed your pet regular nutritious and balanced meals.
  2. Provide your pet with suitable housing.
  3. Groom your pet well, and regularly.
  4. Provide appropriate training for your pet.
  5. Bring your pet to a veterinarian for regular check-ups, and when it shows signs of sickness.
  6. Spend time with your pet.
  7. Pick up your pet's poop when you bring it out in public, and do not let it stray.
  8. Sterilise your pet to prevent unwanted litters.
  9. Microchip your pet for easy traceability in case it goes missing.
