Animal Shelters Warn of Adopting Pets as Gifts

With the holidays here, some families are looking to add to their clan with an adopted cat or dog.

But an animal as a gift is quite a commitment and you need to make sure your family is ready for the additional responsibility and costs.

Shelters like the Osceola County Animal Control have plenty of cats and dogs for adoption and are more than willing to help you find the right animal for your situation.

Different breeds have different personalities and needs.

Some aren't suitable for young children or to be around other pets.

Research now can save you regretting a pet adoption later.
