Pet Ownership 101
From Jeff Layne on March 12th, 2018
Butte Humane Society
That puppy or kitten is SO cute and it needs a home…but before students impulsively adopt a furry friend, they need to consider all that pet ownership involves. Human Humane Society volunteer Honey Souza speaks about the many responsibilities that come with pet ownership – responsibilities that might be incompatible with a student’s lifestyle. She advocates for having pets spayed or neutered, which is one of many expenses, along with the adoption fee, food, vaccinations, and medical treatment. If students still wish to get a pet, Souza offers advice on where to get one and how to pick out the best breed for their lifestyle.
