But there’s a lot to do before you bring your pet home from the shelter. To complete this How-To you will need: Landlord approval Money A good shelter Completed paperwork and references Patience A pet carrier Step 1: Decide if you’re ready Pets need love, but they also need attentive owners who are patient, available, and able to afford the expenses and effort to take care of them. Since many animals—like dogs, cats, and birds—can live for more than a decade, determine whether your schedule, lifestyle, and finances will allow you to be a good long-term pet owner. Step 2: Check in with your landlord If you rent your home, check in with your landlord to make sure you’re living in a building that’s pet-friendly. Otherwise, bringing home a furry friend may violate the terms of your lease. Tip: To prevent future hassles, get a signed, dated document from your landlord stating that pet ownership is permitted on the property. Step 3: Find a shelter Search online for a local shelter.

      Poor people can adopt pets, too. Ask about programs in your area. … and don’t adopt a pet the same day you meet it. Try to sleep on it: come back the next morning. You might want to visualize the pet in your house, before he/she gets there. peace

      Give these animals a chance. Think how great it’ll be to save an animal from a life in a cage or worse, euthanasia.

      The schools in the US stopped emphasizing spelling sometime between 1961 (when I entered school) and 1967 (when my sister did). Her curriculum emphasized rapidly putting ideas to paper and cleaning up the spelling later. Naturally, they continued emphasizing it for us. Since then, the emphasis on spelling seems to have been lost altogether. However, a great many people work with code, which doesn’t allow you to misspell, so I think most of it is either laziness or attitude.

      Man, if people only new how important it is to adopt animals from a shelter vs. getting one from a private breeder or pet store.
