The decision to adopt requires careful consideration. By adopting, you are making the commitment to care for that animal for the rest of their life. That could mean 10 to 15 years for dogs and up to 20 years for cats.
Are you ready to adopt?
As you go through lifestyle changes such as moves, new jobs and the birth of children, your animal will remain a permanent part of your life. If circumstances change, will you still be able to care for your pet?
Your personality and lifestyle should be considered to help work out what pet is right for you. Take the time to research different breeds and check out shelter websites to see the animals currently up for adoption.

Above all, don’t be afraid to ask shelter staff for guidance. The Lost Dogs’ Home adoptions team are experts at finding perfect matches!
