Fantasy vs. Reality: Are the Holidays the Right Time To Bring Home a New Pet?
Parents love nothing more than to see a child break into a gigantic smile. And undoubtedly, a new puppy or kitten wearing a big red bow would receive such a reaction.
But if you’re considering surprising your child/children with a new pet this holiday season, we urge you to take some time to think about the day AFTER, the week after … and all the years to come.
If your family has long been planning to adopt a new pet - and you have done the research about the kind of animal that would be a good fit—then perhaps the holidays are a wonderful time to introduce your new family member. But if it seems more like a last-minute idea or an impulsive one, here are some facts to consider:
If you are certain this IS the right time for a new pet, we hope you will come to the San Antonio Humane Society to find the newest member of your family. However, if you have doubts about the timing, we urge you to consider purchasing a gift certificate so that you and your child/children can come and pick out the RIGHT pet at the RIGHT time. And if you do want to do something this holiday season to help the homeless dogs and cats of San Antonio, please consider making a donation to the San Antonio Humane Society.
Happy Holidays to all from the San Antonio Humane Society!
