Providing the best possible care to your animal will insure it lives a long prosperous life that can be enjoyed by all. Being a responsible pet owner involves substantial time, effort, and responsibility. Be sure to fully evaluate your ability to provide a pet with all that is necessary before making that leap to adopt. Some animals require more time and energy than others, but in all cases be prepared to provide the animal with the following:
- Access to food and based on dietary need;
- Access to water and shelter at all times (they need water just like us and they need to escape from the hot and cold temperatures of the High Desert);
- Affection and attention, including toys used to enrich their lives while you may be away; and, most importantly,
- Unconditional love!
