We have moved! Visit us at our new forever home at 3501 E 71st Street, Loveland, CO 80538

Although it can be tempting to bring home a cuddly critter after visiting him or her for the first time at the shelter, it’s important to ask yourself some very important questions before adopting an animal. Before you adopt, please ask yourself the following questions:

  • How many hours will you be home each day to spend with your pet?
  • Where will your pet be at times when you’re not home?
  • What is your (and your neighbor’s) tolerance for barking?
  • Do you have an enclosed fence? For ‘escape artists,’ we recommend a minimum of 6 foot tall fence.
  • Are you willing to train your new pet?
  • Do you have the time to exercise/train your pet each day?
  • What is your tolerance for naughty pet behavior (that can be corrected with proper training) including chewing furniture and shoes, and housetraining accidents?
  • Do you (or another member of your family) have allergies to animals?
  • What level of energy are you willing to work or live with?
  • Will you be able to afford ongoing veterinary care? Training classes?
  • Will you be moving soon?
  • Does your landlord and/or HOA accept pets? Do they have policies on certain breeds? Click here for information on pet-friendly housing in Larimer County.
