Tip #3: Adopt Responsibly

Animal shelters have seen a spike in the number of pets being abandoned and given up for adoption in recent weeks as a result of shrinking household budgets. In what's been called the " foreclosure pet" phenomenon some pets have even been found abandoned inside foreclosed homes.

These dumped pups and cats need homes, so if you're prepared for the long-term physical, emotional, and economic implications of pet ownership, opt for adoption. For a list of local adoption sites, visit Pets 911.
