Discuss adopting a pet with all members of your family.

Think about the financial requirements of properly caring for an animal — this includes vet care, food & supplies.

If you are a tenant, obtain your landlord’s permission to bring an animal home.

Do some research — gather information about different companion animals to determine the best match for your family.

Make sure you understand the laws and requirements of pet ownership where you live.
