Choosing A Pet

Choosing a pet is an important and often difficult decision.

Millions of pets are sent to animal shelters across the country because the pet did not meet the family's expectations or lifestyle. Adopting a pet is a life-long commitment. Not only will your pet become a part of your family, but it has been shown that pets improve our lives and our health. The best way to select a pet is to ask yourself some basic questions about yourself, your family, and the type of pet you want.

If you would like the professional staff of Caldwell County Animal Control to assist you in the selection of your next pet, please call us or email us to schedule an appointment to meet with an adoption counselor.

Please do not adopt a pet as a surprise gift.

Many pets are turned into animal shelters every year because the pet was unwanted. If you want to give a pet as a gift, please bring the recipient of the pet with you to choose one for themselves.
