Tips for Saving Money on Pet Care

  • Consider adopting from a humane or rescue organization; they sometime ask only what you can afford and may include the price of spaying or neutering
  • Think about all the costs before you choose which pet is right for you
  • Buy second-hand supplies such as pet beds, collars, leashes and toys from charitable retail outlets
  • Share boarding responsibilities with another pet owner
  • Practice preventive healthcare
  • Consider pet insurance
  • Stop smoking; pets suffer injury from second hand smoke
  • Buy a good quality pet food
  • And give your companion animal lots of exercise – it’s good for both of you!
