What Do I Need for a New Pet?

Posted

 

You have just made the decision that you are going to add a new member to your household, but what do you need to start off?

Depending on the animal friend who will be joining you different things are needed. Following you can find checklists for items that you will need to house and take care of your new animal addition.

Remember that size will matter when considering some of the items. Think about how big an animal will grow for crates, cages and homes, but fit to the current size with maybe some adjustable options for collars, leashes and harnesses.
