Don’t impulse buy pets
Don’t buy pets with no steady source of income
Don’t buy pets if you can’t afford the vet bills
Don’t buy a pet if your home situation is unsafe
Don’t use mental illness as an excuse for any of the above
Using mental illness or disabilities is no excuse for misstreating an animal. Look at your situation first and think about all the factors that come into play when having a pet. No matter what type of pet whether it be a small betta or a horse. There’s no simple easy pets!
THIS APPLIES TO SERVICE DOGS OR EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMALS TOO.
