Considering buying little Billy a new pet as a gift? Think again.

Pets are the worst gifts to receive - especially for children. Unfortunately, many parents think their children can take care of a pet on their own. However, many children lack the responsibility and attention span for a pet. Soon they'll lose interest- you'll be stuck with that pet and off to the animal shelter it goes. And who's fault is it? Yours.

This is what happens when most parents buy their children pets as 'gifts'. In actuality, pets are like children. They have their needs and have to go to the vet when they're sick.

Parents ALWAYS need to remember these rules before purchasing any new pet:

As for purchasing a new pet, please adopt instead. These animals need homes much more than the ones in the pet stores.

Good luck!
