Need a pet? Buying versus Adopting

Are you lonely? Nobody is likely to spend time with you and you feel need for a pet as a friend? If you are those who love pets, you must want to possess at least one pet in your house. Or if your kids have been pining for a puppy for a long while and you will consider it the right time for them to have a pet, what should you do? Buy one or adopt one?

Since possessing a pet will be expensive with the high costs of pet ownership: Licenses, training, spaying/neutering, grooming, vet care, food, litter, and other expenses add up, and buying a pet will cost at least CAN$ 250 for a puppy, adoption will be a smart choice for budget-conscious people.

Luckily in Regina, there is a place for pet adoption. Its name is Regina Humane Society. Incorporated in 1964 as a non-profit organization, The Regina Humane Society has space for over 150 animals, a voluntary Board of Directors, 30 full-time and 2 part-time staff and 250 active volunteers. Throughout the years, the Society has retained its primary mission of improving the welfare of animals through programs and services in sheltering, education, protection, and advocacy. The Society continues to offer the public an increasingly wide range of support services to the City of Regina and surrounding area.

If you are a Reginan, you will properly pay for an adoption fee from as low at $ 86 to as high as $ 148.25. Adoption fees include: 1st vaccinations, free veterinary exam, spay/neuter surgery, pet care information.

Though you do not need a pet, please call to Animal Protection Services if you found a pet abuse or something miserable happing to a pet, and it makes up your concerns.
