Some animal advocates say don’t give pets as gifts, but research shows it’s not a bad idea.Oh, the joy of the holidays, with the possibility of a squirming puppy or fluffy kitten waiting under the Christmas tree. But what happens when house training gets frustrating or an eager child gets bored with his new furry friend?
There’s a long-standing belief that pets given as gifts, particularly around the holidays, often end up in shelters several weeks later. In fact, this belief is so prevalent that some rescue groups discourage such “gift” adoptions around the holidays.
It’s a serious concern, but there’s another side to this story.
