DIGITAL COLOR POSTMARK

More than half of U.S. homes have at least one pet, with the number growing every year. The most common domesticated animals are dogs and cats, but pets come in all shapes and sizes. Pets offer their human companions unconditional love and happiness, as well as physical and emotional health benefits. They are more than just animals, many people consider them members of the family. Whether you prefer the silky scales of a corn snake or the warm fluff of a guinea pig, responsible pet ownership begins with familiarizing yourself with the animal possession laws and regulations in your area and finding the right pet for your life and needs. Choosing a pet whose specific needs you can understand and accommodate will ensure that your new animal friend will live a happy, healthy, and safe life.
