Making the decision to adopt a new pet is always an exciting moment. At this time you may already be searching through our pet profiles online or daydreaming about the many activities that you will be doing together with your new friend. But, before you dive in and decide on what size or breed you will be adopting, we suggest asking yourself, "What personality am I looking for?" instead.
Preconceived ideas of what your new best friend will look like can often cause other eligible animals to be overlooked at the shelter. You may be surprised to find that your ideal pet is not always the "type" you had in mind.
Maybe you've been searching for a lap dog that knows how to cuddle and enjoy a movie night in. May we suggest Doug? He is better than any blanket and will never complain about watching UP for the hundredth time.
Looking for someone to keep you motivated while you train? Roscoe is your guy! His idea of heaven is a pool full of tennis balls.
How about a good friend that will enrich your life and grow up with your kids? Play with Duncan once, and he will be your friend for life!
Whatever your ideal pet personality traits may be, HSEP is here to help you find the perfect match for your home. Our Animal Care Associates (ACAs) are available to guide you and answer any questions you might have.
