While the majority of people love the idea of keeping pets put very few people realize the responsibility that comes with it. Adopting a pet basically means you are adopting a little baby and you have to be responsible for their happiness, for their health, and for their safety.

This is unfortunately one major reason why pets are abandoned at animal centers as many people after adopting pets realize they can either not afford the animals or cannot keep up with their energy or the mess they make. As a result, poor helpless animals are abandoned, left with anxiety at animal centers wondering what they did so wrong that their owner decided to leave them. To add to this misery, many of these abandoned pets are euthanized, all done to simply ease humans of their burden.
