Tour - Socialization Area

Animal Topics  Virtual Tour: Socialization Area
(Animals, Animal Control, Animal Shelters, Animals in Disaster, Animals in Public Places, 
 Animal Friendly Program,  Animal Ownership, Animal Bites)

Socialization2

When you bring a pet into your home, that animal is dependent
on you for the rest of its life. Therefore, it's important that you
and your new best friend have a good "fit". For instance, if you
have small children, it would be good for you to see how the animal behaves around children.  

Socialization1

Some shelters have quiet areas where people looking for a 
new friend-for-life can spend time with the animal to get to 
know its  personality.
