The Bare EssentialsThese are the things you absolutely need for your new pet, so make sure to stock up before you bring your new friend home.
- Water + Food Bowls: Metal or ceramic bowls are great long-lasting options that look good and are easy to keep clean. To make your pet feel even more at home, a custom pet bowl with your pet’s hand-drawn portrait is a paw-fect homecoming gift for your fur baby!
- Pet tags and Collar: Just like you, your pet deserves to look good! Find a fun and stylish collar and leash, and make sure to get personalized pet tags made with your pet’s name and your contact information. This is important to keep your pet safe in case you become separated.
- Food: Most adoption centers will provide you with a few days of food. It’s recommended to integrate their new food slowly in with their old food to minimize any digestive issues as your pet adjusts.
- Crate: If you are adopting a puppy, a crate is an excellent choice for training. Even if you are adopting an older dog, it can be a good idea to use a crate at first to create a safe space for your dog as they get used to their new environment.
