Welcoming a pet into your home after it has adapted to the shelter is a gradual process; from the papers to the shots, to spreading the news and pet proofing your home, it can become hectic trying to accumulate a steady check list of what has and hasn’t been done. Do the neighbors know? Is the bed completely ready? Is the food brand the same as the shelter’s, and is there a collar and leash ready? Who’s in charge of feeding it and walking it? Although at times it may seem overwhelming, helping a pet into a new environment is easier than most people think.
