Adopting a Pet
Adopting a pet is a big step — but we have a feeling you’re ready for it if you’re here. Before starting your search, get tips on choosing the right pet for your lifestyle, preparing your home for a furry family member, and even become a training expert before bringing your pet home.
MakING a Donation
If you can’t adopt, the idea of donating to a dog shelter might be a better option if you want to help. Find out what options are available in your community. If you aren’t familiar with the local shelters, look up your city on the Blue Cross for Pets website.
Interesting facts about cats and dogs
Dog lovers outnumber cat lovers
People who say they love dogs outnumber cat-lovers by 6%, according to one USA study.
Dog lovers are friendlier and more extroverted in comparison to cat lovers. The latter are more independent.
Cats Smell With Their Mouths
Cats have a Jacobson’s organ which is a small scent gland located in the roof of the mouth. It senses chemical stimuli such as marks or pheromones.
Cats and Milk
Some cats, similar to people, can’t digest milk. Adult cats often can’t brak lactose in milk and even a small bowl of milk can cause diarrhoea. Stick to water!
Dog’s mouth is full of germs. Contrary to people dogs are more resistant to some bacteria like salmonella so be careful next time you allow your dog to lick your face.

How Much Does Adopting Cost?
Adoption or fostering: what's the difference?
The main difference between fostering and adoption is that the former is temporary (unless you decide to adopt the pet that you’re fostering 🙂 We have seen this many times!). There are many dogs who need temporary home for either medical or stress reasons. You can find out more about fostering a pet at Bettersea organisation.
