Welcome to B4 U GET A PET!

The goal of this site is to be a valuable resource for people in the process of getting a pet. We hope you find what you are looking for, whether you are anticipating your first pet or your tenth.

The site was developed to provide soon-to-be pet owners with practical considerations to think about even before getting a pet including questions to consider asking the source of your future pet, creating a plan for socializing your pet from the start, planning how you will introduce your new pet into a household with other pets or children, and thinking through how much you should budget for the annual cost of owning a pet.

If you are new to this site, take our fun cat quiz or dog quiz to test your current knowledge – it’ll provide you with answers to common misconceptions and may help you identify topics that you want to learn more about.

If you are still researching about the perfect pet for you, you might want to complete our owner expectations questionnaire for dogs and cats. This resource is intended to highlight considerations you should make when choosing a pet in order to help find the right pet personality for you and your current lifestyle.

Our hope is that this site will provide you with a number of resources along with the information you need to form a loving and permanent relationship with your new pet even before you bring it home.
