Some of our animals are puppies and kittens that will be starting their lives as companions. Older dogs and cats may have had previous owners, and you may have to re-educate these animals to some degree. However, they may have already be familiar with living in a home and have been exposed to house-breaking, litter boxes and obedience training. Remember, too, that companion animals are remarkably adaptable. They have lots of love to give and they really seem to appreciate their new homes. Just because they lived with someone else first, doesn’t mean they won’t make a wonderful companion for you.
