TRUSTED PET SHOPS
PROSCONS
• Your pet will be readily available at the time you need it. No need to wait.

• If the pet shops get their supply from good breeders, you can be comfortable getting your pet from them. This does not mean you shouldn’t ask questions pertaining to the health of the pet, ASK! and also EXAMINE him or her. For each small furry pet we have mentioned, there is a section on how to examine/ what to look out for. See the small furry friends menu.
• “Trusted pet shops” may take good care of the pets, but there are “Bad ones” (quite a number) who will not take really good care of the pets and thus may end up having shorter lifespans. These “bad pet shops” are more into making profit.

• When dealing with pet shops, especially “bad ones,” the pets may have underlying behavioral and health issues that may not be disclosed to you as a buyer. That is why it is important to ask various questions and to also examine the pet.

• If you get a sick pet, you may drain your finances trying to get him or her better. Maybe your pet may get better and maybe they may die, leaving you heart broken.
GOOD PET BREEDERS
PROSCONS
• Breeders are seen to put quite some time and effort into properly planning to achieve good pet health and great personalities. They know the do's and don'ts of the animals they breed.

• The pet’s breeding and genetics is known and also she or he (pet) will have been used to being handled (held/ interacting with people) from birth.

• Breeders will always give you more information on the pet and also give references to vets.


• A breeder may not always have a baby hamster (litter) at the time you need one. They may ask you to wait even for a month or two. You get placed on a waitlist.

• “BAD breeders” will not take really good care of the pets. You need to be on the lookout. How do I know he or she is a reputable breeder?
RESCUING/ ADOPTION
PROSCONS
• Reputable rescues (rescue center or sanctuary) will inform you of any underlying behavioral and health issues making you fully aware of what you will be dealing with.

• Rescuing is considered the most ethical means by some individuals as you know that you are giving a pet a second chance of having loving care and a lovely home.
• Untrustworthy rescues (some advertisements) may give you pets that have underlying behavioral and health issues failing to disclose. Visit the person selling and see for yourself. Ask certain questions and examine the pet.

• Most of the times, rescue pets will present harder work compared to well-bred and well-handled pets from breeders. You need to make sure you got abundant resources to offer the needed care.

• If you get a sick pet, you may drain your finances trying to get him or her better. Maybe your pet may get better and maybe they may die, leaving you heart broken.
