Who Decides to Adopt?

Adding a new furry family member is a big decision! Even if the pet is "yours," everyone who lives in the household is affected by this new addition, including partners, roommates, and other pets. Is everyone in the home on board to help care for the pet if situations arise? And, even if you live separately as a couple, where will the pet stay, and who gets the pet if the relationship ends? There are so many variables at work here, so I tried my best to come up with choices below to reflect the many aspects to consider. I'm curious to hear how you feel about whose responsibility it is to adopt a pet.
