Can I Afford This?

Money rules the world, so make sure the furry friend fits into your budget. Not only should you think about your available time, consider your available dollars for food, bedding, toys, etc., in addition to (sometimes) pricey vet visits or overnight stays.

Yes! Consider the money. I volunteer at a shelter and it's amazing how many dogs end up at the shelter because the family couldn't afford them anymore, especially during the recession. Dogs cost a decent amount of money - $20-60 for a bag of food, vet care (mandatory vaccines alone can end up costing hundreds of dollars a year) plus any other vet, toys, upkeep expenses.
