You know you can't buy love, but you can rescue love. Please be sure to rescue your animals from your local APA, shelter or even Petco or Petsmart when they have local shelters or organizations there with cats and dogs to adopt.
Remember you don't have to get your animal in the spur of the moment, many places will allow you to foster to adopt. This allows you to get to know the animal and see if he/she will be a good fit for you and your family.
We hope you can find your best dog or cat friend at your local shelter and give them a forever home.
