Ask First Before Gifting a Pet
Giving a pet as a holiday gift could result in a problem if the person getting the animal hasn't approved it.
Oneida County Humane Society Director Bria Swartout talked with Ken Krall about giving pets as gifts.
Experts ask anyone thinking of giving a pet as a gift to remember it will be a 10 to 15 year commitment to the animal.
Swartout says a gift certificate gives the receiver options in picking out a pet the prefer. She says the gift certificate also could prevent someone from bringing an animal they don't want back to the shelter. The Oneida County Humane Society is 1852 North Stevens Street in Rhinelander.
