Animal shelters have various species of animals. So do make your decision prior to heading out.
Once you decide on what kind of pet you want, make a list of the ones you're interested in.
Don't rush through the visit take your time and see the animals on your list if possible.
Spend time with the animal you're most interested in. This will help to build your bond.
Once you've made the bond and decided on your forever pet, it's time to sign the dotted line.
