Is it a Good Idea to Give a Pet as a Gift?

While some people may think giving a pet as a gift during the holiday season is a good idea, is it really?

This time of the year is stressful as it is for some people and the demands of caring for a new pet can only heighten that stress.

But if a new pet is part of the plan, perhaps consider waiting until after the holiday season is over and life settles down before brining one into your home.
