Pet tips
June 16, 2014, 05:00 AM By Scott Delucchi

Many people know they want to adopt, but aren’t sure about the timing. Some families want to wait until kids are school-age or until they’ve demonstrated a level of responsibility. For others, the decision centers around their living situation or lifestyle. They work too much now, but know it’s temporary. They aren’t in a pet-friendly rental now, but are looking to move soon. Or, perhaps one of the family’s decision-makers is trying to convince the others. These are key considerations. In some ways, adding a pet is a bit like having a baby, as there is no ideal time for this wonderful change. You’ll never be 100 percent prepared. I speak from experience, having done both a few times. If you can have pets where you live and if others in your family are on board, now’s an ideal time to adopt. Specifically, this Saturday at Peninsula Humane Society! We’re hosting an Adopt-a-thon, from 11 a.m. to midnight. It’s a pajama party themed event. You can show up in your jammies, and if you donate one blankie for our shelter animals, we’ll waive your adoption fee (except for puppies and kittens). We’ll have movies playing in our center and popcorn. And, throughout the day, we’ll post joyful adoption photos on our Facebook page. It gets better. We’ve partnered with Wag Hotels, a super-cool pet boarding facility with locations in Redwood City and San Francisco; they took our pajama-party event a step further, to a sleep over! They are giving a free night’s stay (valued at $60) to all our Adopt-a-thon adopters. You need not worry about what to do with your new pet if you have a weekend trip planned. Hopefully that trip won’t be for a few weeks, so your pet has time to settle in to your home. Then, you can get away, knowing your new companion is in good hands. Preview our animals this week!
